VSA continues to strive for success on the national level using US Club NPL and ENPL platform
Fall 2017 has been a very successful season for our VSA NPL teams. This season saw the introduction of the ENPL (Elite NPL for U14-U19 boys), National Qualifiers and the US Club VA State Cup Championship, with several VSA teams qualifying for these events.
Our 01 Boys (2nd), 02 Boys (3rd) and 03 Boys (3rd) all qualified for the regional event to be held in MA in June, with the 01's having the opportunity to advance further to the ENPL National Championships should they leave the event as winners. In the younger boys age groups the 07 boys finished 2nd and 05 boys 3rd.
On the girls side, VSA had a very strong season, with the 02 Girls finishing 2nd, 04 Girls in 2nd, 05 Girls in 2nd, 00/99 Girls in 4th, 07 Girls in 4th, and the 06 & 03 Girls finishing in the top half of the league.
"From a results perspective, we are extremely happy with the success on the field for our players and coaches. From an overall experience standpoint, this season the VA NPL has provided a great platform for our club and our players have thrived in the environment created. Dale Parker, VSA Director of Coaching
Qualifying teams from the U15-U19 age groups will now participate in an 8 team play-off, with the winner being crowned Virginia State Cup Championship Winners on December 10th.
