My child has never played soccer before; will Washington United's Rec program be a good fit?
It is the mission of the Washington Premier to provide players a place to play regardless of their skill level. Our Washington United program is for those players new to the game and/or who want to play with friends and neighbors. The mission of Washington United’s rec program is to make sure players have fun, while learning basics about the game of soccer and good sportsmanship. Winning is not the focus.
