About the US Soccer Development Academy

The Development Academy is a partnership between U.S. Soccer and the top youth clubs around the country to provide the best youth players in the U.S. with an environment designed to produce the next generation of National Team players. The Academy’s programming philosophy of increased training, fewer total games and more competitive games is based on U.S. Soccer’s Best Practices for the U-17 U.S. National Team Residency program.

The Academy also connects National Team coaches directly with the Academy member clubs to develop and identify players and coaches for future Youth National Teams. Each Academy team is evaluated by a National Team coach at least ten times each year and each Academy club receives two formal evaluations in over 100 categories each year from National Team staff.
