PacNW U.S. Development Academy (DA)

PacNW is a U.S. Soccer Development Academy Official Member. For the 2018/19 season, the PacNW Development Academy teams will be comprised of boys players with birth years 2006, 2005 and 2004.

Since 2007, the U.S. Soccer Development Academy has offered a comprehensive program that provides education, resources and support to impact club environments with the goal of developing elite players. The USSDA is the highest level of youth soccer competition in the United States, and there are currently only two other USSDA programs in the state of Washington. The Development Academy philosophy is based on increased training, less total games, and more meaningful games using international rules of competition. It connects National Team coaches directly with the Academy clubs to develop and identify players and coaches for involvement in the youth national team system.

PacNW Soccer Club is part of an exclusive group of USSDA clubs that will train individual players at a critical age for skill development. “U.S. Soccer Development Academy Clubs have made a tremendous commitment to player development in the past 9 years and will serve as the example for clubs and leagues throughout the country to provide the best possible environment for young players,” said U.S. Soccer Development Academy Director Jared Micklos.
