Select Soccer: Players must be invited to join. Tryouts are open to everyone: Link to Tryout
Our select teams practice twice per week, play in eight league matches, and play in at least one tournament per season. The season lasts 10 weeks long; however, we have preseason in which players can come to get extra touches, fitness, structured practice setting, and motivation to get ready for the season ahead. Our teams compete in NCSL (National Capitol Soccer League), which can be at a high level or at a level that is right above recreational level depending on the level of the team.
Our coaches are licensed with US Soccer, and they have the training and the ability to communicate effectively with children. The coaching director, Tom Walsh, oversees all coaches and there is a simple philosophy within the club. Create an environment that allows children to have fun, holds them accountable in regards to being a good teammate, and the players strive to better themselves as people and as players. Parents must be committed to this and must be on time, adhere to club rules, and must foster a cohesive learning environment for all players involved, not just their own.
U9 - U12 is strictly developmental. All players get equal playing time regardless of ability. However, the only caveat is if players are not showing up or if they are being a disruptive teammate in practice in games. No child, even if they are Lionel Messi Jr. comes before the club.

We do offer families who make under $95,000 a year a fee waiver. Those families are responsible for paying $500 for the entire soccer year and club dues are included in this cost.
U13 - U19 is when the ability and the higher expectations come into play. Players that participate this level are expected to earn their place in the team day in and day out. Players must show some grit, proper fitness levels, proper habits, display strong qualities in their character, and ultimately be an ambassador of the club.
These teams will compete in NCSL, NCSL Regional tournament, practice twice per week and have a third fitness day with coach Tom on Friday evenings. Fitness Fridays are optional; however, they are recommended.
