The highly anticipated Development Academy Cup Winter Showcase Draw was held last week, with the Seacoast U17 & U19 Boys DA Teams excited to get down to Florida and compete against some of the country’s elite programs.
After winning the Northeast Conference this Fall, the U17s advance to the next round of the Cup and as expected will face some fierce competition. First up is a game against Bethesda SC (MD) who advanced from a strong conference, which included the likes of New York City FC, New England Revolution & Philadelphia Union. The players will then take on Sockers FC (IL), who advanced with a perfect record in a group that included Toronto FC & Sporting KC. The final group match will be against Houston Dynamo Youth (TX). The winner of the group will advance to the final 8 in the country, which will take place in the Spring and both the players and staff are looking forward to the tough challenge ahead.
The U19s will look to build on some impressive recent performances down in Florida. The team will kick-off their campaign against South Florida Football Academy (FL), followed by Armada Pro Academy (FL) and will wrap up the showcase with a game against Dallas Texans (TX).
“The DA Winter Showcase is a fantastic opportunity for our players to perform in front of an abundance of college coaches & professional scouts” commented Seacoast United Boys DA Director Peter Decker. “This is widely regarded as the top showcase event annually with our boys competing against the top teams in the nation.”
The DA Cup Winter Showcase will take place between December 4th- 8th and updates will be posted on all Seacoast United social media platforms.
