• The aim of the club is to develop players for the professional level in Europe or the MLS and USL. With our extensive network around the world, we have the ability to place players at all levels if we feel they have the mentality and qualities to progress to a higher level. During the last year, we have seen a number of our UPSL player’s sign and trial in the USL and Europe including:
Gianluca Cuomo (Rochester, NY) – Pro Contract with San Antonio FCConnor Kass (Melbourne, Australia) – Pro Contract in Lithuania
John Quintanilla (Sacramento, CA) – Pro Contract in Sweden

• The club opens their doors to aspiring youth players aged 15+ if they are good enough to compete with men at the UPSL level. As is the case in Europe then we allow any player the chance to compete in our program if they prove they are capable of competing at this level and we believe it is an excellent opportunity for top players in older youth groups to test themselves and compete at a higher level rather than playing within their comfort zone and age category. We believe this leads to quicker progression and development for younger talent that is looking to play at the top college and professional levels.
