ABGC Activities Suspended

ABGC (1)

To our valued ABGC community,

During this uncertain and anxiety-inducing time, ABGC has been monitoring COVID-19 advisories daily to ensure we protect the health and safety of our players, coaches, event attendees and community.

Effectively immediately, all ABGC activities and sports will be suspended until further notice. It’s abundantly clear that mitigation strategies including limiting large crowds and social isolation are key to reducing the spread of the Coronavirus in our communities. It’s up to all of us to make sacrifices to stop the spread of this pandemic in America. ABGC is committed to do just that.

ABGC will continue to monitor COVID-19 advisories daily and will advise you of any changes impacting our Annandale families.

Please stay safe,

Annandale Boys & Girls Club

Annandale Alum Leads UCLA to the Semi’s

Congratulations to Annandale native anCromwell_Amanda_006_cropd soccer phenom, Amanda Cromwell. Amanda is now the head coach of UCLA women’s soccer. Tonight, her team plays in the women’s college semifinal game.

This isn’t her first time in the limelight. Eight months after being hired on Apr. 12, 2013 as the fifth head coach in UCLA women’s soccer history, Cromwell led her team to the program’s first-ever NCAA Championship. In six seasons as UCLA head coach, she has taken her teams to two College Cups, four quarterfinals and five Round of 16 appearances.

Cromwell was an inaugural member of the Annandale High School Athletic Hall of Fame and attended the University of Virginia. She was the captain of the 1991 Cavaliers team that advanced to the Final Four. She was also a two-time All-America selection, a finalist for the 1991 Hermann Trophy and a four-time All-Atlantic Coast Conference honoree. She played for the US team and is in the DC/Virginia Soccer Hall of Fame.

ABGC wishes Amanda the best of luck tonight as UCLA plays at 6:30 (PT) tonight against Stanford in the women’s college cup semifinals. You can watch it on ESPNU.

Supporting Your Community- Two Ways

The Annandale Boys & Girls Club is excited to be chosen as the beneficiary of Giant Food’s new Community Bag and Giving Tag program during the month of July.

Every month, a new non-profit is chosen to be the beneficiary of the Community Bag. Attached to the Community Bag is the Giving Tag, which allows the shopper to direct the $1 purchase donation to any cause of their choice. ABGC is proud to have been chosen to participate in July.

ABGC is the oldest youth club in the state of Virginia and serves more than 5,000 athletes and families each year with community-based clinics, camps and special events. Every reusable Community bag purchased at Annandale’s Columbia Pike Giant store helps us continue our service to the community.


Join Us

We hope the Annandale Boys & Girls Club community will join us next weekend at the DC United vs San Jose Earthquakes game as ABGC’s President, Kip Germain, will be recognized along with his Washington Diplomats teammates.

ABGC’s legacy in the metro area’s soccer community is long and deep and we are excited to be a part of this special event.

You Can Make a Difference this Giving Tuesday


#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving.

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday provides an alternative to shopping events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday,  #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. It’s a simple idea. Whether you come together with your family, your community, your company or your organization, find a way to give back.

Did you know?  The Annandale Boys & Girls Club offers thousands of scholarships each year to local families, who qualify, to cover registration costs for their young athletes in all of our recreational programs.  For many youth, community programs like ours provide a unique opportunity for kids to make new friends, learn a new sport or activity and be a part of a team. All while having a lot fun, too! However, too many in our community, can’t afford the registration costs

Your donations to the Annandale Boys & Girls Club will help us keep our scholarship program alive. ABGC has proudly committed, over the decades, to ensure that all of our youth have an opportunity to participate, compete and experience the joy of youth sports.  You can make that happen.

There are two ways you can make a difference for a youth athlete at ABGC.

Contribute to our scholarship program. Every dollar contributed to our scholarship program funds the registration fees for qualified Annandale families.
