Takoma United Black Soccer Team
NCSL LEAGUE GAMES
Takoma United play in the National Capital Soccer League, NCSL. Most games are within a 45 minutes drive, but the league extends as far as Baltimore and Manassas. Players often car pool, and there is no obligation on parents to attend every game. Typically, games are on Sunday afternoons, but occasional games on Saturday or Sunday morning are possible.
Takoma United enjoys playing high level competition at regional tournaments. We plan to play at least two tournaments per season. Tournaments usually involve a commitment for both weekend days, and sometimes three days over a holiday weekend.
United practice twice a week during Spring and Fall seasons, for between 90 minutes and 2 hours, at various locations in the Takoma Park MD area. During the summer, we usually practice at least once a week, and we play indoor soccer once a week during the winter. Pickup games are often available on other evenings.
The team plays in a indoor winter soccer league at various venues in the metro area. We also have indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) practices throughout the winter season.
Club dues are assessed at the beginning of each season. Scholarships are available, as we believe money should never be a barrier to a player achieving her/his potential.
