Carolina FC Super Y Program General Information

Join Carolina FC during the Super Y summer season to:

1 - Stay sharp and improve your skills.

2 - Get a different coaching perspective to help further develop your child

3 - Get summer long training and quality matches for less than the price of a 4-day overnight camp filled with unrealistic hours and incredible strain on the body. 

4 - Be identified by the ODP regional scouting. This gives players a chance to be recognized and invited down to the Super Y ODP event in Lake City, FL. Players are seen in their natural competitive environment as opposed to the traditional tryout format.

Why Super Y?
Development is about playing top-level soccer 12 months a year and playing in challenging environments where the mind has to adapt. Players will have the opportunity to play with and against top players around the region. The unique ODP player id model is great for those players that don’t do well in the typical tryout format. It allows the players a chance to be seen and handpicked by scouts and opposing coaches for Super Y ODP regional and national events. This experience comes with college and national team exposure. Top Drawer Soccer hosts Super Y ODP regionals where college coaches rank players for college scouts.

Schedule
The regular season will consist of 8-10 matches depending on the playing division and age group. The total point leader within the division will culminate the season with the Super Y-League North American Finals, which will consist of a minimum of four games at the IMG Academy in Bradenton FL held in December.

Training (at Carolina FC)
Caoches will decide what days teams will train. Sessions that are postponed due to weather will be rescheduled.

Season Dates
Training will begin in late April/May. Matches will be played from late May through July. We will avoid most major events such as State Cup, ODP camps etc. The Super Y-League North American Finals will be held in mid-December in Bradenton, FL at the IMG Academy.
