Euro 2016 glory and the formidable current team are thanks to investment in youth and coaching 20 years ago

t is one of the the most familiar images of European Championship history. With Portugal closing out the final in Saint-Denis, Cristiano Ronaldo buzzes down the touchline, gesticulating wildly to his teammates with neither a limp nor the troublesome left leg that he continually clutches fettering his energy.

Both in the breathless tension of the Stade de France that night and re-watching now, it feels as if Ronaldo is the coach. It was not the contribution to the Euro 2016 final that their captain and most talismanic player had imagined but despite his truncated involvement on the field, after Dimitri Payet ploughed through him early in the game, he was involved right to the end.

Academies we have visited, observed and learned from:

A 'youth professional' is a player between ages of 6 and 18 who has been identified by professional club as someday having the potential as making it as a full-time professional player. These players are trained, day-in and day-out, using the best at latest development methods, philosophies, exercises and techniques by some of the best youth trainers in the world.

Over the last 17+ years YPT has traveled extensively across Europe to clubs such as Real Madrid [Spain], Club Brugge [Belgium], Inter Milan [Italy], SL Benfica [Portugal], PSV Eindhoven [Holland], Manchester United [England], AC Milan [Italy], Ajax of Amsterdam [Holland], Bayern Munich [Germany] and others for the sole purpose of observing and learning how young players are trained and developed at the absolute highest level of the sport. We have been extremely fortunate to doors opened to us that don't normally get opened to outsiders and we feel a strong obligation to pass on as much of what we have learned as we can to thise who can use it most: Americas better young players and coaches.

I really think that the reason for Joseph's success on the National Team and in Europe is because of the good training habits he has been exposed to at YPT.

Your training is top notch. The kids I talked to really liked it and would like for you to come back.

We don't even see anything like this in Europe.

From all that I can gather, YPT appears to be THE best camp in the USA. Two players on my team who attended the camp in 2007 told me that the quality of training and players at YPT is miles ahead of any other camp they've been to. forums
