Crew SC Academy is the program that provides the greatest opportunity and exposure for players to reach their highest level, and is one of the few programs in the country that is fully funded. No costs—for player fees, travel, accommodations, meals and Crew SC replica gear—are incurred by families. Players train and play at the Crew Training Facility and MAPFRE Stadium.
Crew SC Academy is a charter member of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy. Supported by the U.S. National Teams, it is the top level of competition in the country. Crew SC Academy is the only member of the Development Academy in Central Ohio, and is the top boy’s level in Ohio.
