Spring 2018 Supplemental Academy Tryouts

The club would like to invite out interested players for supplemental Academy tryouts for the Spring 2018 season. The program hosts its main tryouts at the end of May and June. During the Winter months various age groups may have mid-year openings where they hope to add players interested in learning from our professional coaches, practicing 2-3 times a week and playing games against competition in neighboring cities like Arlington, Springfield, Mclean and Potomac. We encourage any child interested in checking out the program to join for a practice!

It is important that evaluation criteria are transparent so that each player/parent fully understands the professional coaches’ recommendation for placement within the ASA Academy or other programs. At tryouts, players will be evaluated on the following, among other things:

  • Speed: Technical speed, pure speed, and speed of execution and/or speed of thought
  • Technique: First touch/passing skills under pressure
  • Character: Work-rate, coachability, desire (Do they work off the ball? Do they enjoy the game and have a love for the sport?)

If you would like to inquire about age group openings and/or set up a supplemental tryout for your son/daughter, please contact Ryan Rich (Academy Director) at
