More Information & Registration

Following a comprehensive review of elite player development in the United States and around the world, U.S. Soccer

created the Development Academy in 2007. The Academy Program's philosophy is based on increased training, less

total games, and more meaningful games using international rules of competition.

The Academy has recently expanded programming to include a Girls' Development Academy that will begin in Fall

2017. The Academy has 197 total clubs (Boys & Girls, comprised of teams across six age groups in the boys program:

U-12, U-13, U-14, U-15, U-16/17 & U-18/19 and four age groups in the girls program: U-14, U-15, U16/17 & U-18/19.

The Academy Program focuses on positively impacting everyday club environments to assist in maximizing youth

player development across the country. The Academy values individual development of elite players over winning

trophies and titles. The Academy sets the standard for elite environments for youth soccer clubs nationwide and is a

part of U.S. Soccer's global leadership position in youth soccer that will impact thousands of players.
