FALL Travel Prep Program

Program Overview:

The South Loudoun Fall 2020 Travel Prep program is a 6-week training program designed to prepare players for the upcoming Winter travel season.  This program is designed for players in grades 4-9 who are interested in participating in Travel.  This program is not a requirement to be accepted into the Winter Travel program, nor does participation guarantee acceptance into the Winter Travel program.  Players must meet all requirements outlined in the Winter Travel Tryout requirements.

Program Design:

The program will feature small group training with High School coaches.  Players will select one day per week (Monday through Thursdat) to participate in group training sessions.
