About Boys Elite Academy

The Elite Academy League (EA) was launched to provide enhanced player development opportunities for Elite Academy clubs inside a National Youth Platform extending best in class standards and providing club an Elite Platform to perform as a club. The Elite Academy (EA) League launched in 2020 with the start of two divisions, the Southwest and Northeast with over 30 clubs in the boys age groups of U13-U19. Here in 2021 we will launch 8 Divisions across the country furthering Elite player development in the United States providing top competition and an Elite player development platform guided by the clubs and for the clubs.


The Elite Academy League has a mission to provide a National platform with a standards-based league giving clubs the ability to provide a full developmental model and pathway with top competition and exposure.


Our vision is to sit atop the youth landscape providing Elite Academy clubs and leaders the opportunity to guide the league and have the autonomy to develop the game in the US.
This league will serve to provide a seamless elite pathway for clubs and players to excel in the competitive landscape.
