Experience the Future of Youth Soccer: CSF's School Academy



Discover the most progressive and innovative youth soccer program in the area - Charlotte Soccer Factory's School Academy! Our Academy is dedicated to developing skilled, confident, and goal-scoring players who share a deep love for the game of soccer. With a fun and challenging curriculum, we offer a variety of engaging activities to keep young players enthusiastic and on their toes!

Building Confident Leaders On and Off the Pitch:
At CSF's School Academy, our main focus is to nurture creative and confident leaders on and off the pitch. Our group training sessions are designed to build confidence and improve technical skills, such as dribbling (ball mastery), shooting, and passing. With a dynamic and creative environment, our players thrive and maximize their development under the guidance of our expert coaching staff.

A Coaching Team You Can Trust:
Led by School Academy Director Tim Tretbar, a former collegiate goalkeeper from Queens University who played his youth soccer in Germany.  Tim is supported by CSF founders Coach Casey Carr and Adam Brundle. Carr with over 20 years of coaching experience for both boys and girls in Charlotte, including a previous title as Girls Coach of the Year while coaching at Charlotte United (now Charlotte Soccer Academy), our coaching team is second to none. Alongside Casey, Adam Brundle, a former Division I standout at Winthrop University and Norwich City Youth player, brings his expertise to further enhance our players' growth. Together with our dedicated team, we create a nurturing environment that prioritizes learning and consistent player development.

Empowering Risk-Taking and Skill Development:
At CSF, we foster a no guilt, no blame, no shame environment, encouraging players to take risks and try new skills without fear of judgment. This approach empowers our young athletes to explore their potential and become well-rounded players. We believe that developing character through the game of soccer is as important as building soccer skills.
