Soccer Academy began in 1982 in Northern Virginia with a vision to provide opportunities for young players to play, learn and enjoy soccer.
Today, Soccer Academy’s programs reach out to some 5,000 players each year. From four-year olds just learning the game, to 14-year-olds dreaming of playing for the U.S. National Team, to 18-year olds preparing for a college career, players of all abilities can benefit from a Soccer Academy program.
Soccer Academy also has gained a strong reputation as a reputable resource for club and league administration and development. Over the years, Soccer Academy has consulted with dozens of clubs, advising them on how to implement player and coach development programs, how to run a tournament, how best to register players, among others.
