Why you should take a Gap Year
Physically & Mentally Mature
Sometimes a College Career may not be working out how you'd like, so taking a Gap Year in a different environment can help develop you as a player and person.
Improve Soccer Resume
Trying to play at the next level, whether that's in College or in the Pro game, is difficult to stand out, so playing at an academy like our Gap Year Soccer option can make you look different from the rest.
Experience a new country
Getting to travel and experience a new country, meeting new friends, and contacts, can have life long positive effects. Even learning a new language on the way if you wanted.
Be seen by Pro Clubs in Spain
When you play in a different country, you are open to a whole new market. Our partner academy regularly play professional teams, and are very well connected with them.
Maintain NCAA NAIA eligibility
By playing at the academy and taking some time away from your NCAA, NAIA or NJCAA team, you will maintain your College eligibility to return back to the USA after your time with us.
