The highest tier available to Valeo FC boys players is our Valeo FC MLS NEXT teams. As the official youth league of Major League Soccer, MLS NEXT is the highest level of youth soccer available to young boys in the United States. All of our MLS NEXT teams are fully funded, as we believe no player with the capabilities to compete at this level should be denied due to economic circumstance. Currently, Valeo FC MLS Next teams compete at the U13, U14, and U16 level.
Our MLS NEXT teams are reserved for the strongest youth players in New England, and offer intense training under the guidance of our elite coaching staff.
As one of only four Massachusetts clubs participating in the National Academy League, Valeo FC will provide a competitive platform geared towards college recruiting and regional and national exposure for its players. The National Academy League serves as a Pre-MLS NEXT platform where technical and administrative processes will be aligned with the MLS NEXT platform.
This new initiative will provide our players with the game-day preparation needed to excel in collegiate and professional soccer environments. Our dedicated coaching staff and state-of-the-art facilities will ensure that our players have access to the best possible resources for their development.
The Valeo FC Pre-MLS Next Program is for boys who wish to receive elite-level training and highly competitive games played in the Northeast Academy League.
The main objectives for the program are to better prepare players for the elite level of play at the 11v11 level in MLS Next and identify the top talent in advance of tryouts.
Valeo players progress to play in more competitive leagues based on their INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPMENT. Athletes are placed on a team within the league that competes at their level of play, while still providing a challenging developmental experience.
Valeo’s professionally licensed Coaches and highly skilled Trainers pay close attention to INDIVIDUAL PLAYER DEVELOPMENT creating an environment that allows the most passionate, committed, and ambitious players to develop and progress at their own pace, regardless of their teams record or a teammate’s abilities.
