Charlotte Soccer Academy


Development Player League is a national program that has been established directly under the U.S. Soccer Development Academy program and includes some of the top programs around the U.S.

CSA entered into the DPL to continue the player development pathway for girls at the Elite level that still wish to play high school soccer. This opportunity gives them an additional growth platform for college exposure, better competition and a program that fits directly under our established U.S. Soccer Development Academy program.

CSA will enter the DPL with some of the best clubs in the country which include Tophat, FC Dallas, Solar, Dallas Texans, Legends, San Diego Surf, Pateadores and IMG. CSA will compete in the Southeast Division with clubs including Tophat, USA/Mount Pleasant, Weston, IMG and Florida Rush. In addition to division play, the league provides up to three showcases a year in alignment with the DA showcases which gives our players tremendous opportunity for college exposure.
