Clarksville Soccer Club Player Development Pathway


CSC Player Development Program (PDP), (formerly known as the development academy) is offered for U4-U10 age groups as a once weekly skill development program for individual players. This program is offered Fall, Winter and Spring, for 6 weeks increments.  Any skill level can register at any time for this program.  We also offer a Parent N Tot Program during select seasons. 
Players can be evaluated through our PDP program for selection to our  Pre-Academy (U7) and Academy Teams (U8-U10)

  • PRE-ACADEMY PROGRAM:   Interested U7 players can be evaluated for our U7 pre-academy program which is a head start into our academy team program which begins at U8.   At U7 players are too young to play on "competitive/travel" teams as per TSSA soccer rules. The TN soccer association mandates that youngest age of players that can play competitive/travel soccer against outside opponents for the 2022-23 season is 2015 birth year.    The pre-academy offers two training sessions per week for the 10 month season (August-May).    Evaluations are ongoing throughout the year and players can be placed in the pre-academy at any time during the season.    We also include pre-academy game days which are scheduled 2-3 dates per month where the players gain game experience playing 4v4 up to 7v7.   
  • ACADEMY  U8 TEAMS (Player Pools) :  This is the first step into the competitive/travel team phases of the Clarksville Soccer Club.   Our U8 program player development plan includes team practices two days per week and scheduled  Academy Game days 2-3 dates per month, typically on Saturday mornings at Life Point Field.   The season is August-May.    U8 Academy Game Dates are primarily internal game day experiences (CSC v. CSC); however we do consider providing some outside competition experience to our U8 pool if the players demonstrate competitive readiness.   Our decision to play outside competition for the U8 age group depends on finding equitable competition to provide the right player development experiences for our players, while keeping travel and costs at a minimum.   Refer to the CSC Player Development Pathway model for the flow of player progression through our programs. Competitive teams have different program fees and different time commitments than the Player Development Program.   
  • ACADEMY  U9-U10 TEAMS (Player Pools) :   The season is August-May. Training is 2 nights per week.  Travel is typically 2-3 weekend's per month.  These teams play games against outside competition by way of friendly games with opposing clubs, JDL (Junior Development League) Games and Tournament Play.   Travel mostly is within the Nashville and surrounding areas (typically within 60 miles of Clarksville) but these age groups also may participate in tournament play that may be outside this area.   We do try to keep travel time and costs down for these age groups so these further away travel experiences are limited each season by age group.    Refer to the CSC Player Development Pathway model for the flow of player progression through our programs. Competitive teams have different program fees and different time commitments than the Player Development Program.   The Academy Teams have a 10 month season (Aug-May).
