Training Program Questions

What is the difference between a Training Program and the Camps?
The primary differences between the two programs are: Training Programs are for boys aged U9-U13, and intermediate/advanced skill level. We have a handful of our U12/13 Pre-Academy players that participate in the TP. The TP is great supplemental training to those who are playing on travel teams. The TP is a six week, two hour session which runs on Sunday nights quarterly. The TP can be used by the D.C. United coaching staff to find talented young players to be invited into their Academy teams.
Where is D.C. United’s Training Complex?
The field is a block north of RFK Stadium. Directions
Is there parking at the field?
Yes.
Can parents watch?
Yes. Parents are required to stay on the east side of the field (parking lot side), or in the metal stands.
Are there Training Programs for girls?
No. The Training Program is specifically to further develop boys.
What are the make up dates on the website?
Make up dates are to be used in case a session is canceled due to an issue such as weather.
If we miss a session due to a scheduling issue, can the make up date be used?
No. The make up dates are only used for the entire group, and if a session is completely canceled.
My son is 8 years old, and the Training Program is for 9 year olds, can I register? And how do I register since Korrio won’t let me?
Yes. As long as they are within one year of the age they can register for the Training Program. To register, please change the birth year to let Korrio accept your son/daughters age.
Who are the coaches for the camp program?
The Camps are lead by pre-academy and academy coaching staff. We also maintain a staff list of quality coaches who have been involved in prior camps, training programs, or academy team coaching.
