Boyds, MD (July 25, 2017) – Washington Spirit Academy teams took part in their final summer Gap Program workout on Wednesday, July 19 at the Maryland SoccerPlex in preparation for the inaugural U.S. Soccer Girls’ Development Academy season.

While team-specific preseason training begins in early August, with the regular season kicking off Labor Day weekend, Spirit Academy teams came together throughout the first half of the summer to continue their development with the club-wide Gap Program. In addition to sharpening their skills alongside new teammates, Spirit Academy players received instruction from members of the club’s professional coaching staff and got to watch several NWSL training sessions.
