RES Roma USA Girls Academy

 In 2012, Italian professional club RES Roma Calcio Femminile, the women’s side of powerhouse AS Roma, approached Fabio Diletti to develop an all girls soccer academy in the United States and serve as its Technical Director. In 2013, AC Cugini launched RES Roma USA, 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. RES Roma USA members ages 17 and older have the opportunity to live and play professional soccer in Italy and, if they choose, also attend the University of Roma, at ½ the cost of U.S. colleges and universities. All players will receive guidance on retaining U.S. college/university athletic scholarship status.
