Pathway to Elite Soccer
SFS are not affiliated to one club so the pathway for our Gap Year players means we can send to ANY club that is interested in one of our players.
Our league program has a vast scouting system allowing you to be seen in home and away matches and our coaches have contacts across the leagues so if you are performing well enough we want you to progress higher.
