SECURE YOUR SPOT!

Due to local and state regulations, we anticipate having to reduce our enrollment numbers significantly this year. You can expect high demand on these first-come-first-serve camper spots, so please be sure to register early.

In 2022, VT Head Coach Mike Brizendine was named coach of the year by the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID). His first came in 2016, the season that kickstarted the Hokies' ongoing six-year streak of making the NCAA Tournament.

In 2021, VT player development came to fruition when two players were drafted in the top-30! Daniel Pereira was selected by Austin FC as the No. 1 overall pick and Kristo Strickler was selected No. 30 by Houston Dynamo FC in the MLS SuperDraft 2021.
