“We’re really hoping that we can come back and continue the Academy next year,” said S.C. Battery Academy executive director Clark Brisson. “We’re exploring some different options and hopefully we will be able to return for the 2017-18 season."
Shilo Tisdale, the coach of powerhouse Wando High School, said, "I know there are some kids at Wando that play for The Academy, so they’ll probably come out next year. We’re lucky, we have a good bit of depth in our program, but I think there will be other high schools that benefit a lot if they get some of their kids back. I’m all for anything that promotes the game. I think this will benefit high school soccer.”
