Purpose: As part of “Project Change the Game Now,” the Washington Spirit has created a Market Training program for advanced player development. This is a unique program that offers a Path 2 Pro perspective for learning what it takes to be a professional player in all aspects of player development both on and off the field. This program is intended to bring together the TOP players in the market at U17 & U19 as part of an identification process for the Washington Spirit and US Soccer for potential US Soccer Youth National Team selections and future NWSL professional prospects.
Identification & Selection Process: This is an INVITATION ONLY program where club directors are notified of player(s) selected and given registration instructions. Each session is separate. Players are invited to subsequent sessions based on performance standards.
- 24 Field Players
- 4 Goalkeepers
Session Details: The program will include both classroom and field sessions that will be directed by our professional coaching staff with support from our First Team players when they are in market. Sessions will cover advanced educational topics that will include direction from our High-Performance Coach.
2022 ADP session schedule is TBA.
The Washington Spirit is excited and proud to offer this Market Identification Program to help make a difference in advanced player development.
