All hands on deck

For the first time since the announcement of a partnership between Jason Levien, Erick Thohir and Will Chang as owners of D.C. United, the three were in town over the weekend for a whirlwind tour surrounding United's 1-0 victory over Chivas USA Sunday night. Among the agenda items during the visit was an opportunity to become actively involved in the community programming for which D.C. United is synonymous.

United's players test coaching skills

After training Wednesday morning, Black-and-Red's players put to work
Community Soccer

Liam Nagle is a big D.C. United fan.  The youngster recently celebrated his birthday at RFK, cheering along with friends as the Black-and-Red downed
Houston back in late April.  On
that day, Nagle got to see Perry Kitchen – a player the 9-year old counts among his
favorites – go the full ninety minutes in a thrilling 3-2 win.

But on Wednesday night, the tables were turned.  D.C.’s young midfielder was the one
cheering as Nagle dribbled down the field at Long Bridge Park in Arlington.
