The Youth Academy Phase is designed for the young player looking to develop his or her skills and start playing soccer in a fun and challenging developmental environment.

The main focus of our Academy is to provide players with a platform to develop their skills and prepare them for competitive soccer, should they wish to pursue this path.

Academy players will play their games in a festival setting where the development of the player is always the priority. There are no scores kept and no league tables, so the emphasis is on fun and technical development.

Players will have 2 practice sessions per week and play in 5 academy festivals per season.

From season 2020-21, the Carolina Velocity FC Academy will operate out of three locations. Each location will receive the same professional coaching and adhere to the same philosophy. Each location will be overseen by Academy Director, James Scott.
