Boys Pathway

VA Revolution is introducing a supplemental national platform pathway for our youth male players with the introduction of VA Revolution Pro U19s. This expansion of our current program marks a significant step forward for young talents, offering them a direct route to professional soccer.


The VA Revolution Pro U19s team will compete in the first division of the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL), a league known for its competitiveness and pro-development ethos. Founded in 2011, the UPSL has grown to become North America’s largest pro-development league, affiliated with the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) and offering clubs the chance to qualify for the U.S. Open Cup.


The introduction of VA Revolution Pro U19s not only elevates the level of competition for young players but also opens doors for college coaches and professional scouts seeking emerging talents.


The United Premier Soccer League now stands as the largest and most competitive pro-development league in North America. The league has nearly 400 clubs competing nationwide, and the Premier Division for Spring 2022 has 255 clubs competing for 32 places in the National Playoff Bracket to become National Champion.

The league occupies the 4th tier of the US Soccer pyramid, just below the three professional tiers in the pyramid. The UPSL fills the large gap that exists between the youth game and the professional game, serving thousands of aspiring players and coaches as they strive to further their aspirations and fuel their passions.
