MLS NEXT replaced the U.S. Soccer Development Academy in 2020 and is considered the elite league in the United States for boys soccer players. Michigan Jaguars FC MLS NEXT teams compete against the best boys teams and players, including the academies affiliated with professional MLS clubs.
“On top of playing against better competition, our boys will have many opportunities to be scouted by both Colleges and MLS Academies,” Pososki said. “Our club’s goal is to put each player in the best development environment, and that includes pushing our best players into MLS Academies if they are ready for that opportunity.”
