Each player (U5-U8) will receive a grey SoE training shirt within the first couple of weeks of training. U5-U8 players will also receive a blue game day shirt.
For training, please wear your grey SoE training shirt (if you have one), dark shorts and dark colored socks. If you are new to the program and do not have a grey SoE training shirt, please wear a grey or white shirt of your own. Please also bring a properly inflated soccer ball (size 3 for U5-U8)
Additional SoE shirts will be available for purchase. We will begin to sell the remaining stock the third week of practice. Cost per extra shirt is $10.
U5/6 Boys and Girls = Size 3 Ball (properly inflated)

Training schedules will vary from season to season. The most current schedule can be found in the links to the left. All training sessions will be held at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex Stadium unless stated otherwise. Players need to enter the front of the sportsplex, walk up the stairs to the 2nd deck, then walk down the stairs onto the field. Parents, please remain in the stadium seating.
Remind players to NOT walk on the big Rush “R” logo on the ground on the field. We respect the “R”!
Games are held on Saturdays.
All U5-U8 games will be played at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex Grass fields (behind the Sportsplex, enter through the National Hockey Training Center to the right of the Sportplex).
