The Hartford Athletic Youth Academy strives to provide a pathway to professional soccer for top local talent in the New England and Tri-state area. The club has expanded to hold eight boys youth academy teams, including U8, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14, and U19 teams that play under the club’s current academy structure. Hartford Athletic has partnered with Everson Maciel, who has over 20 years of experience in youth soccer in Connecticut to support the expansion of the academy and augment the experience for players, parents, and coaches.
Hartford Athletic Youth Academy teams will benefit from many resources the club is able to provide including training in a professional environment, access to first team coaches and players, season tickets to first team matches and more. The U19 team competes in the UPSL for a second consecutive season. The U13-15 teams play in the National League while the U8-U12 teams play in the Elite Developmental Program.
