USSDA :: Bethesda-Olney

2013 saw the marriage of Bethesda Soccer Club with Olney Boys & Girls Soccer Club. The two enjoyed quite the honeymoon in 2013/14, with a trip to the USSDA finals. Like all marriages, you must take the up with the down. The down will be pretty apparent this season, as the club has lost many …

DC has been extremely pro-active in acquiring talent all off-season. They’ve added pieces at every level of their academy. The 18s have …
