D.C. United's volunteer crew is looking for enthusiastic volunteers to join our team during the 2014 season and beyond. Our volunteers have the opportunity to work in a variety of areas with different members of the organization on game days. We would love to have dedicated volunteers join us for great seasons ahead.
Before we move onto 2014, let's take a look back at our post-season tour in Indonesia.
Indonesia Tour: Jakarta
Indonesia Tour: Bandung
Day five. It doesn’t sound like very many days, but they sure do add up when you play, watch, coach and write about six different soccer games. Games fluctuate with a flick of a ball or a shot on goal and emotions dip and rise with goals, cards, fouls, wins and losses. Dramatic victories, unbelievable saves, and clutch performances from players made for an exciting and intense Winter Showcase.
Everyone was ready for a day to sleep in, except the coaches. Coaches Tom Torres and Nolan Sheldon and Academy Manager Steve Olivarez went to a meeting to listen to U.S. Men’s National Team Coach Jürgen Klinsmann. Meanwhile, the U-18s took the day off, and the U-16s didn’t have a game until 1 p.m. It was a cool morning and a lot of guys slept in or took walks on the beach. The U-16s departed for the field as the temperature began to rise.
The day started before the sun came up for the U-18s. The day was dreary and overcast, but the U-18s ignored the weather and were prepared for the day's game.
