SBSC’s Central Coast Academy, members of the DPL league, was formed in 2020 to address the growing need for our club to provide an elite playing platform for the talented girls side of our club. With the new league and strategic partnership with Kickers SC we have the premier platform for elite girls soccer ages 2010 through 2004 to compete at the highest level in the central coast.
Through a holistic approach to player development, The Santa Barbara SC Academy Staff are committed to developing each and every player and person to their maximum potential. Santa Barbara SC has helped develop and produce talented, hard-working and committed players that have gone on to play for the Elite NCAA Division 1 Programs, MLS Professional Teams and represented our country at the US Youth National Teams levels.
Major League Soccer announced Santa Barbara SC as a founding member of a new Elite Youth Development Platform intended to provide year-round high-level matches for MLS club academy teams and non-MLS academy (Santa Barbara SC) teams. We will achieve high standards for elite youth players on the Central coast to allow athletes to achieve their full potential.
