The U.S. Soccer Development Academy, U.S. Soccer’s new national team training program, consists of the top U-15/16 and U-17/18 teams from across the country. U.S. Soccer is using the Academy as a platform to develop and identify up-and-coming players, coaches and referees. The Development Academy is the first step in the Pro Identification track for referees. A number of referees were identified in last year’s events for further development.
