Excellence in Coaching & Education
Community, Leadership, Mentorship, and Excellence in soccer development will equal maximum results no matter what the individual’s desire and potential. This coaching approach makes our players feel worthy, encouraging them to strive for personal excellence. They start to see their own potential as a player and a person, striving to reach their individual goals. Many of our players report that our Club is has made them “look differently at the game” and as a result, they look at themselves differently.
Language & Culture
Montgomery County, MD is one of the most diverse counties in the country. Add to it Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, in addition to the neighboring counties, and we pride ourselves on being a club for all. Our coaches are also diverse as they represent various countries around the world.
Sense of Community
Sandy Spring, MD is a small town of only 2,855 residents and our primary practice location of Sandy Spring Friends School is a Quaker school with a community feel and a mantra of “Let Your Lives Speak”. Although many of our players come from neighboring cities such as Olney, Silver Spring and as far west as Gaithersburg, as far north as Columbia, and as far east as Laurel, they all love our community feel.We believe that a sense of belonging is key to our player’s success. We welcome any player, at any level to our club and there is a pathway of development for everyone. The pace at which each player develops will vary, but no matter what the pace is our coaches will strive to help each player to succeed.
Each summer, the club will take selected travel teams to South America. The purpose of the annuals trips outside of the United States is to provide an opportunity for our players to be seen and evaluated, exposing them to a challenging and professional training environment, and to compete internationally. These life-changing experiences allow players to start to become more independent and gain memories that they will never forget.
