AS Roma USA Academy
Crossfire Premier has a direct, year-round partnership with AS Roma of the Italian Serie A, with a focus on identifying and developing top-tier players. The initiative was to create a comprehensive partnership program, all with the objective of developing elite players. Elements include ongoing coaching development and exchanges, tailored physical performance programs and team training and competitions in both the United States and Europe. Each year, identified Crossfire Premier players have the opportunity to train and trial with AS Roma teams in Rome, and to represent AS Roma USA in major events (Disney, Dale Farm Milk Cup, Madrid Cup). Players are identified through Development Academy events, which are scouted by AS Roma staff, site visits from AS Roma coaches and through their participate in AS Roma USA Academy events, such as the U-12/U-13 Academy event in Lakewood Ranch, FL, each December, which coincides with the Development Academy U-15/16 and U-17/18 Winter Showcase.
Last, the partnership includes the implementation and use of Mister Calcio, a complete player-development program designed by AS Roma for its youth sector.
