Ballaz Academy is making their first international tour where they will be participating in the Williamsburg Invitational Tournament in Williamsburg Virginia this weekend.
A 62 member contingent including 37 players, coaches, staff, and parents left the island on Thursday for the three day competition will feature 150 teams. Ballaz Academy which is led by former Reggae Boy Andre Virtue is the only club or academy participating from outside of the United States.
They will feature in three age group categories, including U-9, U-11, and U-12, over the three days.
Former Reggae Girl and FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019 ambassador Tashana Vincent will be in charge of the U-9 team while Virtue himself will be in charge of the U-11’s. Another former Reggae Boy, Donald “Fowly” Stewart will be in charge of the U-12’s.

While Ballaz will feature in only three age groups, teams from Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC will be participating in age groups up to U-16.
Virtue explained that the invitation to participate in the tournament was extended by boyhood friend Trevor Spenser with whom he played football for Jamaica at the youth level, as well as collegiate football at Howard University.
“We have been doing a lot of work inside of Jamaica so we decided that it was time to give some of our players some international exposure. We are trying to expose them to the next level of competition so that they will be able to appreciate what it takes to become a professional player from early,” Virtue was quoted as saying.
The U-12’s are the only Ballaz team in action today and they will play at 6:30 pm
