Chargers SC Development Academy
Player Applications: Read below & complete/send an age appropriate form (links below)
Chargers SC has a long history of over 30 years as one of the elite boy’s programs in the country. As the 7th overall Club selected in the inaugural year of the Development Academy, Chargers SC has continued to thrive within the Development Academy producing many National Team, Professional and top Collegiate Players.
As the only Full U.S. Development Academy club in the Tampa Bay Area, having D.A. teams in ages 12, 13, 14, 15, 16-17 and 18-19, we are focused on creating an environment that promotes the development of U.S. National Team players from the ages 12-19. We have been very successful in this goal and continue to produce many players that have reached the National Team and Professional ranks.
Chargers SC prides itself on providing the ideal elite environment to push players to reach their goals on and off the field. Chargers SC has a close affiliation with AS Roma of the Serie A in Italy, to provide our top players exposure and a pathway to become part of a top club in the world. This Affiliation serves to push our environment to even higher standards, using the training methodology that is used by a top 10 team in the world in AS Roma within our Academy, while also allowing AS Roma scouts to interact with our players heavily. Just in the 2016-2017 season alone, 9 Charger players were selected to train side by side with the AS Roma first team and train with the AS Roma Academy teams in Rome, Italy.
We are searching for the next great generation of players that are committed to becoming elite players and will follow in the footsteps of Charger Development Academy players such as Jeff Attinella, of the Portland Timbers, Zach MacMath, started in the MLS semi-finals this year with the Colorado Rapids, Mason Judge, current Chargers DA player on the 2002 U.S. National Team, and many others.
If you feel that you have elite potential as a player and want to be exposed to the top level of soccer in the nation, then the Development Academy is for you. Our Charger SC Development Academy scouts are currently evaluating players for the 2017-2018 season in the age groups ranging from Birth Years 1999-2007s.
