Charlotte Soccer Academy Announces Coaching Staff for Launch of USYS National League Elite 64


CSA is excited to announce its coaching staff for the USYS National League Elite 64 (Elite 64) teams for the upcoming season.

As was announced several weeks ago, Charlotte Soccer Academy is one of 64 clubs across the country that has been selected to join a new national platform created by US Youth Soccer which kicks off its inaugural season this fall. CSA is one of two clubs in the Carolinas, the other being North Carolina FC, participating in this new league. The league is designed to be an add-on program with year-round competition for boys’ and girls’ teams in six age divisions from 13U to 18/19U.

“I am excited about adding this platform to our already highly competitive levels that we provide here at Charlotte Soccer Academy, and I look forward to incorporating the entire club into this program,” states Brad Wylde, Executive Director. “Teams competing in the Elite 64 will draw players from all CSA sections and programs. Elite 64 will provide these players opportunities to participate in extra games against some of the best teams in the country in both league play and showcases.”
CSA teams will compete in the Elite 64 Southeast groups beginning with the first planned play date weekend in September. Joining CSA in the girls’ Southeast group will be North Carolina FC (NC), United Futbol Academy (GA), Atlanta Fire United (GA), Orlando City - Lake Nona (FL) and Team Boca (FL). In the boys’ Southeast group, CSA will compete against North Carolina FC (NC), United Futbol Academy (GA), AFC Lightning (GA), Concorde Fire (GA), South Soccer Academy (GA), IMG Academy (FL), Orlando City - Seminole (GA), and Jacksonville FC (FL).

For each Elite 64 play date weekend, the coaching staff will select squads of 18-20 players from all CSA sections and levels based on their performance with their primary team. The squad can change, and players can be added or removed throughout the year allowing more players the opportunity to experience this platform. In addition to league games and showcases during the year, a National Championship will be held for the top league teams next summer. As the elite club-based platform in the USYS National League, Elite 64 clubs have access to other USYS and National League competitions, such as the National League Conferences and National League P.R.O., to create a complete developmental pathway within USYS. For more information on the Elite 64, please visit https://www.usysnationalleague.com/elite-64/.

Elite 64 has partnered with ProScore and STATSports to provide player performance analysis tools. Players selected for games will receive a STATSports vest allowing them to track their performance over time to aid their development. This technology also allows every game to be monitored by colleges and professional clubs, becoming a recruiting tool for each player. Catey Stewart and Raymond Fraser will oversee the girls’ program and boys’ program at CSA, respectively. The following coaches have been assigned for the Elite 64 2022-2023 season.
