What is DC Stoddert Recreational Soccer?

                                                                                                   

DC Stoddert Soccer's Recreational Program serves more than 6,000 players each fall and spring. With the help of dedicated volunteers and professional trainers, the Recreational Program provides team-based learning experiences for children between the ages of 4-19, and a girls-only soccer program for girls in second grade through high school. The focus of the recreational soccer experience is on personal development and enjoyment of the game rather than winning. Nearly half of all recreational players are girls, making DC Stoddert Soccer the largest youth sports program for girls in the District of Columbia.

Throughout the course of a school year, the club organizes more than 4,000 games a year, and virtually all the work that goes into the preparation for those games is done by a corps of more than 1000 volunteers.  Volunteers coach and referee games, distribute uniforms, prepare fields and equipment, create schedules and rosters.
