Pride Awarded U12, U13 and U14 DA Teams


Colorado Springs, CO (February 10, 2016):

The Pride Soccer Club is excited to announce that our U12, U13 and U14 boys have been accepted as members of the U.S. Soccer Development Academy for the 2016-2017 season. The Development Academy is a nationwide youth program created to enhance the development of elite players through a focus on high technical standards, increased training, and more meaningful games.

Pride is dedicated to developing better people and better players, and as members of the Development Academy we will continue to provide the highest level of training and competition for our elite players. We are invested in our players at every level by offering programs for novice players, and with our acceptance into the Development Academy, we now have the ultimate step for our young players to aspire to reach on their soccer pathway.

Pride Competitive Boys Director of Coaching Brian Contreras said, “We are dedicated to player development both on and off the field, and this has been a goal of the Pride boys staff since the creation of the Development Academy in 2007. We are proud of the growth of the boys program over the past several years, and inclusion into the DA program is truly an honor. This would not have been possible without the efforts of past coaches, players and families, so thanks to all those Pride members that laid the foundation for the Pride Development Academy to become a reality! We are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity, to ensure all of our Pride players have the appropriate environment to reach their full potential while at Pride.”
