Travel 2010-11 Boys, with Coach Scott and Coach Omar

Travel Program

Sterling Soccer Travel programs provides an increased level of commitment and cost. The travel teams play in a more competitive environment with a greater level of skill. Players must try out to make the travel team; whereas, all players who register to play recreational soccer are placed on a team. 

Competitive coaching focuses on skill development in the early years and tactical abilities in the later years. And while winning is always our coaches’ game objective, skill development of our players is our primary focus.

Our goal is to develop each player and to ensure each player improves from year to year. Each age group has several teams allowing a player to grow and progress to higher levels. Equal development opportunities are provided to every player on every team regardless of entitlement level.

Sterling Soccer offers opportunities to play in the NCSL league. The National Capital Soccer League (NCSL) is the DC Metro area's premier promotion-relegation soccer league, serving approximately 30,000 travel soccer players every year representing many of the most successful clubs in the nation.
