“This is a testament to the hard work and sacrifice that each one of these players and their families have committed over the years,” commented Sascha Görres, Richmond United Academy Director. “These players joined Richmond United from many different clubs from around the area to achieve their goals. Without the foundation that they developed in their early years, this would not have been possible.”
 
“On behalf of the Richmond United staff, I would like to congratulate these players for achieving their goals and wish them the best as they continue their soccer careers,” added Görres.
 
The Richmond United Boys Development Academy's vision is to offer the most comprehensive and successful player development environment for soccer in the Central Virginia region.
