The FC Dulles Travel Soccer Academy

The FC Dulles Travel Soccer Academy is an intensive, highly demanding, club-centric player development-focused program. Players register, are evaluated primarily through open tryouts in mid-April, and if selected, invited to be on a team for the following seasonal year (June 15-June 14). The Club offers rolling tryouts throughout the year for teams with open roster spots. 

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 high 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.

FC Dulles Referral Program- Bring Players to FC Dulles and Save on Tuition!

FC Dulles is excited to introduce the new Referral Program. You know first-hand how much fun your kids have when they're playing soccer alongside friends and how much more convenient it is for you when there are soccer carpool options with nearby neighbors. With this in mind, and with the goal of growing FC Dulles, we are pleased to introduce a new reward program - THE FC DULLES REFERRAL PROGRAM!

This was created for players/families who bring new players to FC Dulles soccer programs. We have seen how effective spreading our programs through word of mouth advertising has been, and how much it can benefit families and players. Because of that now we want to reward these parents.

If you bring players to FC Dulles and they sign-up, and submit your name in the online referral section when registering, and pay their tuition fees, then you will be eligible for the referral bonus. Rewards will only be processed when the referral pays in full or at least four months if they are on an installment plan.

REFERRAL REWARD AMOUNT:

  1. Applied to any outstanding balances at FC Dulles for the current season.
  2. Any reward balance will be applied to the tuition of the next season* or program with FC Dulles.

*A season for the Travel Academy Program is considered a full seasonal year (i.e. June 2022-June 2023).

If you bring:

  • NEW players to the FC Dulles Travel Academy program: $100/player($50 if Spring season).
  • NEW players to the FC Dulles ADAP program (U7 & U8): $50/player ($25 if Spring season).
  • NEW players to the FC Dulles REC Academy program (Micro, REC 1, SFL): $25/player.
  • NEW players to the FC Dulles Eaglet Academy: $15/player

IF NEW PLAYER REGISTERS FOR ANY FC DULLES PROGRAMS OR EVALUATIONS WITHOUT MENTIONING YOUR NAME OR YOUR CHILD'S NAME THE FIRST TIME THEY INITIATE CONTACT WITH FC DULLES, YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A REFERRAL BONUS REWARD FOR THAT PLAYER.

Soccer is more fun with friends! It's EASY to refer your friends, neighbors, and classmates! Here are some ideas on how to spread the word:

  2. Facebook! - Share on your Facebook page with a small testimonial about why your child loves playing soccer for FC Dulles!
  3. Have your player hand out fliers to their friends in the neighborhood.
  4. Ask your child's teacher if you can put the FC Dulles flier in their class Friday Folder
  5. Day Care
  6. Other sports teams
