Player Designations

Full-Time Players

The U14/U16/U18 Full Rosters will consist of players who can only participate on their designated Academy team (or an older age group Academy team if needed), with only 1 exception:  National Team duty.   All Academy team players must forego playing for their high school team as they will participate in a 10 month Academy season.  Each player is assured a 25% minimum start requirement so long as they maintain Internationals Academy standards for training and game availability.

Developmental Players (DP)

U14/U16/U18 Developmental Players will train with their respective Academy team on a full-time basis and may be asked to participate in Academy games so long as those are limited to a maximum of 7 appearances - there is no minimum.  DPs may also participate on club-designated teams in leagues, tournaments, and State Cup competitions (see below) and, individually, in such organizations as ODP, ID2, and All Star events.  They may also participate in the high school soccer season and come back to Academy training in November.  If DPs choose not to play high school they will train with the Academy for the full 10 month time period.

NPL Players

NPL players are Internationals Soccer Club (ISC) players who are training at a high training and competition level working toward future advancement to the Academy either through a Full or Developmental status.  They are able to play with their high school teams and can also participate in individual activities such as ODP, ID2 and All Star competitions.  The main thrust, however, will be development and training within a team framework so as to better prepare them for the Development Academy program.

For Internationals, the main focus of teams U13 and above is the National Premier League, a unified, league-based national developmental platform with the highest level of competition in its geographic areas.  Created to elevate and change the competitive youth soccer landscape based upon US Club Soccer’s fundamental principles, the NPL extends developmental principals espoused by the U.S. Soccer Development Academy into younger age groups and additional clubs, providing a platform for long-term player development.  It has become the gateway for youth soccer players into the Developmental Academy program.
Internationals is a member of the Midwest Developmental League which includes all of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy clubs and the top clubs outside the Academy in the Midwest.  Competition includes fellow Mid-America Division members Michigan Wolves, Vardar, St Louis Scott Gallagher(2), Minnesota Thunder, FC Milwaukee, Chicago Fire, Magic, and Sockers along with traditional club rivals Raptors, Madison 56ers, Fort Wayne Fever, and Ohio Elite.

The culminating event each year is the NPL Champions Cup, where national championships are awarded. The NPL Champions Cup features qualifiers from every NPL across the country in a true “champions league” competition.

Locally, and through all age groups, Internationals will play in the Alliance Premier Soccer League which recently joined the US Club Soccer’s Premier Leagues platform, a network of leagues in local, statewide and similar geographic regions for competitive clubs and teams.  Based in Northeast Ohio, teams compete in a divisional format as well as in many tournament competitions.  

The Premier Leagues platform builds on the success of the National Premier Leagues (NPL) and the principle that league-based competition is the primary means for long-term player development and growth of the game.

With the training and activities listed above, the NPL player comes well-prepared for the next step in their development - the Internationals Development Academy.
