Since 2016, the USL Experience has provided a platform for many of the country’s top youth players to showcase their skills in a professional setting. Each year, a combination of 72 boys and girls players are chosen across various age groups to represent their clubs on a national scale at USLX.
With previous stops in Cincinnati, San Antonio and Phoenix, the 2019 USLX heads to Tampa, Florida – the home of the Tampa Bay Rowdies and United Soccer Leagues (USL) headquarters.
The 2019 USL Experience will take place from April 11-14.
The first-ever USL Experience was hosted in Cincinnati back in 2016 in conjunction with FC Cincinnati, before traveling to San Antonio (San Antonio FC) in 2017 and Phoenix (Phoenix Rising FC) in 2018.
USLX is designed for the players, and offers insight into the life of a professional. Upon arrival, players will be exposed to media sessions, on-field training, game experiences and sight seeing in Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg, Florida.
Players selected for the USL Experience will be exposed to a professional environment that extends from training and playing games at a professional facility to receiving top-caliber coaching. Players have the opportunity to gain exposure with various collegiate and professional scouts and coaches present.
Additionally, players will receive Capelli gear, which includes a jacket, top, shorts, socks and backpack.
