Cedar Stars Academy Bergen and Cedar Stars Academy Monmouth are proud to announce their membership in the Girls Academy League.


The Girls Academy League is a newly formed top tier league in affiliation with the Development Player League (DPL), which will serve the top teams in each age group for member clubs.

The Girls Academy League will continue to use the most attractive components of the now dissolved U.S. Soccer Development Academy (USSDA) and will focus on improving areas that will benefit its members. Immediate changes will permit all players in the Girls Academy League to participate in High School soccer. Members will also see a change to the substitution rules to encourage clubs to better utilize their player pools, especially when showcasing their players to college coaches. Cross conference matches, college showcases and a national championship series are just a few of the immediate features that the Girls Academy League will be working on and structuring in the near future.

Through a new collaborative approach the Girls Academy League is primed to provide top players with a league and showcase platform that will create a bright future for our players.

"We believe that the platform created on a regional and national level will be a tremendous opportunity for our players to grow and showcase themselves on a grander scale."

Lee Glover - Cedar Stars Academy Bergen - Director of Girls Program

"The Girls Academy League aligns itself perfectly with everything that Cedar Stars Academy stands for. An initiative designed in collaboration with like minded programs, designed to offer elite players the platform to excel."

Andrew Giallombrado - Cedar Stars Academy Monmouth - Girls Director of Coaching


During the inaugural 2020-2021 season, the Girls Academy League will feature six conferences around the country: Southwest, Mid-America, Frontier, Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Southeast.
