Own The Goal: Elite Goalkeeper Training (OTG) is pleased to offer unique goalkeeper opportunities for the goalkeepers participating in this year’s 2016 WAGS Tournament. Goalkeepers will have the opportunity to get sharp for the tournament with OTG Goalkeeper Clinics or showcase their talents in front of college coaches at the OTG Goalkeeper Showcases.
OTG will offer two Goalkeeper Clinics for the U11-U14 goalkeepers on Friday evening, October 7 at Evergreen Park (19571 Evergreen Mills Road Leesburg, VA 20175).

The cost to pre-register* for the Showcase is $90 and includes an OTG gift and spot in the WAGS College Player Profile Book. Spots are limited so register now to secure your spot!

The WAGS tournament is proud to have the Referee Mentor Program return to the tournament. The referee mentors will be in attendance to oversee the referees during the event. They will provide feedback both at halftime of the games and also after the games have concluded.
In addition, the referee program for the WAGS Rael Vodicka Tournament is unique since there will be female referees that can relate to female athletes on a distinct knowledgeable level.
