USL Super-20s: The second team in our player development pyramid below the professional level. Any player who does not turn 20 prior to January 1, 2013 is eligible. The team plays in the USL Super-20 league, and will frequently train with the W-League team. The season runs from June 1 – July 31.
Playing as D.C. United Women Super-20 in 2012, the first-year team went all the way to the USL Super-20 North American Championship Final, losing to Colorado Rapids Women 1-0. The team is full of active Division 1 college players of scholarship caliber, as well as youth internationals. Recently, one team member – Monica Mendez – picked up full national team caps playing for Portugal. Players on the Super-20 may be called up to the W-League team during the season as well.

TRYOUTS – TUESDAY, MAY 14th
The Washington Spirit will hold the final open tryout for the 2013 Super-20 team on Tuesday, May 14. The tryout session is scheduled from 6:00PM to 8:00PM at the Maryland SoccerPlex (Field #14) in Boyds, MD. Players must register in order to participate.
This year’s Super-20 team, called “Washington Spirit Academy”, will serve the region’s top college-bound and active college players who still have several years left before graduation from the college game. Interested players must complete the online tryout registration form along with one-time $50 registration fee in order to be eligible to participate. Previously registered players are not to pay registration fee a second time. Everyone is encouraged to arrive 30 minutes prior for check-in, warm-up, and stretching. Maryland SoccerPlex Field #14 is a grass field, so players should bring proper footwear to the tryout.
