Why Participate in the Elite Academy League?

A platform of competition that provides our club with an enhanced environment for player development by providing the following:

  • League structure and policies support Manitou FC’s player development plans.
  • Provides more balanced competition against other like-minded clubs.
  • Allows players a “seasonal break” to play for their local high school team.
  • Provides a regional program of competition over several months of the year.
  • League calendar helps coaches build each age group’s annual training plan.
  • Exposure is provided to players looking to continue their soccer journey.

Club & Team Participation Expectations

It is important that players and parents have an understanding of the expectations that participation on a Manitou FC team requires. The following age group overviews have been developed to provide as much information as possible so that families can plan accordingly. Manitou FC supports multi-sport athletes within Orange and Black Team levels and asks that any athlete having such conflicts, especially during the winter season training program, communicate directly with your team’s coach to coordinate schedules and attendance. Multi-sport athletes must be “pre-approved” by the club’s Sporting Director to play on an Elite Academy team. Please note that Pre-EA programming for U11 and U12 age groups provides additional competition events for these ages.

If you have any questions about the player expectations or would like further clarification about age-group programming, please email Edi Buro, Manitou FC Sporting Director, at SportingDirector@ManitouFC.org.

BOYS UPSL

INTRODUCTIONProgram Details

Manitou FC’s player pathway provides for male athletes who are looking to compete on regional level within the United Premier Soccer League (UPSL). Competing within the Midwest-West Conference, players age U17 through U19 are eligible for team selection. Home games are played at the athletic complex at White Bear Lake High School North Campus. 

Founded in 2011, the United Premier Soccer League now stands as the largest and most competitive pro-development league in North America. The league was started in Santa Ana, California by Leonel Lopez, with 10 teams. Today 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. With a participant average age of 22.5 years, the UPSL fills and brings structure to 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.

Each UPSL club is independently owned and operated. The league operates year-round, comprising two seasons each calendar year, with the Spring season beginning in March and ending with national playoffs the first weekend in August, and a Fall season with play beginning in September with national playoffs the first weekend in February. The league prides itself on openness, inclusion, and accessibility.
