US National U18 Team Camp

Posted Apr 19, 2018

The Portland Thorns FC Academy program uses a holistic approach in the development of players with thorough information on nutrition, sports psychology, strength conditioning, speed and agility. The goal for all Thorns youth players is to reach the top of the developmental pyramid (included below). From the academy, players will have the opportunity to advance to college or to the Thorns WPSL team (coming soon), a team made up of Thorns first-team reserve players and college players. From there, players will have the opportunity to earn collegiate scholarship offers, national team invites and have the chance to be drafted into the NWSL. Our top quality coaching and supporting staff have teamed up with members of the Thorns first team (both players and coaches) to establish the best tactics possible for our program.
