Stafford Attack: Welcome

Welcome to

Stafford Attack was an Under-18 girls travel soccer team from Fredericksburg, Virginia. We originated in the Stafford Area Soccer Association, moving through the ranks of the Recreation and Classic Divisions. Our travel legacy began to be established Fall 2006, in ODSL, and concluded Spring 2010, after two years competing in WAGS. Our student athletes completed their travel soccer careers and are now focused on life's next set of challenges at their respective colleges.

The team was coached by Brad O'Dell, a finalist for the 2009 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year award, and Assistant Coach Joel Anderson. Both coaches hold a National 'D' License, a National Youth License, and numerous NSCAA certifications. Our coaching philosophy is to provide a fun, challenging, and fair environment for student athletes to maximize their growth as soccer players and as individuals. We believe lessons learned through sports are significant and applicable to the players' future growth as student athletes and as adults.

Stafford Attack re-formed as an Under-8 Coed Recreation soccer team in the Fall of 2010 playing in the Stafford Area Soccer Association. The team transitioned to the Fredericksburg Area Soccer Association (FASA) Classic Division in the Spring of 2012 and concluded its run as part of Fredericksburg Footbal Club (FFC) in the Spring of 2015, as a core group of players moved into the FFC travel ranks. The team was coached by Brad O'Dell.

One Journey Ends....Another Begins
Stafford Attack concluded our successful run as a team in June 2010. Our ladies are now off to tackle college and life's next set of challenges.

Attack Conclude Fall 2008 Season with Second Place Finish at Old Dominion Cup

It was a fitting conclusion to our season with ties being prevalent through our tournament schedule. As with the regular season, we moved through with no losses, but we left many points on the table. Most notable during the chilly weekend was our 1-1 tie with the eventual champion who last competed in WAGS U19 Division 1. If we match our level of play in that game, and play to our abilities, the Spring 2009 season will be a great one. Congratulations on a solid finish to your first season playing WAGS. Enjoy the holidays and turn your focus toward conditioning for next season. ATTACK PRIDE!

Stafford Attack completes third consecutive season without a loss

Ladies, congratulations on a solid first-ever season playing in WAGS. While our fourth-place finish could have been better, we achieved a number of our goals for the season and ultimately saved our best game for last. This is something to build upon. To finish your third consecutive season without a loss is a difficult task and you should feel proud of this accomplishment. Let's celebrate our success in Virginia Beach at the Old Dominion Cup, but be ready to get back to work. Our minimum goal for Spring 2009 is 18 points. We know you can do it! Attack Pride!

2008 Dulles National Tournament Finalist

Ladies, you are off to a good start for the Fall 2008 season. Three important wins set the stage for an intense championship game. You fought to the end against the U19 WAGS Division 3 opponent and gained a lot of respect from their players and coaches. A 3-1 overtime loss was not our end goal, but we can be proud of the effort and look forward to a solid start to the upcoming season. Attack pride!
