DMV Soccer Organizations Unite in Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic to Support the Region’s Soccer Community

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, area soccer clubs and organizations have joined to form DMV UNITED. The group consists of clubs large and small that provide soccer programming, coaching, recreational leagues and travel programs for the area’s youth. Just as professional leagues have currently suspended play, the pandemic is also affecting the area’s youth soccer programs. DMV UNITED formed to provide organizations with a way to share ideas, resources, and best practices in these unprecedented times. Thomas Park, Executive Director of Alexandria Soccer Association said, “The DMV UNITED initiative has brought together organizations across the beltway region to join in sharing best practices for supporting player development remotely and keeping them active at home. By sharing these best practices, along with club management tactics, the DMV United team stands ready to deliver impactful programming the moment it is safe for our community to return to play.”Read more
