The TeamRank Top 25 presented by Barca Academy, the comprehensive ranking system for elite club soccer teams nationwide, continues June updates this week with the U13, U14, and U15 boys club soccer teams. We will update our National Top 25 for each age group at least once per month.

While the top teams in the U15 age group wait for the Regional and National events in the coming weeks, many teams stay sharp with local tournaments over the past few weeks. The results of those events helped shaped the Barca Academy TeamRank Top 25 for the U15 Boys Club Soccer Teams in the June edition.
Brausa United Futbol remains the No. 1 team in the Barca Academy TeamRank Top 25 for this month. Brausa won the Potomac Memorial Tournament and looks sharp heading into national events in the near future.
St. Louis Scott Gallagher - Elite 02 moves up to the No. 2 spot in this month’s update. St. Louis Scott Gallagher - Elite won the Missouri State Cup earlier this month and is playing at a very high level at this stage of the season.
Beach FC Gold - Morataya and Ives Estates Thunder are the two new teams in the Barca Academy TeamRank Top 25 this month. Both of the teams recently won high ranking tournaments and earned spots on the national ranking list.
With the Development Academy regular season over, the U14 age group only featured a few games since the last update to the Barca Academy TeamRank Top 25. However, those games did shake-up the list of the top U14 boys club soccer teams in the United States.
FC Dallas, LA Galaxy, and Vardar all retain their spots in the top three. All three teams enjoyed perfect ends to the regular season and look to be teams to watch at the Development Academy Showcase in Indiana.
Atlanta United jumped up the standings in the Barca Academy TeamRank Top 25 thanks to a win over Georgia United as well as a five-game winning streak to end the regular season. The MLS Academy is one of the hottest teams at the end of the season.
Colorado Rapids finished the season with seven points from their final three games, and that was enough to propel the team into the No. 1 spot in the Barca Academy TeamRank Top 25 for June. Rapids were held to a 1-1 draw against Real Colorado but recorded lopsided victories in their other two games over the course of the last month.
LA Galaxy slips down to No. 3 while FC Golden State retains the No. 2 spot in the rankings. Golden State defeated Galaxy 1-0 in the meeting between the two sides a few weeks ago. Santa Barbara Soccer Club jumps into the rankings this month at No. 19 after handing FC Golden State their only loss of the month. Santa Barbara also record a 2-2 draw against LA Galaxy.
New England Revolution and Sockers also moved up the rankings in the Barca Academy TeamRank Top 25 after solid showings over the course of the past month. The Academy teams were undefeated against fierce competition.
Barca Academy TeamRank is the comprehensive team-ranking system devised by TopDrawerSoccer.com to provide an objective and common-sense approach to determining which elite youth soccer teams are the best in the nation.
The rankings, updated monthly, are primarily results-based, with a nod toward the league and championship competitions that emulate how excellence is determined in leading soccer nations around the world.
Tournaments are also included but at a reduced value due to the many mitigating factors involving such events, including attrition and guest players.
A final layer of executive evaluation is provided to account for variables that often impact results, thus ensuring that the monthly lists are not subjective, but are not purely mechanical.
