US Soccer Development Academy tryouts take place once a year generally during the summer months. It is strongly suggested that you contact any club within the academy team that you are interested in playing for during the month of May. This will allow you to attend any tryouts that an academy team is having while their season is winding down. If you are planning on switching which team you are playing for in the US Soccer Development Academy then you may need to be aware of several rules that exist regarding player transfer. It is important for you to understand that you cannot legally tryout for another team until your commitment is over to your current academy team. As an academy player you are required to wait until the academy season ends in June. If your team makes the playoffs you must wait until you are eliminated from the playoffs to tryout for another team within the US Soccer Development Academy League. If you have never played in the US Soccer Development Academy league then you may be completely confused at this point. The best place to go for more information on the US Soccer Development Academy league is US Soccer’s website. After you head on over to US Soccer’s website then you should click on the Academy link in the top right of the page. This will bring you to the standings and directory of US Soccer Academy teams that exist. Your best bet is probably to click on the directory button because this will allow you to browse through the different academy teams that exist in your area. For the most part, academy teams exist in highly populated areas. This allows US Soccer academy teams to reach as many players as possible. By looking through the directory of teams you will be able to find an academy team that is near you. I strongly suggest that you tryout for several different teams if you are lucky enough to have more than one team near you. It is important to understand that it is very difficult to get on an academy team because spots do not open up that often. However, if you go to some US Soccer Development Academy Tryouts then you have a strong shot at making the team if you are a player that works hard during practice. Academy teams are not looking for superstars, they are looking for players that work hard and have a good work ethic.
