The A3 Soccer Travel Program is one of the most respected and longest running soccer programs in Anne Arundel County. Highly organized, well coached and professionally trained boys and girls teams compete through Maryland State Youth Soccer Association and US Club Soccer in age groups from U09 to U18. Teams participate in Region 1 Champions League, Super Y, EDP, NCSL, BBSL, CMSSL, and other leagues.
Affiliations with Barclay's Premier League West Ham United's world-famous International Academy, Coerver, Challenger, and DMV Training offer the most professional and best possible training resources and techniques available in the local area for the use by our travel teams. Licensed volunteer coaches and professional trainers have consistently offered the best quality of training, and the results are starting to show.
In addition to being a privilege and an honor for our club, the relationship with England's West Ham United is a great development in that it provides excellent opportunities for our players. Just to be a part of the same academy that gave us Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick, and Jermaine Dafoe is fantastic. It is a testament to the club’s commitment to ensure each and every player has the opportunity to achieve success on the field.
Our commitment to families is easy to see. We make every effort to keep it affordable by keeping costs in the hundreds and not thousands. We work with families who want to play multiple sports. And more importantly, we keep all club activities centrally located so families can stay in one place.
A3 Soccer teams play outdoor schedules in the fall and spring. Many teams also play a winter indoor schedule at the several of the indoor facilities in Anne Arundel and Howard counties.
If you have specific questions about the Program, please contact the Director of Coaching or one of the Travel Commisioners.
