The Orlando City Youth is Florida's leading program for developing players from 8-18. Orlando City is the only club in Florida to offer both US Soccer Development Academy program and the ECNL program (the top level of play available for boys and girls respectively).

All players are coached in the Orlando City system and philosophy of play by professional coaches, and receive a minimum of two hours a week of training and a game. Players submit for tryouts at the beginning of the season and are placed on teams. Player movement between teams is possible throughout the year.
