The Nashville SC Academy is Nashville SC’s youth player development program. As the first of its kind in the state of Tennessee, the Academy provides the highest level of elite youth soccer in the country. It provides an opportunity to for youth players to learn, grow and develop in a high-level environment, with the ultimate goal of seeing Academy players join the Nashville SC first team. Many of the players in the program are local to the Middle Tennessee area, but around 30 are from outside the area and are a part of the Residential Program, living with local host families.
There are four age groups within the NSC Academy: U13, U14, U15 and U17
The Nashville SC Academy bases its approach on The NSC Way: Resourceful, Resilient, Competitive, United, Thoughtful, Sustainable.
