This program is for ages 5-7. Our main focus at this level is to provide a fun, engaging atmosphere for the young athlete. Providing each athlete with soccer skills, the idea of teamwork, and social skills in a safe environment is essential to us. For this age group, we want to give each child the opportunity to find their own success. Success in this age group can come in so many forms and we want to help each athlete find achievements that they can be proud of!
Our recreational program (Ages 8 - 13) is geared towards the family and player that is looking to play soccer in a laid back atmosphere. This is an activity that they enjoy; however, it is not a massive commitment for them. Our rec program will provide one clinic during the weekday, and one "pickup match" over the weekend. This will allow players to meet new people and play with someone that they did not play with the previous week.
Select Teams (U9 - U17)
What does a select team entail? In order to play on a select team for Brookland FC, you must tryout and be "selected." Tryouts will take place throughout the year, and multiple coaches will be at each one. Practices will take place 2 times a week and there will be one match on the weekend. Once you are selected to a team, it is our expectation that players will consistently attend practices and games. Being apart of our team, is a commitment, and we expect each player to honor it.
Select teams will practice in NE Washington, DC; however, our teams will play games in either SAM Select in Germantown, MD or they will compete in EDP which will see half of our games being played in NE Washington, DC and the other half at an away field. Our goal is to provide a high level program for our Select Team Players that is challenging, engaging, and meaningful. We want to create not only a better soccer player, but also a better person. The character of our players is just as important, if not more important, than being a top-rated player. Playing for Brookland FC will provide each player the confidence and the fortitude to conquer future challenges they face. Each coach on staff strives to embody these characteristics and will be great role models for our young athletes!
