Under-14 National Development program

With the objective to expand and improve the Youth National Team player pool, U.S. Soccer launched the Youth National Teams Under-14 Talent Identification Program in 2019. This new scouting model functions as a collaboration between the U.S. Soccer Talent Identification department (TID) and the Youth National Teams Program.

Designed to discover and introduce a larger base of top talents at the U-14 age group into the scouting funnel of the older YNTs, a mini-camp format helps evaluate and inspire high-potential players while accelerating their development in an engaging and challenging environment.
