Focused on building the safest soccer club
Becoming the reference in the U.S.

OUR MISSION

Soccer and health matter. We are rewriting the playbook.

As a reputable leader in the youth soccer landscape, Paris Saint-Germain Academy’s world-class player development program is recognized around the world for its proven ability to identify and develop players, in a safe and nurturing professional environment. Today, we are rewriting the playbook, with the health and safety of our players guiding all of our movements. We are playmakers, proactive in executing actions that allow our players to excel. We ensure our players gain an excellent understanding of the game, while also becoming knowledgeable about how to best take care of their health and well-being. Now, more than ever, we are dedicated to providing the safest environment for our soccer community on and off the field, to ensure our players are in the best position to succeed.

OUR VISION

Your health and safety are the foundation for everything we do.

The playing field has changed.

The soccer landscape will not be the same as it was before, at least for a while, but the evidence is clear: physical activity benefits everyone. Health experts recognize the role of outdoor recreation and exercise in promoting physical fitness, mental health, and cognitive development, improving overall health.

We, at Paris Saint-Germain Academy USA, are rewriting the playbook where the health, safety and well-being of our community are of utmost importance. A greater priority than ever before, we took the responsibility of leading the efforts and being proactive and we continue to make investments and actions that put our players in the safest environment.

We aim at becoming the reference in the U.S., amongst youth soccer clubs, providing solid guidelines, protocols, measures, and procedures that ensure our community’s health, safety, and well-being. 

We are striving to make a significant impact in all areas of the game and life, as we return to play.
