Travel Soccer Program

 

Philosophy
At Potomac Soccer we value every player’s participation in our program, and are committed to ensuring that all our players have an enjoyable, challenging and rewarding experience with our club.   Our coaches have extensive experience in the game, as well as some of the highest certifications of any club in the country.  Most hold the highest levels of US Soccer Federation National Coaching Licenses, and have many years of teaching and coaching experience.  We are a club that prioritizes a player’s growth and development as a player and as a person, and believe that many life lessons and valuable personal qualities and characteristics are taught through competitive sports in a fun and challenging environment.  
All of our teams will practice at least 2x per week, and all players are expected to demonstrate a high level of commitment to the team.  
Attendance is expected at all practices, events, and tournaments.   
Practices for our younger teams are typically in the Bethesda/Potomac area, while our older age groups will practice throughout Montgomery County.
