Elite Player Pathway

The GPS Elite Player Pathway is a progressive program designed to provide supplemental training, competition and exposure for the most advanced players within the GPS system.  

This program evolves with the players, providing additional milestones at each age division.


School of Excellence (U9/10)


The School of Excellence brings together players from different GPS MA regions for four annual events (fall, winter, spring and summer).  Players  who are excelling in the regional teams are nominated to participate in the program which sees two-three training sessions held prior to the tournaments, all of which are local. 


FC Bayern ID Program (U11/12)

As part of FC Bayern’s commitment to the US market, the club has put structures in place to coordinate FC Bayern Player ID program across the country. 

The FC Bayern ID program fits into the Elite Player Pathway at the U11 and U12 age groups. For the 2017-18 season the FC Bayern ID program will be open for players (boys and girls) born 2006 & 2007.  All FC Bayern ID programs are coached using a curriculum provided by FC Bayern Munich.


GPS FC Bayern National Team (U13 - U18)

The GPS FC Bayern National Team Program aims to provide a professional soccer player experience to the Elite players within the GPS family.

Players successfully admitted to the program will receive the highest standard of coaching, experience additional training centers and travel as a team to prestigious tournaments and events.  Players are admitted to Regional Elite Training Centers, then selected to the National Team Camp, from where the final GPS National Team roster is determined.
