The FC Cincinnati Discovery Program is the start of the elite player development pathway. The free-to-play developmental programming will be offered to high performing players in the 2009 & 2010 age groups. Players will be invited in to participate in the weekly program while staying registered with their club team and continue to represent his club in their respective practices and games.
The FCC Discovery Program is designed to build relationships with local clubs, enhance player development in the region and help players understand the quality, skill and attributes needed to earn a place at an MLS academy. The program will also be used as a coaching education tool for local youth coaches to come out and become ingrained in our system, by being involved in actually running the training sessions with our Academy staff and sharing idea.
The Discovery program played a vital part in building the current U13 & U14 Pre-Academy squads and will once again be one part of developing and monitoring young players with the aspiration to progress them into the Pre Academy teams.
