The FC Dulles Travel Soccer Academy

The FC Dulles Travel Soccer Academy is an intensive, highly demanding, club-centric player development-focused program. Players registger, are evaluated in the late Spring time-frame, and if selected, invited to form teams for the following Fall/Spring season. 

Highly skilled players from the Chantilly, Centreville, Herndon, Reston, Fairfax, Clifton, and Vienna areas come to FC Dulles to engage our curriculum, improve as players, learn our style of play from our experienced coaches, compete at the highest levels, and most importantly develop a love and passion for the game of soccer.

Coaches select players based on skill level, game, and spatial awareness, soccer growth mindset, love of the game, mental toughness, and coachability. Players will be placed on an appropriate level team with player development as the first priority. Most Coaches are licensed, have extensive knowledge, passion, and experience in the game, have criminal background checks, are SafeSport compliant, have concussion awareness training and are expected to follow the club’s curriculum, playing philosophy, and style of play. Academy coaches report directly to the Club Technical Director.

Players are expected to be committed to participating with FC Dulles and their team activities for the Fall/Spring seasonal year. 

Need-based scholarships are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Parents of scholarship recipients are expected to volunteer in some capacity at the club's discretion to support the club's programs.

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.
