Our Advanced Player Academy (APA) is a program that gives our most gifted players in specific age groups the chance to travel out of state and compete in various Showcase Tournaments.
Within this program, we combine age groups when necessary; ensuring the most talented selection of players are able to combine and play together. APA teams train once per week as a team, led by licensed Trebol staff. All tournaments are played in the off-season, ensuring there are no conflicts between APA and regular Trebol competitive teams. With the program getting underway in 2017, it is still fairly new. We plan on increasing APA exposure in the near future with potential international tournaments. Whether you are an APA player with ambitions of playing in college, or a player who already has other plans after club soccer, we want to give you the best experience possible during your time with us. This experience goes above purely soccer; with everything else added into the equation on a team trip!
All APA activities will fall outside of a player’s team events. Players accepting positions in the APA are not permitted to miss ANY of their team events. In other words, players will be 100% invested in their own teams by attending all games and practices. Participation in the APA MUST NOT detract from their own team.
Scholarship players are eligible for enrollment within this program.
The Technical Staff Committee has the sole right to accept or decline enrollees into the program and may make changes to the group at any time.
Trebol is interested in developing the entirety of a person – not just the soccer part.

The purpose of the Advanced Player Academy is to provide exceptional development opportunities to those advanced players that may not be getting challenged enough on their own team in league play and are looking for chances to compete at a high level. The program provides an outlet for our top players to expand their scope of learning while being pushed in the most competitive environment we can manufacture. The program also serves to remind the players of the responsibilities of the more gifted – to give back, to help grow and develop our game in our community, and to set an example to teammates and peers.
