D.C. United Youth Scouting

Interested in playing for our Academy? Please complete our online scouting report or check out our upcoming tryout dates.

Academy Scouts will:

  • Identify events (matches, tournaments, etc.) to scout
  • Observe players and report back to D.C. United's Head Scout
  • Work with the Head Scout on next steps and tracking of player progress

Our procedure for contacting a player:

  • Player is scouted and identified
  • Player's technical director or coach is contacted
  • Player is invited to an age-appropriate Academy Team training session
  • Player is asked to continue with their current club until the end of their season, but is welcome to attend Academy training sessions
  • D.C. United will work with the player to determine appropriate next steps
