DMV FC travel teams completed their inaugural season this month as a new club. From individual to team successes, it’s been a stellar start to our new program and we look forward to continued growth!

Individual Highlights

  • Ella Valente (04G Crush) committed to Virginia Tech. She’s a forward graduating in 2022 who will head down to Blacksburg next fall.
  • High School soccer awards
    • Delena Bucaj (Bishop O’Connell) faced Kylie Fischer (Potomac) to win the ISL State Championship. Delena was a captain for the 2021 season. Both play for the 04G Crush.

Program Highlights

  • Rec program kicked off with their first fall season. Dozens of players in three programs for players 3-9 years old participated in training and games with the DMV FC staff.
  • Held our first Summerfest kickoff event. It was a great way to begin the club and get to know the community.
  • Held our annual golf event fundraiser with Total Futbol, raising funds to benefit our scholarship program that covers the cost of travel and rec soccer for athletes in need.
