These teams are comprised of players invited to be on a team by our SUSA staff. Players must demonstrate a level of commitment to training that exceeds that of the Bright Futures leagues. The commitment of our players will help the SUSA Coaching Staff ensure that players are developing appropriately within their peer groups and to establish an accurate trajectory toward their initial placement on a more competitive Academy team. As players exit this phase of the Youth Development Program, they will have developed a strong fundamental skill level, an understanding of our style of play, and the culture at SUSA.
