Columbus Crew SC Academy Player Recruitment

Crew SC Academy is a fully funded professional academy, overseen by Crew SC President & General Manager Tim Bezbatchenko. The purpose of our Academy is to develop professional players that embody excellent character for Columbus Crew SC of Major League Soccer.

Crew SC Academy current fields teams that participate in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy U-14, U-15, U-17, and U-19 age groups. Players identified through our scouting network are invited to trials in Columbus. We also periodically host invitation-only combines to identify players from within our market.

Please submit the information requested below to be considered for a trial or combine invitation, and it will be considered by Crew SC Academy Technical Staff. As we receive a significant amount of submissions and hold no open tryouts, you will likely only be contacted in the event you are offered a trial or combine invitation.
