In 2012, Italian professional club RES Roma Calcio Femminile, the women’s side of powerhouse AS Roma, approached AC Cugini President Fabio Diletti to develop an all girls soccer academy in the United States and serve as its Technical Director to further expose American players to Italian player development methodology . In 2013, AC Cugini launched RES Roma USA, based in Virginia the first organization in America to be affiliated with a professional Italian women’s soccer club. The objective of the all girls academy is to strengthen female player development to prepare athletes for high school play, college level play, or play at the professional level in the United States or Italy. All players will receive guidance on retaining U.S. college/university athletic scholarship status.
