Our fourth child is competing in the Bristow Virginia “Battlefield Classic” soccer tournament this weekend. Our kids have participated in the Manassas soccer club’s highly competitive tourney many times. The well-maintained fields and excellent organization make this tournament one of the highlights of the season. Located about 15 minutes past the George Mason University Prince William County Campus and the adjacent Freedom Fitness Center, the Bristow sports complex has excellent soccer, baseball and lacrosse fields for kids of all ages. I had trained with a Masters Swim Team that held weekend practices at the Freedom Fitness facility, where Shandra Richardson of Riptide Swim & Sport now coaches. The Prince William athletic facilities are wonderful, and I will frequently get in a workout before or after court in order to avoid traffic and take advantage of the local pool, trails, battlefield park running trails, tennis courts and bike classes.
