The goal of establishing the National Academy League (NAL) was to enhance the daily environment for male student-athletes by means of a club-based development platform. By specifically emphasizing top-tier competition, robust player identification opportunities, and a national playoff structure, the National Academy League will provide a national platform that allows student-athletes to increase visibility at the NCAA level, while competing at the highest level domestically.
- The National Academy League provides clubs with the ability to attend a NAL National Event that coincides with the IMG Cup College Showcase in December 2023.
- The National Academy League also provides a postseason structure that rewards the top teams in the nation, with the opportunity to compete for a National Academy League National Championship in June 2024.
- In-market elite competition for the state of Florida, whereas the National Academy League has limited travel constraints through a conference that is strictly designed for the sixteen Florida-based clubs.
- Players are part of a competitive training environment that focuses on holistic development.
- Meaningful competition with the ability to compete for an NAL National Championship.
- Increased player visibility opportunities from college coaches at the NAL showcase.
