While it’s shrinking to the point of nonexistence, MLS’s academy structure is fragmented, allowing each club to create its own pay-for-play model to fit its market. This is a list of each club’s pay scale (or lack thereof) for DA entry for the 2013-2014 season.
This does not take into account scholarships, which most clubs dole out to qualified individuals. These numbers are based on the most recent annual metrics available, and these fees can change in either direction from one season to the next. In terms of the fee number, this is also restricted to the yearly costs required of players that includes facilities, travel, equipment, tournaments and more. This is culled only from the U14-U18 level, the range for eligibility in the Development Academy. Source articles have been provided where available.
