The Academy is a terrific opportunity for players from a variety of different athletic, academic and social backgrounds. There are currently players from all over the world including Brazil, England, Africa, St. Kitts, Canada, Argentina and Scotland. Whether student athletes are looking to improve their English in order to eventually be college ready in the United States, work towards their college degree, or simply be part of the New York experience, the Academy brings it all together with excellent soccer training and terrific soccer culture.
Every year numerous college coaches come to watch the academy to scout for talent. Many of the academy players do move on to NCAA Division I, II, III and NAIA programs. Players who do very well in the classroom at Monroe are often eligible for academic scholarships at the next college. The academy does have players who are in our Master’s Degree program as well.
