The Montreal Impact Academy has two main methods of recruitment

1. Open detection camps

These tryouts are organized by the Montreal Impact and open to all the players (foreign players also). The training sessions help the technical staff identify players that fit the Academy’s profile. The tryouts are carried out over a few stages. Registration can only be done online on the Academy’s website (registration fee to pay online).

2. Screening cells

Our coaches and scouts are present throughout the province, and our vast network of contacts within the Montreal Impact organization allows for the club to be on the lookout for players in all regions and all competitions in Quebec. When discovered, a player is offered a chance to play with one of the Academy teams, or offered a chance to attend one of the detection camps.
