Select Squad Tour Program
Next Gen USA offers a distinguished program for promising male and female soccer players to test their skills, Soccer Intelligence and athletic abilities against some of the world's best youth Academies and Developmental squads.
The Select Squad Tour Program is by invitation only and is one of the most challenging developmental programs available to American youth soccer players.
Select Squad participants are identified by Next Gen USA technical staff at Regional Talent Showcases held in various locations from MidWest to the East Coast. Players may also be seen at summer International Development Festivals (IDF), or simply nominated by their club DOC's and Team coaches.
Next Gen has followed former National Team Coach, Jurgen Klinsman's sentiments of, "To be the best, you have to play against the best", and has pioneered the way for US players to gain International experience by competing in some of Europes most prestigious Tournaments, as well specifically designed Developmental Pro-Club Academy tours to UK, Germany, Spain, Argentina & Brazil
