This month marked the beginning of the u7/u8 NextGen Academy. Players were introduced to the professional staff and had their first session, beginning their journey to travel soccer. This year round program is designed to give players in our rec league a chance to develop their individual skills at an accelerated rate while competing against other local clubs on Saturdays.
Coaches focus on individual dribbling, passing, receiving, shooting, and even the basics of team play.
Our recent graduates (shown above) from the academy took home first place in the Dulles National Tournament!!

Registration for the Academy is still open! For more information, contact Director of Player Development Vincent Vergamini.

September Recovery Method from the Director of Athletic Performance
With the season underway, hydration should be at the forefront of any athlete’s mind. One of the best performance enhancements aides for any athlete is none other than H20…..WATER!

Besides creating discomfort and thirst, dehydration to the tune of only 2% of the body’s water mass has shown to greatly decrease exercise performance . An easy way to make sure you know you’re hydrated enough to perform at top levels is: Divide your body weight in half and drink at least an ounce per pound of body weight throughout the day. (Example: 140lb Athlete should drink at least 70 ounces of water a day)
