How is BG Elite FC different from other local programs?
BG Elite is the best of the best in the area. We don't just say we develop next level players, we PROVE it! The club is proud to have a handful of our players associated with several professional organizations such as Louisville City, Nashville SC, regional leagues including the Great Lakes Conference, and high-level youth programs like the Olympic Development Program.
As we have just finished our first year as a club we are already excited to announce that we have had 3 of our players sign with Nashville SC's Youth Academy teams, 1 player sign with FC Cincinnati's Youth Academy team, 3 players sign with Louisville City FC's Youth Academy teams, AND 1 player sign a Pro-contract with Louisville City FC's first team! We will continue to provide these great opportunities for talented players within our club!
