ACADEMY CENTERS:  2022-2023

The U8 Academy program will be divided into two training regions:  North (Loudoun & Chantilly) and South (Springfield).  Those regions will be broken into 4 training locations:  Ashburn, Brambleton/ South Riding, Chantilly & Springfield.

2022-2023 Playing Season Sites:

  • North Region
    • Ashburn (Bles Park & Potomac Lakes)
    • Brambleton/ South Riding (Hanson Park-Pending)
    • Chantilly (The nZone)
  • South Region
    • Springfield (The St. James)

The benefit of this structure is that it allows us to provide programming geographically for ease of travel, it also provides us "in-house" competitive games to supplement outside crossover games and it provides a larger player pool for the creation of our future U9 Travel teams.
