NC Courage GDA

NC Courage GDA was one of the first 25 teams admitted to the GDA in June 2016. At that time, NC Courage GDA was known as CASL or Capital Area RailHawks Academy, but since the move of the NWSL team to Raleigh, the academy will continue to use and operate as "NC Courage GDA" to represent the connection between the professional and academy teams.
