Academy Overview 

What is the US Soccer Development Academy?

Following a comprehensive review of elite player development in the United States and around the world, US Soccer created the Development Academy in 2007, for boys, to improve the everyday environment for the elite youth player.

The Development Academy is a partnership between US Soccer and the top youth clubs around the country aiming to provide the best youth players in the United States with an every day environment designed to produce the next generation of National Team players. The Academy’s programming philosophy is based on increased training days, less total games, and more meaningful games.

The Academy also connects National Team coaches directly with the Academy clubs to develop and identify players and coaches for future Youth National Teams. Each Academy team is evaluated by a member of the Men’s Scouting Network at least ten times each year and each Academy club receives two formal evaluations in over 100 categories each year from the US Soccer Technical Staff.
