HAYMARKET, VA (Friday, January 22, 2016) VSA is proud to announce the return of the Summer Academy Program. The Summer Academy Program will be available for players who are committed to getting better over the summer period and want to take their game to the next level.
During the summer period there are always a lot of options available for players, but the most important component for all players is the training element and the environment created. The Summer Academy provides both of these elements without having to travel the width and depth of the country. VSA will be committed to creating the #1 summer program in the area with all coaching staff having USSF licensure of the highest levels (USSF A, B, C and National Youth License).

The Summer Academy provides players with quality training in a team environment, with the goal of getting each player to the next level, in preparation for the fall season. We are looking forward to a great summer with the Summer Academy Program." Dale Parker, Assistant Technical Director.
The goals of the program are as follows -
Provide quality training and learning environment
Provide specific individual training in a team environment
Provide technical, tactical and physical training with ability to develop in games
Provide players with quality localized training at national level facility (Long Park)

Virginia Soccer Association-
VSA is pleased to announce a formal agreement with Beast Mode Soccer Virginia in line with the recently released US Club Soccer’s Player 1st initiative, which is an in-depth focus on the full experience of the player. Beast Mode Soccer focuses on developing the individual technical development of players and is used by multiple US National team and professional players. We are excited that this agreement will provide VSA players with the opportunity to seek additional learning opportunities within our club structure.
As part of the agreement with VSA players will have the opportunity to utilize the following:
- 2 Beast Mode Soccer Camp hosted at VSA – Spring and Summer
- Monthly Beast Mode Video’s posted to VSA social media outlets that focus on individual development
- Additional 1v1 Training Opportunities
“A big reason for our support and agreement with Beast Mode Soccer is that we have identified that to maximize the ability of our players they must be working outside of the practice setting on individual ball mastery. What this relationship creates is a number of opportunities for all of our players at the club to take advantage off. The videos will give all players the opportunity to learn these important individual skills at home. The camps provide a feasible option to enhance these skills and be provided guidance over an extended period of time and finally for players wanting more they are able to seek quality, organized, and progressive 1v1 training as well”
Beast Mode Soccer of Virginia is led by Tim Krout an experienced and well respected A-licensed coach. Beast Mode currently has training sites in the central and northern areas of Virginia along with Maryland.
“We at Beast Mode Soccer are thrilled to be working with VSA to provide additional individual opportunities for players to support the club’s player development program outside of the weekly training schedule. We are excited to continue to help produce a culture of self-reliant players who want to own their development” Tim Krout, Beast Mode Soccer.
Beast Mode Soccer was founded by David Copeland-Smith and is based around the simple core value of hard work. Beast Mode soccer focuses on the individual technical, mental, physical, and tactical development of a player by pushing them to the limit with their individual touch-based system.
