-Creating an elite academy environment focused on complete player development with the primary objective of preparing players to play at the collegiate level
-There is another pathway that doesn’t require the big name, cost, or outrageous travel of MLS next or ECNL.
-The focus will be on the development of the complete player for when it matters in their college soccer pathway. Players and families will be educated on and assisted with “the process” of college recruitment. What is truly best for the player and not the club or its reputation.
-The top 2 teams(academy) will compete in USYS South Atlantic Region Division 1 for league play. The program will train and compete from November through June each year, allowing players to play in high school and enjoy that experience. The teams will compete in 6 showcase tournaments throughout the year and the Maryland State Cup. Showcases will be local as well as travel to the Philadelphia, Richmond, and Raleigh areas to compete for the 2023-2024 year. We will have additional teams both at Severna Park and Total Futbol that will compete at lower levels. Those teams will be less costly and offer some flexibility around other commitments but still provide a competitive soccer environment.
