2023 Spring Accelerated Development Program TRYOUT Registration


Welcome to the 2023 Spring ADP Tryout Registration

DC Soccer Club's Accelerated Development Program (ADP) is the club’s middle tier of game-based programming. Coached by a mix of licensed coaches and volunteers, ADP competes in league-based competitions and holds tryouts twice per year. The program is geared toward motivated players with a drive to learn and improve who are looking to continue their soccer journey.

The main goal of ADP is to provide an opportunity for boys and girls to learn the intricacies of the game while developing tactical and technical skills in a professional organized environment.

The Accelerated Development Program will play its games in the Metro Community League (MCL), an intermediate league for 3rd to 8th boys and girls players in partnership with Alexandria Soccer Association (ASA).

The Spring season will run from March 20 - May 25. ADP will practice twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays and play games in D.C. and Alexandria on Sundays.
