Question: What happens when three clubs that consistently finish in the top four of the VCCL decide it is time for change?
Answer: Form a new league, the VA Premier League, focusing on player development on the field as opposed to time spent driving in cars.
VA Premier League - The Right Choice
VA Premier League presents advantages to the players, coaches, and parents not found in other leagues.
• Developing players in a club versus club, home and away format designed by top Technical Directors in the country.
• The three founding clubs were selected by US Soccer as top clubs in the country to participate in national leagues and are evaluated by US Soccer each year. Higher level programs / players are evaluated by National Team Scouts.
• Member clubs have a proven philosophy of player development.
• Decisions of the league are made by the club Technical Directors with sole focus on improving youth soccer whilst removing any political agenda.
• Flexibility to add additional teams in the younger age groups providing more opportunity for player development.
• Less expense to the parents for the same high quality product without unnecessary Interstate 95 travel and hotel costs.
With the addition of Chesapeake United and Chesterfield United to the VA Premier League we look forward to forming new rivalries to replace some of the old ones without having to drive to northern Virginia and Maryland to do so.
The Virginia Rush continues to be the only Club in our area that is able to afford its membership the opportunities to be part of local, state, regional and national programming.
