We’re doing more than just teaching kids to play soccer. Our coaches motivate campers through our reward points system, emphasizing leadership and teamwork, rather than just being the “best” player on a team. The curriculum will focus on fast-paced, gamified drills and encouraging all campers to have fun throughout the week! Expect your camper to be tired out at the end of the day, and excited to head back to camp the next day.

Age Levels

Young athletes perform best when they feel confident and comfortable. For that reason, we divide our camp into age-appropriate levels. Each level teaches a unique set of skills and encourages its own degree of competition. This also ensures campers receive a new D.C. United Camps experience each year!

For our youngest campers, our focus is to create an enjoyable experience centered around the fundamentals of the game. Using competitions and fun-filled exercises, we aim to engage and excite them while also educating them on the game of soccer.

As campers progress beyond the beginner level, we look to reinforce the fundamentals while increasing the pace of drills. Our curriculum aims to build confidence and gamifying drills to keep campers learning but also having fun!

For campers maturing alongside the game of soccer, our curriculum shifts to introducing variations of drills to reinforce proper mechanics and techniques on the field. We place a strong focus on player growth while they have the chance to try out each position on the field.
