[DEVELOPMENT ACADEMY] The San Juan Soccer Club and Orlando City will join the U.S. Soccer Development Academy for the 2012-13 season

The San Juan SC, which will join the Northwest Division of the West Conference, was established in 1978 in the Sacramento Valley area. Among its former players are MLS youngsters Jalil Anibaba and Amobi Okugo.

Florida-based Orlando City, connected to the reigning USL PRO champion, merged with Central Florida's largest youth soccer organization, the Central Florida Kraze/Krush, in late February of this year and acquired the Florida Soccer Alliance (FSA) in December 2011 to create a youth powerhouse at the newly named Orlando City Youth Soccer Club.

Orlando City will play in the Southeast Division of the East Conference.

MLS clubs Montreal and Portland are also adding academy teams to the Development Academy in 2012-13.

In other Development Academy news, Empire United, based out of Upstate New York, will change its name to Revolution Empire, as part of the agreement with MLS's New England Revolution.
