Growing the Game from the Ground Up

Atlanta United is committing to growing the game from the grassroots up in Georgia and the South, and nowhere is that more apparent than the United Juniors Development Training Program.

The program is designed to identify youth players and enhance development earlier than the U-12 level, and give young talent the opportunity to train under the Atlanta United Academy staff at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Training Ground. Once selected, players will remain an active player with their own youth club while receiving additional development from Atlanta United’s Academy staff.

“This is a great way to help develop young players without taking them away from the clubs and their teams at such a young age. We look forward to working with coaches from Georgia youth soccer clubs to help enhance player development and assist with coaching education."

- Tony Annan, Academy Director

Atlanta United Academy staff will work with club directors and coaches from youth teams across Georgia to select players to join the United Juniors Training Program. For more information on this or the Soccer Development Partner Program, enquire with your club Director.
