A desire to get Shore athletes better competition and coverage has led to another Shore Travel team finding success. Head coach J.P. Binard formed the ESVA Football Club Under-12 Co-Ed team last year after convincing officials of the Beach Football Club to allow his team to play in the Advanced Rec League.
The team’s success in the league led it to being promoted to the U12 Travel Lite Division this year where the team went 6-2. ESVA FC’s played against teams from Virginia Beach, Williamsburg, and Petersburg and were recognized not just for the team’s outstanding play but also great sportsmanship.
The team will be moving up to the next division in the fall after winning the division and will be holding tryouts toward the end of summer.
