WE ARE YOUTH DEVELOPMENT THROUGH SPORT
Pathfinder FC is proud to offer a non-pay-to-play program, enabling the finest football talent from all backgrounds to develop. There is NO COST to our football program, other than incidental fees for registration and kits. If you need housing, academic programming, or if you join us for the pro-scouting trip to Spain, there are fees.
At Pathfinder FC, we develop youth by teaching that hard work should be held in the highest regard. Our goal is to develop players to the top of their potential, while helping them navigate the pathway of life. We teach them the value of discipline, the importance of education, what it means to be a leader and what it means to be a member of a team. All of this is tied together through scholarship, respect for others, sportsmanship and sacrifice.
Pathfinder FC combines the highest level coaching, professional facilities and natural settings to provide a one-of-a-kind football program in the United States. Based in the Hudson Valley, the program provides players from nine to adult with merit based opportunity, furtherance, and fellowship.
Pathfinder, our name is our story. Join the pack… find your path. Vamos Lobos!
Our teams compete year-round searching for the most challenging competitions including the top football and futsal leagues, national futsal championship series, and multiple football tournaments per year. Our teams train up to five times per week in fall and spring.
NON-PAY-TO-PLAY PRO & NCAA PATHWAY ACADEMY
In our Academy program, players pursue genuine opportunities in the the United States and Europe. The full-time residential program is supported by top coaches and staff, at state-of-the-art facilities.
Our goal for young players: we want to provide senior team opportunities to academy players. Top USLA players that can also play for the senior team on USL2. This way they have the opportunity to promote, train and compete at the top level of the game. USL2/USLA season can culminate with professional trials in Spain. An example cycle: start April and play USLA / USL2 through December, go to Spain for pro trials Jan - April.
To allow players to join our program full-time we provide academic programming, and residential services. Our Academic program is fully accredited, and NCAA compliant. University students maintain amateur status and lose no NCAA eligibility. Our students are molded to understand the importance of education above all. Students are given opportunities to build experience to craft a college application of a well-rounded scholar.

"I have truly been blown away with is the quality of the program that has been put together, and the dedication to the details that has been put into place to ensure that the players have the best opportunity to reach their goals. I made a point of carefully watching the first few practices my son participated in and the work rate and
quality of the drills were by far the best he had ever participated in.
Simply put the staff are the hardest working I have ever met and there passion for the program and the sport is obvious by their daily actions and details. I believe this is the best organization because it provides clear opportunities and pathways for my son to reach his goals and dreams."
