The FC Dulles Travel Soccer Academy

The FC Dulles Travel Soccer Academy is an intensive, highly demanding, club-centric player development-focused program. 

Highly skilled players from around the Chantilly/Northern Virginia area come to FC Dulles to learn from our curriculum, improve as players, learn our style of play from our experienced coaches, compete at the appropriate levels, and most importantly develop a love and passion for the game of soccer!

Coaches select and invite players to their team based on the following (not in order):

  • skill level,
  • game, and spatial awareness,
  • soccer growth mindset (ability to accept challenges, learn, and improve),
  • love and passion for the game (including respect for teammates and coaches),
  • mental toughness,
  • Ability to be coached (to listen, and apply guidance, feedback, and instruction provided from the coach),
  • Give full commitment and maximum effort at every practice & game

Players will be placed on an appropriate level team with player development as the first priority.

Players are expected to be committed to participating with FC Dulles and their team activities for the entire seasonal year (mid-June to mid-June of the following year).

Need-based scholarships are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Scholarship recipients will be required to pay at least 50% of their tuition. Application instructions are available when registering.
