Academy Supplemental Tryouts Available


2019 Supplemental Academy Tryouts Available

During the season ASA offers supplemental tryouts for our Academy program on a rolling basis for all ages. The program operates on a July—July calendar year with regular tryouts taking place in May and June. Supplemental tryouts take place at any point during the season at a team's practice session. A coach may request that a player attend two or three practice sessions with his or her team before a recommendation is made.

Academy teams practice three times a week, compete in either the Club Champions League, National Capital Soccer League, Old Dominion Soccer League or EDP National League (depending on the level and age of the team), and participate in three to four tournaments a year. Our U12+ Red teams also compete in the Virginia Youth Soccer State Cup Championship. 

At tryouts, players will be evaluated on the following, among other things:

  • Speed: Technical speed, pure speed, and speed of execution and/or speed of thought
  • Technique: First touch/passing skills under pressure
  • Character: Work-rate, coachability, desire (Do they work off the ball? Do they enjoy the game and have a love for the sport?)

*Please note that placement to a team mid-season is dependant on roster space. 

If you would like to inquire about age group openings and/or set up a supplemental tryout for your son or daughter, please contact Tommy Park (Academy Director) at
