The Girls Academy League returns this weekend after its winter hiatus, and both the Seacoast United players and staff are counting down the hours until they step out onto the field. To say that the fall season was a challenge is an understatement as the entire league in the northeast was disrupted due to a number of challenges. The teams have been working tirelessly over the winter in preparation for the spring season taking part in numerous training sessions, inter-club scrimmages and working closely with the Athletic Performance Center/Exeter Hospital strength and conditioning trainers.

“This past year has been challenging in many ways, but the commitment and desire of the players has never wavered and they are all eager to make up for lost time this spring,” says Girls Academy Director Chris Scott.

The curtain raiser for the spring season will see the teams travel down to Connecticut where they will take on fellow divisional rivals Oakwood Soccer Club.

“Our GU13-19 teams will be making the trip this weekend, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to have a full complement of our teams on the field again,” says Scott.

For the spring season, the Seacoast United Girls Academy program will see all of its age groups taking part in a full slate of home and away games. All of the home games for the spring season will be taking place at the Seacoast United Sports Complex in Epping, NH.

“We are fortunate to be part of a league, with league minded clubs, that offers a competitive platform for our teams which challenges and develops everyone, both on and off the field,” says Scott.
