At FC United, we provide an unrivaled family and player experience. The FCU Academy Experience is fueled by the player's drive to do more, to experience more, than just expert coaching and on-field success. What makes your FCU Academy Experience one to beat is not only top facilities, most qualified coaches and multiple levels of play but all of the additional opportunities the players' experience that go beyond a traditional soccer club.

 College Recruitment Program (CRP)

The FC United Academy is proud to present the formalization of our CRP - College Recruiting Program. The DA CRP is focused on placing our athletes at the right school based on their individual aspirations, desires and goals.

As a member of the Girls' FC United  Academy, you are competing on a year-round platform which inherently gives you an advantage in both recruitment exposure and individual development. The FCU CRP is a player-driven process, with each athlete supported and guided throughout the whole recruiting process by an FCUDA College Advisor. In addition to educational seminars, players will have scheduled meetings and checkpoints as a group and with their advisors each year.

  • Seasonal Coach Calls

  • Individual Player Evaluations & Meetings
  • Seasonal What To Expect Emails
  • Director Check-ins
  • Pre-Tryout Team Meetings

VEO is a video camera and analysis software that uses artificial intelligence to film entire soccer games with the film available instantly for post-game analysis. FC United Academy teams will be using VEO technology at times throughout the year to record games and allow coaches to provide post-game or post-practice analysis to the team and to players. This is a great tool that we are so excited to be able to introduce to all Academy teams for the 2020/21 season with hopes of bringing it to all team levels in the near future.
