With the start of the 2019-2020 club season, TopDrawerSoccer unveils the first update to the TDS TeamRank Top 25. This first update is classified as the September update to the club soccer team ranking. In the debut update, all six age groups for boys club soccer teams between U13-U18 were ranked. For October updates, TeamRank will be divided between a younger and older group. TeamRank is updated once a month during the club soccer season from September to June.
For consistency sake, teams in the Boys Development Academy U18/19 age group are ranked in the U18 age group. Teams in the Boys Development Academy U16/17 age group are ranked in the U16 age group.

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.
