US Soccer Initiatives
As a part of its mission to make soccer, in all its forms, the preeminent sport in the United States and to continue the development of soccer at all recreational and competitive levels, U.S. Soccer’s Player Development Initiatives (PDIs) are now officially integrated as a part of the soccer landscape
Following a two-year implementation window with the announcement of PDIs in August 2015, U.S. Soccer’s 60 youth member organizations, including US Youth Soccer, US Club Soccer, American Youth Soccer Organization and Soccer Association for Youth are collectively set to roll out the new standards and initiatives, which include birth year registration and small-sided game standards.
The initiatives, which align with U.S. Soccer’s mission to become the preeminent sport in the United States and to advance the sport at all recreational and competitive levels, officially went into effect Aug. 1, 2017.
