Program Overview

At the Charlotte Independence our goal is to promote and develop the game of soccer for all levels of play. Our recreation program is an introductory level platform, focusing on the fundamentals of the game, fostering a love of the sport in a safe and enjoyable environment. Recreational programs compete in a local league with little to no travel needed to compete.

Pathway & Benefits

Recreation soccer is the first step along The Independence Player Pathway, where our players can enjoy their experience, while also allowing themselves to compete and develop, identifying themselves as Charlotte independence players in their own communities. As the first step along the pathway, we hope this step bridges the gap to our Youth Academy, Competitive Programs, and eventually our National Programs.
