SOCCER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
AFA’s Youth Development Program is focused on developing players from U7-U18. Pre-academy is our youngest group, ages 5-11, in this stage we focus on teaching all the soccer fundamentals: ball control, dribbling, and advancing to first touch, turns, passing, and shooting. At the Academy stage, ages 12-17, we will continue to prioritize the technical development with the addition of field awareness, decision making, and team tactics. Teams will participate in one of the three following leagues: Elite Development Program (EDP), National Capital Soccer League (NCSL), or Montgomery Soccer Inc. (MSI Classic).

"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
"Our son has been with Coach Toti for 5 seasons. We have been thrilled with AFA and our son continues to love soccer and having Toti as his coach.Toti not only focuses on developing the soccer skills, but he also emphasizes sportsmanship, leadership, working together as a team and overall physical well-being. This is evident as a high percentage of the players return each season." Christine Lorenz
