Guardians Club Soccer is VSA’s core developmental program being offered to all 9/10u, 11/12u & 13/14u players looking for more learning opportunities through an all-inclusive team environment. Teams will train at least two times, up to three times a week, compete in a minimum of one tournament with the possibility of playing in more, and will be led by license and industry experienced coaches.
