In an era of cost-free academies, D.C. United is one of only two that still has any kind of fee for their regular academy.

There are plenty of metrics by which one can measure the success of MLS Academies. But by at least some of those measures, D.C. United has the most successful academy so far: Andy Najar has been lighting up the Belgian league and may be moving to a higher league this window, and Bill Hamid is the best goalkeeper in MLS and is starting to get traction within the national team setup.
