The Orlando Pride Development Academy is committed to developing excellence. It goes further than just technical and tactical coaching on the training field. We strive to form young people who are respectful, humble & who have a relentless desire to succeed. The demands are high, but the opportunities are endless.

Our Elite Player Development model & age specific curriculum ensures that Academy players are educated to the highest possible standard, equipping them with the tools required to perform at the top level of the game. A crucial element of the philosophy is encouraging young players to take ownership of their development - doing extra technical practice, working in the gym, using video analysis - anything which can make them better.

Of paramount importance however, is ensuring our young players enjoy the game of soccer.

Key Values

The Orlando Pride Development Academy strives to prepare young women for a future in professional soccer. Our goal is to become the leading Development Academy in US Soccer, consistently producing high quality players with the required technical, tactical & athletic skills to compete successfully in the NWSL.
