United States Drone Soccer

Program Type: Higher Education

Drone soccer is a thrilling indoor team sport played with radio controlled quadcopters in protective exoskeletons designed for collisions. Five player teams face off in a netted arena where they ram and block the opposing team to prevent them from scoring. But before pilots can compete they must first learn to build, program, fly, and repair high-performance drones, learning engineering skills towards exciting careers in aviation.

A Comprehensive Program for Ages 12-18+ Drone Soccer is an exciting team sport for students, but it is most importantly career skills training and workforce development! Today, the aviation industry remains male-dominated accounting for 95% of all technical careers. The FAA Advanced Aviation Advisory Committee specifically recommends our program to address gender bias in STEM fields (published in Feb, 2022). We prioritize accessibility for underserved students, and all teams must be co-ed according to our Code of Conduct.
