The Four Pillars of Development

VA United NRV Academy

The VA United NRV Academy is a stepping stone for players transitioning from recreational soccer to travel soccer. There are 6 divisions in the Academy: U-8, Girls, U-8 Boys (for 2016 born players) U-9 Girls, U-9 Boys (for 2015 born players), U-10 Girls and U-10 Boys (for 2014 born players). The program consists of 2 practices per week.  Matches are played on the weekends.

All training sessions are part of a developmental curriculum focused on the technical and tactical abilities of the individual player within a team setting. Although scores will be kept track of in most games, they will be treated informally. We believe that the majority of development happens in training. The matches are the test where players can apply what they have learned from training.
