The FYSA Olympic Development Program for the 2014-2015 year.  A program description and FAQ for the year can be found by clicking on the link.

The FYSA Olympic Development Program structure for identifications will utilize both a scouting process and trial process.  We will be holding Fall trials in the 2001-2002 age groups and 1998-1999-2000 players. Players in the 2001-2003 age groups will also have Training Centers.

The mission of the Florida Youth Soccer Association is to identify players for our men’s and women’s Youth National Teams.  The selection process takes place through state, regional and national events.

The primary benefit to the player is to be able to train, play, and compete against the best players in their age group.  This allows the best players to be with the best in order to further their development as soccer players.

Our State Staff is comprised of professional, college, high school, and club coaches.  All of these coaches are nationally licensed by US Soccer.  It is the goal of our staff to conduct these trials in a fair and impartial manner.

Florida Youth Soccer Association encourages always look for ways to challenge and improve themselves as players.  We continue to strive to make this program the finest in the country.
