Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Recreational Soccer (ages 5-19)

The ASA recreational league stresses development and equal-participation. The ASA "house” recreational program serves ages five through twelve with teams competing weekly against other ASA teams. The Suburban Friendship League (SFL) is also part of the ASA recreational soccer program and serves older players, ages thirteen to nineteen, by giving them the opportunity to compete against other local soccer clubs in the Northern Virginia region. All recreational league teams are coordinated and coached by parent and community volunteers.

Population(s) Served

Each year, players are given the opportunity to try out for ASA’s Academy soccer program, which includes professionally coached advanced teams for boys and girls ages U9 through U18. The travel program enters teams in the National Capital Soccer League (NCSL), the Eastern Development Program (EDP), Easter Region League (ERL) and the Old Dominion Soccer League (ODSL). Participation on Academy teams is based on ability, which is determined by coaches at tryouts.

Population(s) Served

In addition to the recreational and travel teams, ASA offers supplemental skills training programs year-round for all age groups. Program offerings are as follows: U5/U6 Skills, U7/U8 Challenge, U9-U12 Player Development Program, and Goalkeeper Training. ASA also offers coaching clinics, referee instruction, festival events and parent education programs intermittently throughout the year.

Population(s) Served

The ASA Tots Soccer program is a unique opportunity to introduce children to soccer. The program is designed specifically for our youngest players, ages 2 through 4 years old. The classes focus on developing motor and listening skills, introducing very basic ball skills through fun activities, and exposing participants to a group environment with children of similar age. Our main goal is to provide a fun and comfortable environment for both the children and parents.

Population(s) Served

ASA offers a program called TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer), which is a community-based soccer program for young athletes with disabilities. The goal of TOPSoccer is to enable children with disabilities to become valued members of the ASA soccer family. The ASA TOPSoccer program focuses on team participation and having fun. The program is available for children ages five through eighteen and their families.
