BSC To Join MLS Elite Youth Development Platform

Bethesda Soccer Club is proud to announce that we are one of 95 elite soccer academies from across the United States and Canada – 65 elite youth clubs and 30 MLS clubs – that have committed to join a groundbreaking new MLS player development platform as Founding Members. More than 8,000 elite youth soccer players will be brought under the same structure as part of this program. 

The new platform will consist of elite year-round competition as well as coaching education opportunities, player identification initiatives and programming to create the ideal environment for elite player development. 

Leaders from across the soccer landscape, combining MLS academies and elite academy clubs, will collaborate in co-creating the structure of the platform. 

The goals of MLS and non-MLS academies are deeply aligned – to improve the game in our country and provide our players with a year-round, high-level competition, and ultimately develop professional players and a pathway to college.

"Playing in the MLS Elite Youth Development Platform will give our players new challenges and strong competition from both MLS and from elite club teams in the region," said Technical Director Jonathon Colton. "I am excited to see our players grow and develop to their highest potential in this new league and for the opportunities, both on and off of the field, that it will provide them."

Additional information will be provided in the coming days and weeks ahead. In the meantime you can check the full press release put out by MLS below. If you have questions please contact our Academy Director Matt Ney at .
