Tennessee United Soccer Club is excited to be accepting the invitation and joining the Development Player League (DPL) after meeting their competitive standards.

The DPL is a large national program with a robust footprint including some of the top girls clubs in the country.  As a club, this is a step in the right direction for our girls seeking to continue the player development pathway for girls at the Elite level that still wish to play high school soccer.  This opportunity gives our female players an additional growth platform for college exposure, better and meaningful competition, and a program that indirectly fits under the Development Academy program.  At Tennessee United, we are committed to enhance these opportunities and continue maximizing the overall experience for our players.

For the 2022-2023 season, Tennessee United has been extended “Event Status” access where we are able to take full advantage of their national college showcase platform while DPL grows the league in our region.

The DPL is a girls only national league providing an elite competition platform for top youth soccer clubs in the US.  TUSC will be an Event-Only member this first year (2022-2023 season).

Currently, there is not a conference close enough to TUSC for us to join immediately.  DPL has already begun the process of identifying top clubs in our region, as three clubs have received event-status for this year.  As a club, we will work closely with the DPL staff to actively support the growth of the league in our region.  We are mandated, but not limited, to attend one showcase event.

  • U15-U19: January 5-8, 2023 in Palm Beach Gardens, FL
  • U13-U14: March 16-19, 2023 in Tampa, FL

TUSC’s top U13, U14, U15, U16, U17 and U18/19 teams will participate in DPL.  All other teams will continue to participate in State League.

Yes, players can participate in DPL and High School soccer.

Teams expectations are to train up to three (3) times per week.

Yes, the DPL College Showcase events are well attended by Division 1, 2, 3 and NAIA coaches.

Financial expectations will have minimal impact on current fee structure.  Specific league expenses will be reflected and managed within your team budgets.

All female players from any club are eligible to play in the DPL.  Our tryouts are the mechanism to make a DPL team roster.  Tryouts for the 2022-2023 season will be held May 31-June 2nd.  Click here to register.
