[NEXT GENERATION SERIES]The Next Generation Series will be split into two conferences as it prepares for its debut in August.  The Southeast Conference will feature three divisions and clubs from Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and the Carolinas. The Mid-South Conference will include clubs from Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.
 
The NextGen development program, a joint venture between USL and IMG Academy, has lined up Atlanta Fire United, Georgia Rush, Jacksonville Youth Soccer Club, Knoxville Soccer Academy and FC Nashville for the inaugural NextGen season.

The format will consist of U-12 and U-14 boys and girls teams participating in an eight-month season beginning in August and culminating in April
 
“We are excited about the initial list of clubs that have been accepted into the Next Generation Series, and we’re looking forward to additional announcements as preparations for the 2013-14 season begin,” NextGen Director Abe Thompson said in a statement. “The idea is to give the players an avenue to develop through challenging competition, while exposing them at a younger age to the sort of evaluation and education they will encounter as they progress beyond youth club soccer - to youth national teams, college, professional teams, and the full national team.”
