This alumni list identifies and celebrates those young players who have developed and played at FC Copa Academy and who have moved on to play collegiate soccer. Through hard work, desire and commitment, these players continue to achieve their goals beyond FC Copa Academy and showcase their talents developed over the years. FC Copa Academy is very proud to have assisted these players to achieve their dreams of playing at the next level, not only through technical and tactical coaching, but also by offering guidance and support for each individual player and their family.
The FC Copa Academy alumni association is focused on keeping alumni connected with each other, connecting alumni with current players, and helping to facilitate the future academic and athletic endeavors of the current members. We are hoping to create a resource that will help former FC Copa Academy soccer players find old friends, communicate with each other, and of course reminisce on the glory days. Our aim is to keep the alumni community informed of what’s going on in the world of Copa soccer…be it special events, gatherings and alumni games. Are you interested in joining our alumni group? If you would like to be added to the alumni list, email us at 

Below is our current committed players from our 2017 Senior Class. Players on this list have been playing for FC Copa Academy for almost 10 years and are currently finishing their final academy season. We are very proud to announce our next alumni and we would like to wish all of our alumni good luck and we know they will continue to represent and make FC Copa Academy proud!
