Metro United to join Girls Academy League

Metro United is delighted to announce we will be joining the majority of former DA clubs around the nation in The Girls Academy – the new elite nationwide league run by the DPL (Development Premier League).

This league will feature over 50 clubs nationwide with the goal of providing an elite-level competition environment within a structure similar to that of the DA. For more information about The Girls Academy,

After exploring a variety of competition options, the Metro United Staff feels The Girls Academy will provide the proper level of play, a reasonable amount of travel and necessary revisions to rules regarding high school soccer and in-game substitutions. These factors ultimately lead us to believe the GA is the best fit for our club moving forward.

This new platform will provide our players with an opportunity to compete with and against the top youth players in the country and ensure nationwide exposure to top-level college soccer and the US Youth National Teams.

We are very fortunate to have a wide-range of expertise and experience among our staff, within our partner clubs and our club’s strategic consultant. This expertise will remain crucial as we work together to achieve our vision of making Metro United the best club for youth soccer development in the country.

We can’t wait to move forward on this new, exciting path with our amazing partner clubs, our staff and the dedicated student athletes and families who have made Metro United so special to us all.
