The USL Academy player development model, a clear path to professional soccer!
Kicking off this spring 2021, the inaugural season of the USL Academy League provides clubs in all three of the USL’s senior divisions with an elite youth development and competition platform.
The league ensures players’ exposure to a high level of competition and development, resulting from direct ties to the organization’s USL Senior Teams!
The 2020 USL Championship season has shown that young players on USL Academy contracts can break through to their local Senior Teams, demonstrating the beneﬁts of an established youth development pathway at USL clubs!
The launch of the USL Academy League will help identify top prospects and provide more players with the opportunity to compete against professionals at a younger age, creating a valuable youth to pro pathway and increasing their soccer exposure and career opportunities.
