The Michigan Wolves are inaugural members of the US Soccer Development Academy, which began in 2007. On October 14th, 2008, the Wolves formed a strategic partnership with England’s Derby County FC. By the following year, both our U16 and U18 teams were ranked #1 in the United States, and our U16's were crowned National Champions.
In 2011, the Michigan Wolves began a 7-year relationship with the Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer. During this time, the Wolves have been regular participants in the Academy playoffs, and our players have enjoyed consistent recognition from US Soccer as recipients of their end-of-the-year Conference Best XI honors.
Since the beginning of the Development Academy, the Wolves have been proud to assist 9 players on their path to Major League Soccer rosters and several more to Youth National Teams. In 2012 and 2013, the club was honored when Wolves alum Josh Gatt earned 2 caps with the full US Men’s National team as he competed in matches against Russia and Canada.
After 11 years in the Development Academy, the Michigan Wolves continue to be at the forefront of player development in our country. We are pleased to offer top young players the opportunity to compete at the highest level of youth soccer in the United States.
