Shenandoah University and the Washington Spirit joined forces in 2021 to form an epic partnership that redefines the educational experience. Through this partnership, Shenandoah students can explore real-world opportunities at a professional level in physical therapy, athletic training, business and esports, while Spirit athletes have a chance to excel outside the stadium as they pursue a premier education at Shenandoah.
One of the responsibilities we have to our players is to help prepare them for life when their playing careers are completed. We have developed a breadth of services to support our players, and this new partnership is the crown jewel of our program. Spirit players will be able to pursue graduate and undergraduate degrees across all programs offered by a great university.”
Steve Baldwin | Spirit Managing Partner
The longer we play professionally, the longer we are out of the traditional workforce. It’s hard to acquire other skills because of how strenuous our jobs are. Shenandoah has been great because they offer a hybrid model. I can go take classes in person or online. I’m learning business skills that I can apply to my life now as a professional athlete and that I can use as I transition to life after soccer.”

The partnership between the Spirit and Shenandoah is incredible. This gives us a lot more opportunities for the future and I couldn’t be more thankful. We can’t play soccer forever, so this is really important for many of us players.”
