What is the PPA Development League?: The PPA Development League is the leading youth sports league in the DC and MD regions, catering to players from kindergarten through 8th grade. It is the only program open to players of all levels, where parents can register for teams with a professional coach or a parent volunteer coach. The best place for players to play with friends and school teams, this program blends the convenience of recreational leagues with the high-quality experience of club sports.

What is our Philosophy? Creating the Magic of Sport: Imagine it's a Saturday morning and you're going to the game! Young athletes are there, shoes laced up, eyes shining, hearts pounding. You see Tommy make a fantastic pass, and there's a collective cheer. Lilly takes a shot, misses, but you see her grit her teeth, ready to try again. It's not just about the score, it's about the thrill of the game, the rush of a shared goal, the lessons learned in every missed shot. This is what we call "the magic of sport", a philosophy we aspire to achieve in our Development Leagues. We’re not your typical rec league where players get a high five for their attendance. We're here to spark a love for sport, an understanding of teamwork, a lesson in resilience. The Development League is about creating passionate athletes, shaping character, joyful memories, and leaving an indelible imprint on the lives of the next generation.
