MLS Next Tryouts 2024: Best ways to join an Academy




The MLS soccer league has improved and is currently a destination for professional soccer players worldwide.

But getting invited for these tryouts is the biggest hurdle young players face since most clubs have different ways of scouting players for their respective youth development teams.


MLS Next Tryouts and how to go about it in 2024


One of the ways to get an MLS Tryouts is to become a part of the MLS Superdraft or the MLS Supplemental Draft. Or, to get a chance, you should be invited to MLS Combine, a talent showcase that was last held a few years ago.


The level of the MLS over the years has been outstanding, and to further improve on the level of youth soccer development, the MLS Next League was created.


What age is MLS next? The MLS Next League runs through under-13, under-14, under-15, under-16, under-17 and under-19 age groups.


How to participate

The participants of the MLS Next are players from various MLS clubs and other soccer development teams from the United States and Canada.


To be eligible, you must be a part of these teams. Players scouted and admitted into the various Soccer Academies across MLS would also participate.


To join any academies and stand a chance to participate, you must be among the players scouted by these Academies.



MLS Next Rules


The MLS Next League operates on specific rules guiding participating teams and players. These rules are directly from the league’s organiser, the MLS Next.


1. All Clubs and MLS NEXT Participants are required to comply with the MLS NEXT Rules.


2. PD reserves the right to decide how to enforce the MLS NEXT Rules at its sole and absolute discretion.


3. Should a Club or any MLS NEXT Participant associated with that Club be found in violation of any of the MLS NEXT Rules, the Club’s standing and Membership in MLS NEXT, or the individual’s participation in MLS NEXT, may be jeopardised, as further described below.


In addition, the MLS NEXT Rules are subject to change from time to time.

Although PDev makes every effort not to modify the MLS NEXT Rules mid-season, PDev reserves the right to amend or enact new policies at any time, particularly to the extent required by applicable law, the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee, or the Center, or otherwise where PDev believes it is in the best interest of MLS NEXT and the safety of its Players.


In changing these MLS NEXT Rules, PDev will best provide Clubs with advance notice.


Subject to any applicable laws, PDev may use any information in determining disqualifications for participation in MLS NEXT at PDev’s absolute discretion.


Such information may include, without limitation, the conviction of any felony, gross misdemeanours, violation of MLS NEXT Rules, or driving offences, including, but not limited to: loss of license, reckless driving, impaired driving, or a DUI.


Any person accused of physical or sexual misconduct or otherwise violating the PDev Safety and Wellbeing Policy may be suspended or placed in an alternate position by PDev until the matter is resolved.


Regardless of criminal or civil guilt in the alleged abuse, the person’s continued presence could be detrimental to the organisation’s reputation and harmful to the participants.


An accused person but later cleared of charges may apply to be reinstated to eligibility within MLS NEXT in PDev’s sole and absolute discretion.


Reinstatement is not a right, and no guarantee is made that they will be reinstated to their former position or any other position within the MLS NEXT ecosystem.
