4th Grade National Team

Head Coaches – Erik Bursch ( and Tony Washington (

Tony Washington and Erik Bursch are excited to coach the Vogues 4th grade national team this spring.

Tony has a strong background with both kids and basketball through his work as Assistant Principle at Sunrise Valley Elementary along with coaching youth basketball for several years. He is a graduate of James Madison University.

Erik grew up in Vienna, playing basketball for Madison High School and then in college at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg. Since graduation, he’s coached youth sports at a variety of different levels.

Tony and Erik view the 4th grade national team as a step up from the youth sports leagues, with higher competition but keeping the aspect of fun throughout the season. Our focus will be on fundamentals, and having the girls have a stronger level of basketball strategy. We will have practice 1-2 times a week and play in up to 2 tournaments a month. The tournaments will be locally based in VA, MD or DC, with a possibility of an overnight tournament played outside the DMV area.

Looking forward to a great season!
