WVSA Players Summit



Saturday, March 12, 2022


DoubleTree By Hilton - Downtown Huntington


The West Virginia Soccer Association is excited to present the Inaugural WVSA Players event designed for soccer players (15 years old and older) that focuses on taking their game to the next level (high school, club, ODP and/or college).

WVSA will bring in experts in the following areas like strength & conditioning, nutrition, sleep, mental health and college recruiting to speak to our youth players and give practical advice on how to perform better in these areas.

This will be an all-day event for players (and their parents). Tickets for this event will be $10.00 per person and all proceeds will benefit the WVSA Plus One initiative to encourage more licensed female soccer coaches in our state.

Tickets will go on sale October 1, 2021. A link will be provided on this page to purchase tickets in advance on 10/1. We will only have 100 spaces available for this event.
