Alabama FC/BUSA is home to the largest Competitive Program in the state of Alabama. Our Competitive Program starts with the U12 age group and continues through a player’s U19 season. Each Competitive team plays within the Alabama Soccer Association State League. These teams have the opportunity to play Division 1 or Division 2 soccer with the state league and compete for Alabama State Championships for the opportunity to attend USYS Regional Championships each June.
Our Competitive teams practice 2-3 times per week and are coached by the highest credentialed and licensed coaches in Alabama. Our Competitive teams also receive specific Goalkeeping, Speed/Agility and Injury Prevention sessions during the season. All teams also have the opportunity to attend several tournaments each season, and the older age groups have the opportunity to attend showcase events for college exposure.
