FC Select Academy Teams and Players are distinguished from Travel Teams and Players by practicing at least twice per week in the Fall and Spring without participating in regular weekend competitive matches. The academy is the base of the club and is a starting point for players looking to find a clear pathway into the world of competitive travel soccer.
Academy curriculum is designed and executed by senior staff coaches in order to develop players technically and prepare them for the rigors of competitive play.
Academy participants practice at least twice weekly in order to develop the technical skill to participate in weekend competition. Coaches will arrange friendly matches with other teams to develop skills in a less pressured environment
Winter moves indoors with either practice once weekly or a league match once weekly.
When registering with FCS the commitment to team and club is September through June.
