Take the challenge.
Become an Arsenal player.

Players from the Arsenal Academy Program and the Hotspurs College Prep Phase (U16-U19) will have the opportunity to earn a spot with the NPSL or UWS first team squad.

The partnership between these two clubs will create a unique pathway to training and competing with advanced collegiate and adult players, providing local youth players with college and potential pro prospects the platform to push themselves further, earlier.  



The National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) is one of the largest established men’s soccer leagues in the United States with over 90 teams competing across the country.

The NPSL vision is to be the foundation of the U.S. Soccer development pyramid and help the U.S. become a soccer nation and develop a strong national team.

The NPSL is a member of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) and is thereby affiliated with the United States Soccer Federation (USSF).

United Women’s Soccer (UWS) announced the launch of League Two for the Summer 2020: a new developmental pathway for players in the U20-U23 age group.

UWS League Two is under the umbrella of the national pro-am league. It is also the official league for UWS reserve teams.

The season will run during the summer and teams will play matches in a regional-friendly format.

In addition to providing opportunities for our oldest players, this collaboration will also influence those in the younger phases of our Developmental Pyramid.

Beginning at the Junior Academy level, players will participate in friendly and competitive training environments designed to introduce them to a variety of game situations and to improve the relationship between players across clubs.

Here is how the collaboration will be implemented at each level:
