Frequently Asked Questions - Academy and Select Soccer

What is AFU Pike Academy and Select Soccer? 
AFU Pike is a program offered through Pike Soccer, Inc. for those parents and players who want an accelerated and more challenging soccer development program (i.e., Travel Soccer) AFU Pike teams participate in Georgia Soccer/US Club Soccer Academy programs. AFU Pike teams are formed mostly by same age groups only and train more frequently and longer than recreational teams. Players must try out for a spot in an age group and the costs to participate are higher than that of a recreational program.
