Development Academy Registration

April 3rd - May 29th


BOYS & GIRLS : AGES 5-13 : COST $125 (Uniform not included)

Spring 2021 Development Academy is more than just fun recreational  soccer.  Its true soccer development in a non-pressure environment.  Players receive top quality professional training.  No stress! No pressure!

Everyone wants their children to play soccer, play games, play for teams, play in leagues.  No one wants their kids to become better players, develop good soccer skills, invest in the future of the player.  "Sad"

At Doradus FC, our philosophy is talented skilled players make better team players and ultimately enjoy the best soccer has to offer.  "The beautiful game"

FREE SOCCER!  No such thing.  Parents must invest in their children.  Everything cost in America.  So, don't ask for free soccer.  Support  your child!

La Academia de Desarrollo de primavera de 2021 es algo más que un fútbol recreativo divertido.  Su verdadero desarrollo futbolístico en un entorno sin presión.  Los jugadores reciben entrenamiento profesional de primera calidad.  ¡Sin estrés! ¡Sin presión!

Todo el mundo quiere que sus hijos jueguen al fútbol, jueguen, jueguen para equipos, jueguen en ligas.  Nadie quiere que sus hijos se conviertan en mejores jugadores, desarrollen buenas habilidades futbolísticas, inviertan en el futuro del jugador.  "Muy triste"

En Doradus FC, nuestra filosofía es que los jugadores talentosos y hábiles hagan mejores jugadores de equipo y, en última instancia, disfruten de lo mejor que el fútbol tiene para ofrecer.  "Muy buen juego"

¡FÚTBOL GRATIS!  No hay tal cosa.  Los padres deben invertir en sus hijos.  Todo costó en Estados Unidos.  Así que no pidas fútbol gratis.  ¡Apoye a su hijo!




2021 - 2022



U9 - U12  PDP

Development Soccer Program

What sets Doradus apart from the rest?  Our goal for each child is to develop strong highly skilled soccer players, in a safe and fun environment.  The professional soccer Coaches and Technical Directors on our staff, are highly qualified instructors.  Children in our pre-academy / academy train, play and develop a passion for the sport.  Let us prepare your child for his/her successful soccer journey.

How does it work?   We are looking for boys and girls born between 2016 - 2013 (U5-U8).  There are no tryouts and no child will be denied an opportunity to join.  Our coaching staff will offer “Player ID sessions” (Player Identification Sessions) to further develop each child individually.  This gives parents and program managers an opportunity to see if their child is ready to engage in a more structured soccer environment.   “Player pools” will be created from the ID Sessions.  Each player group will enjoy two training sessions during the week, and weekend games in collaboration with other club programs or our In-house matches..  The players will train alongside other Doradus Travel team players and experience a full club oriented program.  Mature U7-U8 players will compete in the EDP Futures Program or other organized competitive programs with Saturday games around the Metro Area,  to further their development in the sport. 

What’s the big picture?  The mission of Doradus’ Pre-Academy,  Academy and  (PDP) Player Development Programs is multifaceted. Emphasis is placed on “individual” player development instead of team development.  A great example of how we do this is utilizing the ‘Player Pool” model.  This model is used successfully at other top club programs around the county.  Skill set development in the areas of: Agility, flexibility, mobility, balance, speed, coordination and motor skills are paramount.  Developing all of these key skills are necessary to become a highly successful soccer player.  Doradus FC will help build your child’s foundation and sound knowledge of the game. 

How are Doradus' Programs different from local Recreational Soccer Programs?  When comparing recreational soccer programs to Pre-Academy, Academy, PDP or travel soccer programs in the country, these programs provide by far  higher skill levels of the development.  In most cases, these focus programs  are more likely to demonstrate better technical skills and sharper knowledge and understanding of the game.  One of the most important advantages of enrolling your child in Doradus'  Programs  is the individualized professional training while having fun.

Doradus Training sessions and League Games?  The primary training sessions are held on  Weekdays  (5:00 pm – 6:30 pm) at Franconia District Park, Springfield VA.   Satellite sessions are held in other surrounding areas in Northern Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia based on field availability and number of players in the pool.  Training locations can also vary depending on availability and weather conditions within these general area.

What is the cost?    The full cost of the regular season is very low (includes training, league play, and one Uniform Kit per player).  Cost will be posted in the each season announcements.


Doradus Specialized Player Development Program!!  PDP

Developed by the Pre-Academy Director and the Club's Technical Director.  This specialized player devel0pment program consist of a year-round selection of training, competing, and enjoyment in fun filled activities.  The children play in a combination of festival events such as summer Kick-It 3v3, 4v4 tournaments, FUTSAL, and the Disney 3v3 Championships each year,   These specialized programs are separate from the regular season fees.  Only serious soccer families willing to commit to the demands of these programs are invited and selected to participate.  A long term commitment and relationship with the club is paramount.
