Guam - About 100 elite youth soccer players have been selected to participate in the Guam Football Association's National Academy for both boys and girls who have been handpicked by licensed coaches to participate in the program. The athletes range from the Under-8 division to the Under-14 division. The program is year-round and organized in eight-week modules with breaks in between.

For five days a week, the athletes engage in two-and-a-half hour sessions at GFA run by GFA licensed coaches. The next open tryouts for the National Academy will be held next year. The National Academy also will act as a feeder program for the island's national teams, starting from the U13 level up to the Matao and the Masakåda, the island's senior men's and women's national team, respectively.
