Scouting the Crowd

One of the biggest advantages for players in the Development Academy is the immense scouting network that U.S. Soccer provides. National team coaches and assistants spend all day watching multiple games, looking for players that may be worth an invitation to a future national team camp. Just down the sideline from them are hundreds of college coaches too, representing programs large and small. Take a look at the list of scouts and coaches attending the 2009 Showcase, and you'll quickly see that the exposure these players get is a just reward for the work they put in on the field.
