VAFC had planned to host Player Identification Sessions in May for U9 through U19 boys and girls (players born 2002-2012) interested in joining the Peninsula's top developmental & travel program for the 2020-21 seasons. Given the COVID-19 issue "traditional tryouts" did not take place but assignments & invitations pushed forward with returning players & new players that we were familiar with.  In addition, new players that we are not familiar with and have not been offered a roster spot should attend tryouts, register through the link above and to be assessed by VAFC staff.  Registration is now open by CLICKING HERE
