Alexandria, Virginia (Via Alexandria Soccer) – Alexandria Soccer will host U9-U12 boys and girls travel teams from around the region this March at the Alexandria Soccer Kick-Off (ASK) event, highlighted by ‘festival’ style games for the U9 and U10 age groups and a championship tournament style for the U11 and U12 teams.

The first two years of ASK featured over 125 teams in multiple levels of play facilitating an appropriate game day environment for all. Each game in the first two years has been played on turf fields, with no cancellations or shortened games, and the ability to de-conflict all games that have been requested by the the coaches. With the addition of two new turf fields in Alexandria City at Jefferson-Houston school and the Alexandria Renew Facility on limerick street the club anticipates being able to accommodate de-conflicting all coaches requests, hosting all games on turf fields and providing enough time between games for teams to use the field for short warm-ups.

In the festival format for the U9 and U10 age groups, coaches are incentivized in the preseason environment to play these youngest players equal amounts of time, give players opportunities at numerous positions, and allow coaches to manage their team without the unfortunate repercussions from the pressure of making it to the playoffs or championship game.

New to the ASK event this year will be the tournament setting for the U11 and U12 age groups. Utilizing the GotSoccer registration platform these age groups will be competing in group play, with the top teams advancing to the championship game on Sunday afternoon. ASA has partnered with Sports Pins International to provide those teams that reach the finals with an official medaling ceremony. The tournaments most experienced referees will be working these games to ensure quality control and provide for the highest possible level of enjoyment during the weekend.
