Soccer Development League

Just a reminder to those of you who don't know, this year's Soccer Development League (SDL) is in full swing and it is shaping up to be one of the most competitive seasons to date. The league, which was founded in 1978 here in South Florida gives our local High School and College athletes a chance to to keep their skills during those long summer vacations away from school.

Over the years, the SDL has been a breeding ground of sorts for many players and often times you will find college scouts and coaches on the sidelines looking for talent. Players such as Jamaican International Tyrone Marshall and US National Mark Chung as well as other standouts such as Bobby Boswell, John Pulido and Cory Gibbs have played in the SDL .

This year, Miami FC Strength and Conditioning coach Rodrigo Dias plays with the Academy, a multiple time winner of the SDL.
