There are still spots available in both the Advanced Placement and Metro groups for Minnesota United’s Pre-Academy sessions this fall. The Pre-Academy program is the beginning of the pathway into the MNUFC Development Academy. This is a supplementary training program, where players stay with their club teams full-time while participating in additional session with the Pre-Academy. Selected players will also participate in competitions on weekends throughout the year. Along with the training and events, all players will have the opportunity to participate in Festivals set up throughout the year where players come together and play.
Players are placed at an Academy Development Center (ADC) in either an ADC-AP (Advanced Placement) or an ADC-Basic Placement (BP) group. For the latter group, these centers can be found throughout the Twin Cities and no players are cut from this Metro program.
