Washington Spirit Academy is every female soccer player’s “path to the pros”
The Washington Spirit Academy provides year-round opportunities for aspiring female players to learn from the inside out what it takes to become a professional player, all without leaving their current club team.
Year-round opportunities will be provided in the form of camps, clinics, centers, advanced training and communications all designed to develop soccer skills and expertise from all four pillars of the game: Technical Ability, Tactical Ability, Physical Ability and Psychological Strength. Programs are lead by the Washington Spirit coaching staff with the occasional player appearance.
In the summer we field a full suite of USL Super-Y League teams from under-12 through under-17, all with the goal of identify the best prospective players to continue to develop during the college careers in hopes of one day playing professionally for our NWSL professional team.
The summer program operates with a primary function of improving each player’s technical ability and understanding of working in a team environment. A goal is returning the players to their club teams in the fall better and more fit than they were at the end of the spring season.
