Player Pathways

City SC offers a unique and seamless player pathway. We are one of the only clubs in the nation that is structured to allow a player to progress from their first U6 recreational experience to a top level U19 Academy player en route to college or international play, all under one program.


The Girls Academy Player Development program is a highly sophisticated and structured model geared towards the most talented players aspiring to compete at the highest level. One of the founding principles of the Girls Academy is creating a better training environment. This is achieved through a commitment to minimum of 3 days/week of on-field training over the course of a 10 month season. This schedule allows for coaches to cover a vast amount of technical and tactical topics in great detail.  Players are allowed to participate in high school soccer.


City SC has a long established tradition of developing elite level players and preparing them to compete at the highest levels in college and beyond. As a founding member of the MLS NEXT Boys Academy League, we offer players access to the best coaching, resources and competition in the US.
