College and amateur
Brovsky played youth soccer for Colorado Rush with whom he won many state and national titles. He went to Green Mountain High School where he played both soccer and football as well as basketball. Brovsky then played for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish for four years and was one of the top players in the Big East Conference.
Brovsky was drafted first in the second round (19th overall) in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft by Vancouver Whitecaps FC. He signed with Vancouver on March 15, 2011, and made his professional debut on April 10, 2011 in a game against Houston Dynamo.
On June 12, 2014 New York City FC, who did not begin play until the 2015 MLS season, traded a second-round 2016 MLS SuperDraft pick to Montreal for Brovsky, making him their second signing. Four weeks later, the New York club sent him on loan to Strømsgodset in Norway, an affiliate of NYCFC's sister club Manchester City, in order to keep him match fit for the start of the 2015 Major League Soccer season. On July 26, he got his Tippeligaen debut, when he came on as a substitute in the 76th minute in the match against Sandnes Ulf.
