The Charlotte Independence Soccer Club offers a Pre- Academy Program as a pre-cursor to our Pro Academy which is the highest level of play for our boys here at the club. If you have any questions about this program, please contact John Tart at

Program Overview

The program is designed to provide a specific focus for the top players in these age groups so they train locally.  The development principles of the Pro Academy, BECNL and BENCL Futures are introduced to these age groups.  The success of these players will lead them to appropriate development and success in the national programs. This is the top tier for boys aged U11 and U12 in the club for where the players are at this time. Teams play other Pre-Academy's as well as compete in tournaments
