In 2001 YPT broke new ground for summer training opportunities in the US by flying in academy trainers from two of Europe's biggest and most famous clubs: Manchester United and Bayern Munich.

The idea behind YPT's Residence Program is to give motivated young players a better understanding of what it takes to make it at the highest level. For one week, selected players are treated and trained as if they were 'youth professionals' at a high profile club.

YPT's Residence Program has slowly, but surely, become one of best summer training opportunities in the United States.

YPT is extremely proud of the roster of trainers who have been involved in the Program. Over the years these top clubs have sent trainers to the Residence Program:

     Manchester United [England]

     1860 Munich [Germnay]

     SL Benfica [Portugal]

     KSC Lokeren [Belgium]

     Inter Milan [Italy]

     Club Brugge [Belgium]

     FC Ingolstadt [Germany]

     Ajax of Amsterdam [Holland]

     Oldham Athletic [England]

     PSV Eindhoven [Holland]

     Bayern Munich [Germany]

     JC Roda [Holland]

     Real Madrid [Spain]

YPT's Residence Program is not for everyone and is by invitation only. Because of the quality of the trainers involved in the Program, and to provide the best possible training experience, YPT works to identify the best possible players.

Only 45 players will be accepted into each of 3 age groups.

Each year we start the selection process with a clean slate. Players accepted into the Program previously are not guaranteed acceptance in subsequent years.


The Residece Program is planning a return this summer for players born 2003-2005.

All players interested in being invited into this years program must first submit a completed YPT player profile. No fees are required until a player has been accepted. If you are interested in being considered:

"I give a lot of credit to his coach at YPT this past July, Stuart Leicester from Manchester United, for helping Will get selected for the National Team. Stuart spent the week at YPT teaching Will how to play defensive center-mid. Will took this knowledge and played as defensive center-mid during the qualifying process for the National team. I am convinced that the techniques he learned from Stuart helped him to stand out, particularly since Will had never played this position before. If you are in touch with Stuart, please pass along my thanks to him for all his help."
