The Girls Academy (GA) is a new, member-led league that currently includes 59 elite level clubs, including 45 former U.S. Soccer Girls’ DA clubs across the country. The GA consists of like-minded clubs who insist on a standard driven approach that enhances development for our players, coaches, and club.

The Girls Academy (GA) is a new, member-led league that currently includes 59 elite level clubs, including 45 former U.S. Soccer Girls’ DA clubs across the country. The GA consists of like-minded clubs who insist on a standard driven approach that enhances development for our players, coaches, and club. 

The GA provides elite female athletes with a true national pathway and competition platform that allows them to have various talent identification opportunities both for league play and at showcase events that maximize visibility by college coaches and youth national team scouts.

By unifying DA clubs from conferences across the country we have found a way to maintain several of the defining standards of the Development Academy with flexibility in two key areas; permission for all players to participate in High School Soccer and revising the substitution rules to encourage clubs to better utilize their player pools, especially when showcasing their players to college coaches. 

The GA will be made up of six conferences including: Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Mid-America, Southeast, Frontier, and Southwest. The GA plans to have cross-conference matches, college showcases and a national championship series during its inaugural season.

RISE will compete in the Frontier Conference for the 2020/21 season and we will form teams in the following age groups: U12 Pre-Academy, U-13, U-14, U-15, U-16 U-17, and U-18/19. The U18/U19 will be funded and players who make this team will not have to pay club fees.
