The purpose of the USL Academy Standards is to create optimal player development environments, and provide local youth prospects the best chance of reaching the professional level. All league-approved USL Academy programs are required to meet a set of minimum standards across a series of categories. By developing these standards, USL aims to pursue the following key goals:

Build Pathways: 

Establish as many youth to pro player development pathways, linking elite youth organizations with USL Senior Teams in Championship, League One, League 2 & W League.

Produce Players: 

Increase the number & quality of locally produced talents for USL Senior Teams, while striving to develop world-class players able to compete at the highest level.

Improve Quality: 

Improve the standard of long-term player development programs across the United States, positively impacting every aspect of those environments & pathways.


Will there be a Boys and Girls Academy Team?

Yes we will offer both Boys and Girls Academy teams.  The Girls program launched this past summer as part of a pilot league.  Details for 2024 coming soon!

What age are the players? 

The USL Academy League rosters are made up of players between the ages of 15 and 20 and play as a U20 team in the Academy League.  Five overage players can be used on game-day making this a true Reserve team to our W League & USL 2 Teams

How many players are on the roster?

Teams are able to register as many players as they desire but they have an active roster of 26 players and a game day roster of 18 players.  At Wake FC we plan to carry a pool of 30-35 players

Where will the players be from on the roster?

The roster can be made up of players from all different clubs as long as they meet the age requirements. The league has different player classification that allow them to remain on another roster for their parent club.  At Wake FC we will utilize the players from our current club rosters, as well as being open to giving outside players the chance to roster into our USL Academy pathway.
