Travel Program Overview

Herndon is a remarkably diverse community that enriches our recreational program and ultimately impacts our travel program. The Herndon travel program supports teams, based on their competitive level, in the following leagues: ECNL Regional League - Viriginia, National League - South Atlantic Conference Operated by EDP, NCSL, CCL Super League and CCL Next Gen. In addition, Herndon is a partner club of VDA (Virginia Development Academy), forming VDA-North, to provide an elite pathway for players that develop in our Herndon Club to compete in the ECNL National League with VDA.

Our club takes great pride in cultivating home-grown talent, retaining many players who have found success on our travel teams since developing in the club at U4. The foundation of travel soccer is nurtured through the Recreational Program from U4-U6 and the Pre-Travel Academy from U7-U8, with professional staff helping to foster a love of the game through fun and competitive development. Herndon pioneered these programs in the area when they first began in 2000, and they have grown tremendously in both numbers and professional methodology.  The Pre-Travel Academy was expanded in the 2021-22 season to become instrumental in our youth pathway program with year-round elite training.

We have produced numerous state championship teams, competitive tournament champions and league champions. Countless players in our travel program have gone on to play college soccer, and quite uniquely, one former travel soccer standout currently plays in the NBA (Dallas Mavericks rookie Josh Reaves guard). 

Prior to the 2022-2023 travel season, Herndon announced the leagues our teams will compete in as part of a clear pathway to elite player development.
