Metro United

Metro United Soccer Academy provides a unique, holistic approach to player development to prepare elite girls youth soccer players to play at the next level. Based in Reston, Virginia, Metro United players are given access to all the tools needed to compete in the highest-tier of youth soccer in the country.

Our staff of experienced and professional coaches create a competitive, high-intensity training environment, accompanied by professional fitness training, video analysis, college placement services and independent player development plans to assist players in reaching their goal of playing soccer in college, professionally or for the US Youth National Team.

Because of the comprehensive range of services and training offered, Metro United is quickly becoming the premier destination for top female players and those who aspire to become the top players in Virginia, Maryland and DC.

Futsal Training

At Metro United, players will train futsal year-round, as opposed to just in the winter. Led by renowned futsal coach and former professional futsal player Sacha Filippi, our high-intensity futsal training sessions allow players to build the creativity and confidence on the ball needed to play at an elite level.

Goalkeeper Training

Metro United Goalkeepers have access to goalkeeper training at every training session. Metro United keeper coaches Jonah Schuman, Sascha Filippi and Brian Bouhl work with keepers individually and when they’re integrated with the team. We ensure all Metro United keepers receive the specialized and often complex position-specific training and education required to succeed.

Capstone Performance Training

The success of our athletes goes well beyond the work they put in on the field. This is why we’ve enlisted the services of Capstone Performance Training to help keep our athletes fit, ensure recovery after grueling training sessions or hard-fought matches and to reduce the risk of injury. We believe this often-overlooked aspect of player development is imperative to our players’ health and success.

College Placement

Metro United offers a complete college placement program for all of our players from the time they arrive at the club through graduation. Overseen by our director of college placement Izzy Cotto, players are provided all the tools necessary to find the college soccer experience which fits their needs. Through lectures, one-on-one consultation, video review and independent development plans, Coach Cotto and the Metro United staff will guide and counsel players as they navigate the complex and often-overwhelming process of college soccer recruitment.

Metro United is happy to partner with Dr. Andy Prishok and Dr. Keith Lawhorn of Select PT to provide Physical Therapy services to all our players. Dr. Prishok and his staff are available at all Metro United home matches as well as certain training sessions. At Metro United, we feel this service is essential in prioritizing the health of our players.

Partner Clubs

Metro United works with three partner clubs – Great Falls-Reston Soccer Club, DC Stoddert and Potomac Soccer Association. Within these partnerships, players at those clubs will have a direct avenue to the upper echelons of the youth game. Our unique partnerships allow players to gain exposure to Metro United via a variety of pathways.
