While our Annandale soccer program has won 7 national championships and numerous regional, state and local championships . . . our primary focus has always been to provide children ages 4 to 19 with the opportunity to have fun playing soccer at the highest level they can learn to play at. We take great pride in all of our players including those who started as recreational soccer players and went on to play high level travel soccer, for their high school, in college, for domestic and professional soccer teams as well as for the U.S. National Team. Our ABGC coaches and staff have repeatedly been recognized and honored at the local, state, and national levels for their contributions to the game.
As a coach your primary contribution to each child is teaching life's lessons like respect for others, fair play, working as a member of a team, what you can accomplish by making an effort to learn to be better and how doing something you enjoy can be fun! If you can do these things then ABGC has a coaching soccer education program to help you learn to teach our children basic soccer skills, game understanding and a love of the game.
