SOCCER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

AFA’s Youth Development Program focuses on developing players from U7 to U18.

 

Pre-academy is where we teach all the fundamentals of soccer. They're our youngest group, and they're ages 5-11! We focus on ball control, dribbling to first touch, turns for passing or shooting - it's a lot of fun because these kids are little sponges who love learning something new every day.

The Academy stage, ages 12-17, will continue to prioritize technical development with the addition of field awareness, decision making, and team tactics.

 

Teams will compete in one of the three following leagues: Elite Development Program (EDP), National Capital Soccer League (NCSL) or Montgomery Soccer Inc. (MSI Classic).

Testimonials 

"I'm so lucky to have found Coach Toti. He knows how to build a solid staff, his teams, and instill individual thinking and personal growth in the boys. He is a great mentor for my son and the team. He built our team from the ground up into a winning team, but more importantly for me is the life lessons he provides. My son is in good hands." Lee Sobel
