BUILDING EXPERTISE AND FINDING INDIVIDUAL MASTERY OF THE GAME
Be part of a team at the highest level of play. We work to create collegiate level opportunities for every player.
The FCU Academy Program consists of two teams per age group: a Pre-DA and a Development Academy. These players have the same purpose, mission and culture and will work to fine tune their skills to reach the next level of soccer in the United States. The Pre-DA team is for dedicated, motivated players who are aspiring to be a DA player. The DA team plays under a US Soccer Federation supported curriculum. The Development Academy team participates in the US Soccer Federation league.
This level of programming is focused on the committed soccer player. All Pre-Academy teams follow the guidelines and curriculum set forth by US Soccer and work in conjunction with our Development Academy (DA) teams and coaches to ensure a consistent methodology is provided throughout the program. FCU Pre-Academy players come from all over the Chicagoland area in order to train and compete every day with other top-level players. Whatever their goals, the Pre-Academy program offers top-level players opportunities to develop within the framework of the DA.
