The YNT U-14 TID Program is designed to discover and introduce a larger base of top talents at the U-14 age group into the scouting funnel of the older U-15 to U-20 WYNTs. The mini-camp format helps to evaluate and inspire high-potential players while accelerating their development in an engaging and challenging environment.

In addition to expanding the YNT player pool at its early stages, the scouting and identification structure gives U-14 players more opportunities to absorb core principles of the YNT philosophy to further their development. Travel is minimized through the regional mini-camp set-up, helping minimize days away from home, school and club. The program also bolsters U.S. Soccer’s national network of scouts, advancing their education and development while also building the Federation’s connections with clubs across the country.
