CFCA rec partners holding fall signups

By Staff , 08/04/18, 10:45AM EDT


Chattanooga FC Academy is proud to be associated with four well-established recreation programs in the area. Nearly every select soccer player in this region played their first soccer game at one of these associations. CFCA endorses all four and looks forward to serving your family in one of our Local Select or Travel Select environment in the future.

The information below is an abbreviated version of each program and listed in alphabetical order. We encourage you to visit each organization's site to determine which program works best for your young player. If rec soccer is not for you, CFC Academy offers an Identification & Development Program for advanced players beginning with kids born in 2011, 2012, and some 2013.
