Thursday, March 21, 2013

The Capital Area RailHawks Academy Program is pleased to announce that SportHQ will be the exclusive home for futsal specific training for all Academy players for the upcoming 2013-2014 season. 

This relationship will see the entire Capital Area RailHawks Academy Program, at the U13/14, U15/16, and U17/18 age groups, hold futsal trainings at SportHQ.  These trainings will occur throughout the 2013-2014 season, but will be concentrated in the winter months.  The program will blend meaningful futsal instruction with free play opportunities to best enhance the Academy players’ technical abilities, overall speed of play, and overall enjoyment and development.

“Futsal is another piece of a comprehensive development program that will help cultivate our players to compete at the highest level and reach their maximum development potential,” said John Bradford, Director of the Capital Area RailHawks Academy.  “Also, by having the Academy Program players train at SportHQ, this not only puts us at a quality facility, but it helps continue to establish the tangible relationship between the Carolina RailHawks First Team and the Capital Area RailHawks Academy Program,”

SportHQ is currently the site for futsal and athletic performance training for the Carolina RailHawks Professional Team of the NASL.

"We are excited by the Capital Area RailHawks decision to incorporate futsal into their year-round training program, and honored they have chosen to partner with Sport HQ to implement it. Having the highest caliber of players in an environment that promotes growth in their sport is the mission Sport HQ was founded on; and adding the U14, U16, and U18 Development Academy teams to the U-23s, Reserves and 1st team RailHawks, who we already see week in and week out, fits perfectly within that mission," said Rob Andrews, Owner and CEO of Sport HQ.

"Futsal has a strong history of developing the world's best players and I am pleased that the Capital Area RailHawks Academy teams have taken this strong step to incorporate it next year. With the right curriculum in a quality training environment, futsal will dramatically improve each player as it has done with so many other greats in the past." - Miguel Andrés, former Spanish National Team Coach.  Andres is the Futsal Director at Sport HQ.
