Austin FC’s development academy, Austin FC Academy, will begin to play this August with an Under 14 (U-14) team, which will compete in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy 2019-20 season. Players born in 2006 or later will be eligible.
Tyson Wahl, general manager of Austin FC’s Academy will oversee academy operations.
Austin FC Academy will be a fully funded program, so there is no financial burden of registration, uniform, and travel fees for players and their families who are accepted to the academy.
Junro Narita, the technical director at St. Stephen’s Soccer Academy, was named head coach of the Austin FC Academy U-14 team.
The U-14 Austin FC Academy team will train and play competitive matches at St. Stephen’s Soccer Academy on an interim basis until it moves to Austin FC’s permanent training facility.
Prospective players born in 2006 are encouraged to apply to be in the Austin FC Academy.
