Since its inception, Next Gen USA has strived to cultivate relationships with professional soccer entities across the world in an effort to provide enhanced educational opportunities for talented players in the Next Gen USA network to test their skills, gain exposure to new methods and become a more capable student of the game by working with technicians and directors from these organizations.
Studies have shown that these interactions have benefitted thousands of players in Next Gen USA and enhanced the value of "learning by doing" through key Next Gen USA programs such as Emerging Talent Centers, Select Squad Tours, School Release Program and International Development Festivals.
It is through these partnerships that Next Gen USA has been able to give the best players the challenge that they need to continue to develop their skills both on and off of the field. These opportunities include, but are not limited to, playing abroad against professional youth academies, being instructed by top professional coaches, as well as being invited to train with a professional academy.
Listed below are some of the professional clubs and organizations that Next Gen USA has partnered with over the years to promote talent identification and player development for youth that come through the Next Gen USA network.
