MLS NEXT provides the best player development experience in North America. Founded on a collaborative approach to governance and a commitment to innovation, MLS NEXT players have access to the highest levels of competition and to training to prepare them for their futures, both in soccer and in life. Michigan Jaguars FC provides MLS NEXT teams at U13, U14, U15 and U16. Our Pre-MLS NEXT program starts at U12.
One of the core principals of our club's MLS NEXT program is the emphasis on players being in the right environment for their development needs. We actively pursue opportunities for our players to trial with professional MLS academies and maintain positive relationships with Academy scouts. Our players have had the opportunity to trial with clubs like FC Cincinnati and Sporting Kansas City, and are regularly exposed to MLS scouts through our league. If your player dreams of playing in a professional Academy or college soccer at the highest levels, our program is a great place to start.
