About SNSA

SNSA History

Southern Nevada Soccer Association (SNSA) is the largest soccer organization in the Las Vegas metropolitan area, with over 6,500 members annually in our recreational, competitive and adult soccer programs.  SNSA is a non-profit organization that operates the Henderson United and Southern Highlands United youth soccer leagues, the Heat FC competitive club, and the SNSA Adult league. 

SNSA was founded in 1998 when Green Valley and Black Mountain Soccer Clubs merged to form the Henderson United Youth Soccer (HUYS) Club.  HUYS attained league status in 2001 to provide recreational youth soccer services to Southern Nevada youth.  In 2007 the organization was renamed Southern Nevada Soccer Association to better reflect the geographical areas we serve and the expansion of services that include the Heat FC competitive soccer program, the Southern Highlands® United youth recreational league, and the SNSA adult soccer program.  


SNSA is affiliated with US Club Soccer for our recreational programs, and with United States Youth Soccer (USYSA) and US Club Soccer for our competitive programs.  Through the aforementioned affiliations, SNSA is a member of the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), the governing body of soccer in the United States.  Click on the link below for SNSA's youth soccer organization chart.
