Bolts Advanced Development Program (ADP)
Bolts Advanced Development Program (ADP) 2018
The Bolts Advanced Development Program (ADP) is a high-level training environment designed to challenge a player's technical ability, speed of play, and comfort levels on the ball. The ADP will provide a pathway for players striving to play in the US Soccer Development Academy and the newly formed Boys ECNL. This program is open to all age appropriate players, both current Bolts and players from other clubs. The ADP will provide a platform for player identification and an Academy type training environment experience.
Development Academy Tryouts 2017/18
The Development Academy team tryouts will be by 'invitation only'. Those current DA players, who are guaranteed a spot on next year's roster, will be given an official offer. Academy coaches will be attending the ECNL tryouts to select the ECNL teams, so if a player who is trying out for the ECNL teams demonstrate Academy-level skills, he will be identified by a member of the Academy staff.
Bolts will offer the full range of DA teams in 2017/18
- U12 (2006)
- U13 (2005)
- U14 (2004)
- U15 (2003) new Academy age group this season
- U16/17 (2002 & 2001)
- U18/19 (2000 & 1999)
US Soccer Development Academy
Boston Bolts were one of the original eleven youth soccer clubs selected for the US Soccer Development Academy. The US Soccer Academy provides our players unprecedented training methods, and the ultimate exposure to college and US National Team coaches. After an extensive review process, the US Soccer Federation coaches hand selected the best clubs in the United States from among hundreds of applicants based on their record of high level youth development, history of success in major tournaments, and quality coaching staffs. Bolts teams compete in the U12, U13, U14, U15, U16/17 and U18/19 age groups.
