What You Need To Know
Are You Ready for Some Competition???
Each Summer and Winter there are a variety of 3v3
format tournaments available for teams to compete in.
The 3V3 Academy has put together championship
caliber teams each year and been very competitive in
the major 3v3 tournament circuits. Check out some of
our success here.
The 3V3 Academy exists strictly for the development of
individual soccer skills for your children. Those wishing
to be competitive, have that opportunity with teams
arranged through the Academy (up to 6 children on a
team), but teams are managed and maintained by parent
volunteers once the children are matched up.
1. Uniforms — Competition team
jerseys cost $30 each, and your
child will need one Carolina blue
and one grey jersey. These can be
ordered from our Spirit Store.
2. Tournament Fees—Tournament
fees are usually between $150 and
$180 per team (divided among the
players), but can be more for
Regional and National tournaments.
3. Travel Expenses—You generally
will not incur many travel related
expenses beyond fuel, although
regional and National tournaments
may include some hotel expenses.
4. Spirit Wear—Although
completely optional, the entire
family can support the team by
sporting the latest in 3V3 Academy
fashions. Items can be ordered from
our Spirit Store.
Teams will be coached by a parent
volunteer and practice one-two
additional days a week with their
coach. Teams will also participate in
3v3 tournaments on the weekends.
Most tournaments are Saturday only
and some are both Saturday and
Sunday. Depending on the team's
level of commitment, some teams will
stay in Charlotte, others will travel.
New teams will struggle to find
success and be competitive. This
version of soccer takes time to
master. 3V3 Academy teams that are
successful have children that have
been doing this a while and are on
teams that have played together for
multiple years. You can see some of
the teams success on our
