Celebrate the Sport!

USA Lacrosse is excited to celebrate the sport of lacrosse this fall from Nov. 6-14, 2021. National Celebrate Lacrosse Week will offer daily themes throughout the event to bring the lacrosse community together virtually and in person to help showcase this special game.

Part of this initiative is to make the sport of lacrosse more welcoming, diverse and inclusive. We welcome all individuals from every walk of life to come and experience a sport that has so much opportunity for all youth.

A key component of National Celebrate Lacrosse Week will be free "Pickup and Play" clinics for children, ages 6-14, that will give these youth players a chance to try the sport and connect with local lacrosse organizations that provide opportunities to further their exploration of lacrosse. Registration is now open - CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.

Daily Themes

Celebrate the sport virtually (on social media) or in person with your team. This piece of National Celebrate Lacrosse Week will engage the entire lacrosse community in celebrating the sport at all levels and help to expose the game to new audiences.

  • Tuesday, Nov. 9: Celebrate and Play
  • Wednesday, Nov. 10: Celebrate Coaches & Officials

Soccer Alliance - South County & Arlington
by posted 05/01/2021


The South County Athletic Association (SCAA) is pleased to announce an alliance between the SCAA Soccer Program and Arlington Soccer Association.  The alliance will focus on player identification and development, Coaching Education and sharing of best practices between the two organizations. 

 

Arlington Soccer Association is one of the largest clubs in Northern Virginia.  Their travel program begins at 9U and goes up through 23U and teams play in the ECNL, ECNL Regional League, EDP & NCSL. Arlington Soccer is led by Technical Director, German Peri, and supported by a large and diverse technical staff.   German Peri stated "We are happy to support a young and growing organization as they continue to professionalize their program and provide more opportunities for their players".

 

 

According to SCAA Director of Coaching, Darryl Springer, “the alliance made sense as the programs share some of the same core value with respect to player development while conveying long lasting life values.  Furthermore, we pride ourselves on developing players that focus on being good citizens, good students and the best soccer players they can be”.

 

This alliance will help grow SCAA’s player base, increase competitiveness, and provide broader development opportunities for its players and technical staff. SCAA players will have a natural pathway to the Elite soccer programs that Arlington Soccer Association offers. The new alliance supports the SCAA Board of Directors goals of increasing player opportunities and broadening positive social impact to the community through soccer.

 

What does this mean for SCAA Soccer?

 

Player Development: This alliance will facilitate and grow pathways and opportunities for SCAA player development on the Elite level as well as maintain and increase competitiveness at the grassroots soccer levels.

 

Staff Development: Our staff is key to the continued growth of our program. Access to professional level coaching education will help SCAA to strengthen our coaching staff. With the right level of coaching development, we can improve our player experience to be and compete with the finest in the Northern Virginia area.

 

Best Practices: The alliance gives SCAA the ability to leverage sponsorships, facilities, and relationships with local government, and communities. It will provide resource sharing, e.g., uniform and equipment vendors, websites, etc. We can use these growth opportunities to provide greater access to the game for our players. This will be in the form of Player  Identification Sessions, Camps, Festivals, Showcase Events, Tournaments and more.
