Flash Buffalo banner

Buffalo is the original and home region of the Western New York Flash Academy. Founded back in 2012, the academy aims to provide a professional, organized, and accomplished player development program for youth soccer players of all skill levels.

Buffalo is home to more than 800 academy players, as of the 2023-2024 season. Practices and games are based out of Flash Fields and Sahlen's Sports Park in Elma, NY.

The North region also brings in more players in the Buffalo area, practicing at ECC North and Epic Center.

In addition to our club teams, the WNY Flash also hosts its own Jr. Academy, camps, House League, and Center of Excellence in the Buffalo area.
