The Charlotte Independence Soccer Club offers a Youth Academy option for each region of our club to service our wide-ranging area. Each location offers its own Youth Academy. If you have any questions about your specific location's Youth Academy please reach out to John Tart at johnt@independencesoccer.club

Program Overview

Our Youth Academy Player Development Philosophy will be structured around creating confident, brave, creative, problem-solving players, focusing on individual player improvement, maximizing technical ability, ball mastery, and game-related decision making, inside small-sided game environments.

All players will be encouraged to enjoy a love for the game of soccer through a fun, safe and active soccer experience, allowing players to drive their own development in an environment focused on player growth and development, over winning. Our Youth Academy development curriculum will center on creating a culture of excellence early in our players, maintaining high standards for hard work, respect, and teamwork. Teams in the Youth Academy may play other club’s academy teams in friendly type events or play in league play depending on the age group within the Academy.
