National Player Pathway

Establishing a pathway for U.S. youth soccer athletes

SAI National Pathway

A network of coaches and clubs that gives our athletes an opportunity to play at the highest levels.

We are determined to provide a clear pathway to college or pro level competition for our athletes. This is vital for our success and in our opinion the success of U.S. youth soccer.

This pathway is made up of a variety of methods that all integrate to form our national network. These methods include our MLS academy partnerships, coach relationships, and youth club partners.

Orlando City Academy Partnership

SAI is the exclusive pre-college academic partner for the Orlando City academy players.

Our MLS partnership with Orlando City academy has been a big value add in supporting our national player pathway. We handle all of the academics and college prep for the academy players. This partnership has served to help both organizations.

Our athletes at the SAI campus have the opportunity to be known and scouted by the OC academy coaches, and regularly receive presentations from their coaching staff. This dynamic is only going to grow over the years.

Coach Network

Consistently growing our network of youth, college, and pro level coaches.

We are continually expanding our relationships within the sport. Coaches are a great way for us to both present opportunities to our students and learn what the best are looking for in a player.

This is an invaluable resource for us and has allowed our program to improve at a rapid rate.
