Next Generation International was born when, at the age of fifteen, founder Billy Hartman was one of a few American soccer players to have the unique opportunity to train at an English Premier League professional youth academy. Training during the summer of 1980 at Aston Villa FC Academy was a defining moment in not only his development as a soccer player, but also his growth as a person. That summer was truly an experience of a lifetime for Billy and the true catalyst to what is now Next Generation International.
In 2002, the partnership with Adidas was formed and what went on to become Next Generation International was launched. At that time, Billy knew that with the partnership and commitment of adidas to grassroots US soccer, the business could become a leader in the world of international youth development. Over two decades later, his original vision has proven to be true – there is an insatiable desire in the players, coaches and parents of America to expose their children to the best that our sport has to offer and who share our passion for the beautiful game.
