Chargers SC has approximately 90 competitive teams, a USSF Development Academy Program, three recreational programs, TOPS Soccer and an adult recreational league totaling nearly 3,000 players utilizing 50 soccer fields.

In addition to the NCAA, former Chargers can currently be found playing in MLS, European professional leagues and for U.S. National Teams.
