The implementation of the Development Academy and the broad expansion of a national youth scouting network have made the final versions of teams selected considerably less vulnerable to credible criticism from the vast youth soccer marketplace.
The training centers have been an important step by USSF to take more ownership of the youth national team identification process, which previously was farmed out almost entirely to the Olympic Development Program run by U.S. Youth Soccer. This led to a certain amount of confusion in the marketplace, but also a widespread feeling that national team coaches were getting a very incomplete view of the national playing pool by the time the process reached them for team selection.
