GIRLS

The USL Academy for our girls program will provide a clear pathway into our U23/ Reserves and a direct connection to the WPSL senior team. We are focused on providing opportunities for elite local youth soccer players to know that there is a pathway for them to achieve their dreams of becoming a professional soccer player. 

BOYS

The USL-Academy boys program will provide a clear pathway to being a professional player with a direct connection to the USL Senior team. With a seamless transition from youth to pro, through our programming, there is a clear development from 13U to the 19U team and beyond.

WHY PARTICIPATE IN THE USL ACADEMY PROGRAM?

 

Players in the USL Academy receive access to elite level training and competition environments that extend beyond the field. Highly licensed coaches, personalized player development plans, nutritional assessment and support, technology integration as a training tool, academic support, and competition against other USL Academies from around the country are all part of the USL Academy model that helps to develop elite players and great young people. 
 

HOW DO I KNOW IF THE USL ACADEMY IS RIGHT FOR ME?


The USL Academy does require a significant commitment, so it isn't for everyone. The USL Academy commits players to practices and games 4-6 days a week during peak periods (Fall and Spring), and 2-3 days a week during off peak periods when their club teams aren't playing. Additionally, players should have high ambitions for themselves and their soccer futures, with the ultimate goal of earning a place with the club's WPSL or USL League Two squad and beyond (high level college/professional).
