"ASA Reds" will provide Alexandria and surrounding communities an opportunity to come together to experience, learn from and support professional level soccer in our backyard. The ASA Reds player pool may include ASA Reds U23 players (tryouts for the U23 team specifically will be held later this spring).
Who: Tryouts are open to males ages U19+ (current ASA Academy players will need an invitation to tryout). Players selected at tryouts will make up the player pool (in addition to select U23 players from the ASA U23 team).
Tryouts (participants must register for tryouts):

Competition Summary: ASA Reds will compete in various national competitions including the Rowland (U.S. Open Cup) and Stewart (U.S. Amateur Cup) cup. In the Fall and Spring seasons, Reds will compete in Washington Premier League (WPL), a sanctioned USASA Elite Amateur League. It is regarded by many as the DMV’s top league outside the MLS and includes the likes of the Aegean Hawks (2009 USASA Amateur Cup champions) and numerous regional powerhouses with current and former MLS, USL and NASL players.
