DSC Development Academy Upcoming Season

Discoveries Soccer Club is pleased to announce expansion into the USSF Development Academy for the 2018/19 season for the rising U13 (2006) and U14 (2005) age groups. DSC will participate in three age groups in the USSDA program beginning with the rising U11/12s up to the U14 age group this fall. DSC will also participate in the pre-DA league with our U11 (2008) age group.

Executive Director Dave Carton: “We are very excited to expand our DA presence at Discoveries. Many of our families have shown a great appetite for this level of play and we are looking forward to getting started. We are very grateful for the opportunity US Soccer has provided our club and we will do our utmost to provide the most professional soccer experience possible to our Development Academy players.”

The Academy has 197 total clubs, comprised of teams across six age groups in the boys’ program: U-12, U-13, U-14, U-15, U-16/17, and U-18/19. These clubs are all located within geographically-based divisions across gender and age group levels. Each team plays home and away games against the other teams in their division, plus games against non-division opponents from across the country during the 10-month season. DSC will play in the South Atlantic league against some of the top academies in the country including Atlanta United, NCFC, and Concorde Fire.

What is the Development Academy?

Following a comprehensive review of elite player development in the United States and around the world, U.S. Soccer created the Development Academy in 2007 for male players in the U-15 to U-18 age groups. In 2013, the Academy expanded to include the U-13/14 age group, and in 2016, the Academy launched the U-11/U-12 age group, which has continued to improve development by setting standards and improving the everyday environment for elite players and clubs. Academy alumni have progressed to play at elite amateur and professional levels with 44 Academy graduates taken in the 2018 MLS Superdraft. In addition, 142 of 153 players called to the Youth National Team Camp in the fall of 2017 are DA players.

Being part of this elite program allows DSC to offer players wanting to take their game to the next level the opportunity to compete on a national stage with the best in the country.
