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.


GPS Pre-ID Program

The GPS Pre Bayern ID program is the first step in our Elite Player Pathway (EPP) and is aimed at players born in the 2009 and 2008 age groups. The program is designed to provide supplemental training and games to selected players based on performance, attitude and current stage of their development.

The program provides like minded competitive players the opportunity to train and compete outside of their current club responsibilities. The first step in our Elite Player Pathway (EPP) provides the perfect platform for players looking to maximize their development in their pursuit of excellence. 


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 National Team (U13 - U18)

The GPS  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 GPS National Team Camp, from where the final GPS National Team roster is determined.
