Game Model and Curriculum
FC Dayton’s Elite teams compete in the National League Showcase Series.
These tournaments are typically out of state and involve competing against high caliber teams in front of coaches and recruiters from Division 1, 2 and 3 schools.
These tournaments provide a competitive and challenging environment that is most similar to the level faced playing for a university team and as such are invaluable preparation for players with collegiate aspirations.
A high level of inter-regional competition that is available to players and teams in Ohio, is the Great Lakes Conference (GLC).
GLC is an inter-regional league that sees the strongest teams in Ohio compete in league play against teams in the surrounding states.
To gain entry to GLC, teams must perform exceptionally well in the highest level of Ohio Soccer’s State League (OSSL) and by performing well in GLC, teams may be invited to attend the National Showcase Series events.
GLC starts for players from U13 and up.
Ohio Soccer State League is the standard for all clubs that consider themselves Elite in the state of Ohio.
Nowadays, the State League encompasses teams from the whole of Ohio, bringing together under one competition what used to be known as Ohio North and Ohio South.
Ohio Soccer State League is the minimum level of play required for a team to begin its journey into GLC and the National Showcase Series and begins for players from U12 and up.
The State Cup brings together the highest quality teams in Ohio in a knock-out style cup competition, to decide who will be crowned the State Champion towards the end of the regular season.
It is also the official qualifying competition in Ohio for the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series (NCS), sending the champions to Midwest Regionals.
Should teams become regional champions, they are then qualified to participate in the National Championships.
The State Cup starts from U11 and up.
Buckeye Premier Youth Soccer League provides FC Dayton’s High School players with a competitive in-state environment without the additional pressure of over-night stays.
Players in this league receive the same quality coaching, the same amount of coaching and the same level of respect from FC Dayton but the environment is more relaxed.
