Our 2020 Youth Training Centers are cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. In accordance with the Maryland Sports Commission and Montgomery County Executive Order 087-20, soccer continues to be restricted as a high-risk sport.
The Youth Training Centers require player engagement that exceeds the limitations of no-contact skill building and drills. They involve participant, coaching and support personnel that cannot be accommodated within the Montgomery County outdoor gathering guidelines and size restrictions.
We regret this decision but player and staff safety remain our overarching focus. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate the pathways to returning to play.
Please contact our youth sports directors at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details and questions.
This year, the Washington Spirit will offer Training Center programs for rising U11 – U14 and U15 – U19 players. We are seeking motivated young players who are looking to improve their game. As part of our Training Center programs, you will be able to attend pro-training sessions, get autographs with pro-players, train with the pro-staff, and attend a pro-home match.
This unique experience will offer an insider look at what it takes to be a professional player while being developed in a professional training environment. By attending the Washington Spirit Training Centers, participants are sure to improve technically and tactically while learning what it takes to Train Like A Pro in a professional environment with experienced player development coaches.
