  • The Brownson House/Vernon C. Neal Sportsplex serve the Greater Washington Area with youth and adult flag football programs. The youth flag football program is an introduction to the game of football without physical contact. Participation and fun are emphasized in these programs. The adult flag football league is an outstanding cardio-vascular activity that allows the players to remain competitive in sports and share time with friends.
  • The Vernon C. Neal Sportsplex soccer programs are available to both youth and adults. Teams and players represent school districts and soccer organizations from all over the Tri-State Region. The youth and high school programs allow teams to play together during the Winter months at our indoor astro-turf facility. The participants can hone their skills and maintain their physical conditioning when it is too cold to play outside. The B. H. youth soccer is a strictly recreational program for fun.
