Being a US Club Soccer affiliate member does your soccer calendar differ from other clubs?
Being a US Club Soccer affiliate member allows us to have a longer season than some other clubs. Our competitive program runs from July- May. Programs for our non-competitive teams differ. You will be able to read more about each program under the Youth Academy tab.
How do I join Carolina Velocity?
All players wanting to join Carolina Velocity will attend a tryout before being placed on a team. Players can join during the season but will need to be assessed by a Carolina Velocity coach prior to signing up. This applies for all age-groups.

How often do teams practice?
All our competitive teams will practice three times a week with their team coach. All coaches are professional UEFA licensed coaches. All coaches are overseen by a Director of Soccer. Our younger players who participate in the Academy program will practice twice a week.

What is the philosophy behind the coaching at Carolina Velocity?
A: All coaches adhere to the Carolina Velocity Philosophy. Coaches attend weekly Coach Education sessions led by Director of Soccer, Andy Thompson.
