Not affiliated with the University College of the same name, Yale School of Mornington Crescent Excellence is the United States' official youth development centre for Mornington Crescent. It has produced several top-5 ranked players in the last few years, most notably the current world U21 champion, Mark Dicks. Students are admitted at 14 years old, and competition is fierce for the twenty places on the gruelling four year course. The school has been considered a great success, and MC players in Britain were recently dismayed when John Major's proposed national sports centre of excellence did not feature Mornington Crescent as one of its chosen study fields.
