Homegrown Soccer Academy was founded by three former college teammates who all share a passion for the game. Each one went on to graduate from UMBC and play soccer professionally after having successful college careers.

We believe that top coaches help develop top players. That's why we maintain an exclusive staff of premier coaches. All of our coaches have excelled in their own careers and have gone through the same development process that each youth player is going through now. They understand what it takes to make it to the top and they're prepared to help the next generation of players get there. We will develop each player's technical abilities, tactical awareness, physical capacity and leadership skills as each of these things are important in becoming a complete player.


Our aim is to provide elite supplemental training opportunities for players.  We are committed to having low player-to-coach ratios at our programs to guarantee that each player is receiving optimal instruction and attention from our talented staff. The environment that our coaches create in each program is designed to engage, challenge, and reward every player for their hard work while having fun. Every player is different, but every player has room to improve!
