Players First Summit





The Summit is an educational and collaborative experience for all attendees.

The inaugural Players First Summit was held in December 2019 in Miami, Florida. The 2020 Summit was held virtually due to health and travel concerns attributed to the COVID-19 pandemic and was the first large-scale digital symposium in US Club Soccer history. We are looking forward to bringing our membership an in-person event in 2021 and are already beginning the planning process to do so.

Players First is a branded, holistic club soccer experience for parents and players, which emphasizes the development of each individual to his or her full potential, and helps parents make better choices about where their children should play.

The Players First license is created to differentiate clubs in the marketplace that are committed to providing an exceptional player development experience through the proper facilitation of relationships with their coaches, parents and players. Here is the directory of current Players First-licensed clubs.
