The FC Dallas Development Academy is the official youth system for Major League Soccer franchise, FC Dallas. The club fields an array of youth teams ranging from the U-18/Reserve team side down to the ranks of camps for youth soccer players around the age of 10.

History[edit]

Structure[edit]

The FC Dallas Development Academy is structured into three individual tiers, ranging from reserve players to the senior roster down to pre-development academy camps.

The main development academy consists of the U-18 and U-16 teams, which compete in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy league, which has been an active league since 2009.

The next tier is the pre-academy, which is expected[by whom?] to compete in U.S. Youth Soccer's upcoming 2011–12 season.[citation needed] This will include the U-15, U-14 and U-13 teams.
