About Elite Academy League
SHOWCASING ON A NATIONAL PLATFORM - FASC is proud to announce that they will be joining the Elite Academy League along with many of the top clubs in the area.
The Elite Academy League has a mission to provide a national platform with a standards based league giving clubs the ability to provide full developmental model and pathway with top competition and exposure. FASC will officially be part of the Southwest Conference starting in 2023.
Elite Competition, Elite Development
“The Elite Academy League is an up-and-coming boys development league that launched in the 2020-21 season. With a few exceptions, the vast majority of the founding clubs all also field teams at a higher level of competition, primarily the MLS NEXT.
“This mixture of high-level clubs in addition to up-and-coming clubs will help the Elite Academy pursue their ultimate goal: “to offer [a] top National Platform to provide Elite clubs with a standards based league to produce better clubs, better coaches, better players, and offer [a] better game day environment.”
“For clubs that already have MLS NEXT teams, it provides another pathway for players and coaches within the organization to compete with a similar competition structure and exposure level to that of their top team. For the organizations that plan to play their top teams at the Elite Academy level, it’s an opportunity to prove their club’s worth on a National level while helping the players in their organization get more opportunities to get in front of college coaches in ways not possible by more geographically-restricted leagues.” - soccerwire.com
