US Developmental Academy (DA) Placements

For the last 3 years in a row, Lions SC has successfully placed players in the top US Development Academies in Illinois. These players began as 6 and 7 year olds in our club and are now prospects for top Division 1 colleges and the US National Team by being part of the DA.

Unlike other clubs that hoard their talent - long past their ability to serve them, we are first to release our top players if we feel they have outgrown us. It is a true testament to our commitment to player development.
