Players from the U9 Boys Academy team traveled to Fredericksburg, VA to play in the FSCI March Friendlies over the weekend.
The boys played four games at the Fredericksburg Friendlies. Two games were played against the St. Mary’s Soccer Strikers (Maryland) and two games were played against the Lee Mount Vernon Patriots.
While they lost all four games, it was a great experience for everyone. Last season, our academy teams dominated most of our local competition. The Friendlies presented a significantly higher challenge and we faced some adversity for the first time. The boys responded well and learned some important lessons on spacing and defending that will help through the rest of the season.
Great work, team!
Friendlies are competitive games when the scores don’t count for league play. This game format is an excellent way for teams and players to continue their development while playing teams that are typically outside their area and/or at a different skill level.
The Academy Program is focused on individual player development and is the bridge between recreational play and competitive travel play. For more information on the program, please visit us at: https://csoccer.org/competitive-league/
