FC Wichita’s Academy is overseen and operated by senior club directors. The management team is dedicated to bettering the entire Wichita soccer community.

In 2015, US Soccer announced an adjustment to all youth age divisions. The new format requires players to register no younger then their true birth year. Because this change shook up current rosters around the country, FC Wichita believed it was the obvious time to introduce Wichita’s first youth soccer academy.

With the Academy being launched in the fall of 2016, local clubs have come together to fly under one Wichita flag. This historic decision allows top local players U13-U18 to be educated and trained under academy standards with access to all FC Wichita senior club resources.

In return, FC Wichita also intends to support all local premier teams to benefit the aspiring academy player.

Players who are accepted into the Academy will experience an elevated training atmosphere. FC Wichita’s commitment to improve the everyday environment for the elite youth player shines through the use of senior team players and coaches in academy sessions.

The technical ability and unity Academy players display helps to prepare them for the collegiate and professional game.
