SCVA High Performance

Welcome to the 2019 SCVA High Performance program! The three greatest factors contributing to the success of our program are the SCVA region leadership's support, the awesome athletes in our region and our world-class coaching staff. 

The 2018 season capped our incredible journey ending with our Boys' Youth International winning GOLD! An enormous thank you to our athletes, families, coaches, sponsor (Under Armour) and staff!
Each season the SCVA HP program assembles a world-class coaching staff insuring our athletes receive the best training, exposure to college coaches and a memorable experience.
