Since 2010, Grande Sports Academy has a history of hosting the highest quality teams and athletes who compete on the highest level both domestically and internationally. Here are just a few of the accomplishments:

Signed a professional contract or have been offered a college scholarship

33 Professional signings

Players have signed for prestigious clubs like Manchester United, Liverpool & ACF Fiorentina

131 College scholarships

Players have gone on to play at universities including UCLA, Stanford, Wake Forest & Virginia

68 National Team players

Graduates have represented 14 different countries on the international stage

Although I’ve had good experiences at other residential programs, I think Grande Sports World took soccer even further for me. I train harder and more often here, all the coaches have tons of experience and knowledge, and all the players are dedicated to soccer. Here soccer isn’t just a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. - AF
