REPUBLIC FC ACADEMY
Republic FC launched its Youth Development Academy in 2015, providing a top-tier training environment for youth players and the only youth-to-pro pathway in the Sacramento region. Republic FC Academy players have gone on to represent the club’s first team in league, friendly, and U.S. Open Cup matches, at the Division I collegiate level, as well as their respective nations on Youth National Teams.
The club’s Academy competes in the highest level of youth soccer in North America – MLS NEXT – providing a professional tier, high-level development environment to the region’s top players and teams. Since its effective replacement of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy system, which operated from 2007-2020, MLS NEXT has attracted 133 local clubs – home to 90% of U.S. Soccer’s national team player pool [E1] – and operates yearly postseason and showcase competitions in addition to the regular season running from September to May.
Sacramento Republic FC embodies the indomitable spirit of Sacramento through a unified purpose. Our relentless commitment to excellence and humble approach will lead to sustained success and positively impact our community.
