Launched in October 2020, the FC Tucson Pro Academy Player is a professional training environment dedicated to nurturing players who have a strong enthusiasm for the game and are committed to improvement in a professional environment.
Our experienced, first-team staff will create the primary coaching curriculum and provide first-team training staff members for the FC Tucson Pro Academy Team. Through this system, academy players will have direct exposure to the professional pathway while being provided the best available opportunities.
FC Tucson will continue its commitment to working in cooperation with the entire Southern Arizona youth soccer community through the FC Tucson Pro Academy, by way of the USL Academy. First-team coaches and players will work to provide clinics and tryouts free of charge to underserved and financially challenged players across the Southern Arizona region.
