Welcome to Carolina Core FC Academy
A groundbreaking initiative that is set to revolutionize youth soccer development in our region. CCFC Academy is launching with the MLS NEXT league for the 2024 season starting with two teams - U13 and U14. We are proud to announce our Academy will be a fully funded program for players, which aims to break down the financial barriers typically associated with high-level youth soccer and provide young players with an unprecedented opportunity to pursue their dreams.
Operated under the Carolina Core Soccer Foundation, the Carolina Core FC Academy is committed to creating a level playing field where every child, regardless of their socioeconomic background, can chase their aspirations of a professional soccer career. Our academy's revolutionary approach eliminates the pay-to-play model, ensuring that talent and potential, rather than financial means, become the primary factors in a player's journey. With an estimated cost of over $20,000 per player annually, this opportunity enables young athletes to compete against the best in the country, fostering their skills and exposing them to unparalleled opportunities for growth and development.
