ABOUT FC TUCSON’S PRO ACADEMY
Launched in October 2020, the FC Tucson ULS 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.
FC Tucson ULS Academy players compete in the newly developed USL Academy League, a regionalized competition which began in 2021 and provides elite youth talent from across the USL landscape an additional opportunity to compete at a high level. In addition to the USL Academy League, USL coordinate the USL Academy Cup – a competition designed to bring together top youth prospects from all of our markets with USL clubs, all centered around identifying and developing players with the potential to reach the professional level.
Our experienced, first-team staff will create the primary coaching curriculum and provide first-team training staff members for the FC Tucson ULS 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 ULS 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.
