U12 Academy - MAAL

US Development Academy Clubs Form Partnership for 2019-20 Season

Due to the nation-wide elimination of the United States Development Academy (USDA) in the U12 Boys age group, Fort Wayne United FC is proud to join forces with neighboring USDA clubs to form the inaugural Mid America Academy League (MAAL).

US Youth Soccer continues to urge USDA clubs to offer increased opportunities for players age 10-12. With this in mind, MAAL was created to continue the focus on player development at the U12 Academy level. It will be the highest competition across the region at that age group.

The schedule for the 2019-20 season will be published in May and will be posted on the USDA web page. League games will take place in Fall 2019 and Spring 2020, with a Winter Festival in early 2020. Exclusive to USDA clubs in the Midwest region, MAAL will include Fort Wayne United FC, Indy Fire, Chicago Fire, Scott Gallagher(Illinois), Scott Gallagher(Missouri), Michigan Wolves, Cleveland Internationals, Vardar and Cincinnati Cup.

Try-out information will be announced soon.
