Bethesda Soccer Club


30 Years of Soccer Excellence

Bethesda Soccer Club started as three teams in 1979, competing as the Bethesda Boys Club. Today, we have some 40 boys and girls’ teams from ages U-8 through U-19 that compete in various leagues in Maryland and Region I. The club is located in Montgomery County, Maryland, just northwest of Washington, D.C.

Bethesda teams have had a long history of success, from league play to tournaments to cups at the state, regional and national levels. Our teams compete in the USYSA Region I League, the National Capital Soccer League (NCSL) and the Washington Area Girls Soccer League (WAGS).  Our young teams play in the Olney-Bethesda Soccer League (OBSL), a developmental league that we co-run with the Olney Soccer Club.

Bethesda players have had success with their teams and beyond. Many of our players participate in ODP at the state and regional levels with a good number selected for the national team pool. Our kids have lead their high school teams and many have gone on to have successful collegiate careers. The Club philosophy is to develop our players so that they are prepared to compete at the next level.

Club alumni include former U.S. National Team player Bruce Murray; former Major League Soccer Player A.J. Wood, a standout with the University of Virginia championship sides; U.S. National Team player Joanna Lohman, repeat recipient of the NSCAA/adidas College Scholar Athlete of the Year Award as a player at Penn State University; and teenage phenom Freddy Adu of DC United.

The club is governed by an elected board of directors and officers. Its success though is due to the extraordinary contributions of volunteers, from team managers to tournament age group coordinators. Teams select qualified coaches approved by the board of directors. Decisions on recruitment and acceptance of players are made by each coach. The club does not rank teams within the same age group for the purpose of "promoting" stronger players or "demoting" weaker players.
