Pequenos Craques

SL Benfica Presents Benfica Soccer School, Washington, DC

our program

The Pequenos Craques program is designed for players playing games for the first time.

Who is it for?

Boys and girls, ages U6 and U7

Program Focus

  • Individual skill development
  • Fun team play


Fall Season: September - November

Spring Season: March - May


Players will train as a group, with a heavy focus on individual skill development (and fun). For "games," players will be divided into small teams to play a series of short small sided (3v3, 4v4) games, ensuring players get lots of time on the ball. All practices will be conducted by Benfica Academy coaching staff, using training programs developed for young players in Portugal.


Pequenos programs are available in Takoma Park/Rockville and Frederick, MD.


Pequenos Craques players have two practice options:

Once a week: $400 per year

Twice a week: $600 per year

Prorated fees are available for players who join in the spring season (if space is available). Monthly payment plans are available.

Fee includes a uniform.

Refunds are not available for training sessions cancelled due to bad weather and due to field constraints cannot be rescheduled.
