In collaboration with Virginia Episcopal School, Adam Godwin Soccer Academy is launching a U16 boys travel tournament team for the 2020 spring season. The purpose of this team is to compete in 2 high level tournaments while providing quality coaching and training opportunities. The team will train twice per week. To be considered for the roster please plan to attend the tryout. Attendance at the tryout is free and open to current 8th through 10th graders.
WHAT WILL THE COST BE?
The cost per player is $320. This will cover all practices, US Club Soccer regsitration fees, uniform, coaching fees and expenses, AGSA administration costs, plus entry fees to two tournaments.
The only thing that will NOT be covered is expenses related to tournament travel. Each family will be responsible for their transport, accomodation, and meals, etc, at each of the tournament.
WHEN/WHERE WILL WE PRACTICE?
We will practice at VES (400 V.E.S. Road, Lynchburg, VA 24503). The team will practice twice per week with exact dates and times to be determined.
WHO WILL BE THE COACH?
Parker Aaron and Noah Carney of the Randolph College men's soccer program will coach the team. Both are USSF certified coaches and will do a phenomenal job. Adam Godwin will provide administrative and coaching support to the team, but will not be involved in the practices or tournaments.
WHICH TOURNAMENTS WILL WE ENTER?
May 2-3 - Commscope Cup - Hickory, NC
May 15-17 - NC Fusion Cup - Greensboro, NC
WHEN WILL THE SEASON RUN?
The intention is for this team to begin practicing the week of March 16 or March 23 depending on how quickly we can get the team confirmed. We will train every week through our two tournament. A full calendar will be provided once the team is confirmed.
