Our men’s team competes in the Deep South Division of the United States League Two (USL2). The division consists of clubs from North and South Carolina as well as Georgia competing in a league format between May-July.
“Who plays in the squad?”
Each summer our roster is made up of players from across different states and colleges. We are happy to take players from any stage of college education.
“Where do the players live?”
Our players spend three months in Charlotte living with host families who graciously offer their homes to accommodate each member of our roster. This gives each person the opportunity of learning more about the culture of the area from a family perspective as well as being able to share their own.
“What does a summer in Charlotte look like?”
Throughout the season we strive to compete at a high level and that starts on the training field. The heat and humidity can get pretty intense here so be prepared to work hard during the afternoons. Our coaches are dedicated to each player to improve team chemistry as well as fitness during the college off-season. In addition to training, each player has access to one of our partner gyms for any extra sessions they want to complete either with the team or on their own.
“Where are your matches played?”
Our home matches are played at the stadium at Matthews Sportsplex, which is located on the same site as our training field.
“What makes the Charlotte Eagles USL2 squad unique?”
Our players do a lot more than just play soccer during their time at the club. We believe this is a time for each person to grow spiritually within our ministry environment. During the first weeks of the season our players participate in sports ministry training as part of their induction. There are also opportunities to coach the next generation of Eagles talent at our youth camps that run throughout the summer.
“How do I get involved?”
You can register your interest by emailing our head USL2 coach Garrett Bireline and he can let you know how to come and experience a summer with the Charlotte Eagles for yourself!
