Academy

THROUGH OUR GREENVILLE BLUES F.C. PROGRAM WE OFFER COMPETITIVE LEVEL TRAINING & PLAYING OPPORTUNITIES FOR PLAYERS IN THE U7 THROUGH U12 AGE GROUPS.

If your child has not previously participated in our Academy program by training or playing with a Greenville Blues F.C. team and would be interested in doing so, please contact Alex Oglesby, GYSA President, by texting 662-820-9380 or emailing president@gysams.org for more information.

GYSA’s Academy program officially kicked off on November 30, 2016, with a small group of players and coaches who were looking for more than what our traditional Recreational program could offer. Our first two seasons saw our "Greenville Blues" and "Delta Kickers" teams making great strides and competing at various tournaments across our state and region.  In our third season, 2018-2019, the program consolidated all teams under the "Greenville Blues F.C." umbrella, and our players found success winning or placing second in a number of events.

The Academy program at GYSA continues to grow through the support of many dedicated volunteers and sponsors, and we are looking forward to several new & exciting opportunities to offer our players for in the 2019-2020 season.


Since January 2017, our competitive teams have participated in a number of tournaments in Mississippi, Arkansas, & Louisiana.  Several of our Greenville Blues players have also participated in Mississippi's Olympic Development Program (ODP) and have represented our club well at the state level, training and competing with players from all across the state and region in a highly competitive environment.
