BRYC Players Help Teach the Coaches...
U13 and up Players Assist at the VYSA D License Evaluation Course

Robinson HS Upper Turf - December 10 & 11:  Because BRYC wants our coaches to be the best they can be for the kids in our communities we regularly host VYSA coach's licensing classes. At each class, players are needed to serve as the "team" while the coaches are instructed, practice what they learn and are eventually evaluated.

Over the weekend of December 10 & 11, BRYC hosted the VYSA D Evaluation Course. It was a chilly weekend, and yet many of our players chose to volunteer their time to give back to the sport and to support the coaches in our area.

Participating teams included:  John Kelleher's Friday Night Lights, Maggie Legum's Panthers (and friends), James Sullivan's DANGER! (and friends), Melissa Dennison's Gunners and Knights, Bob Heyer's Magic and Carlos Merino's FPYC Lions.

Super volunteers were IK from Friday Night Lights, who played the entire weekend (10 hours of soccer over 2 days!); and Fredy and Danny Vern from Magic (8 hours of soccer over 2 days!).

BRYC Coaches Maggie Legum and Marcelo Morales were among the coaches being evaluated for the D License. We wish them all our best as they wait for the results to come back.

BRYC is VERY PROUD of our young people who so generously gave their time this weekend, despite the cold weather. Youth sports teach life lessons in so many different ways, and instilling the desire to give back to grow something you love is definitely a life lesson worth learning.


5th Annual Fall Coaches Challenge

Our coaches met on December 4 to mark the end of the season at the Coach's Challenge, a game that pits the coaches of our girls teams against the coaches of our boys teams. It's always a LOT of fun... and it celebrates the good work and dedication of our coaches and their families.

BRYC Celebrates 50 Years of Service to Families in the Community
Check out pictures from the event...

Founded by a small group of parents in 1966, playing but a single sport, BRYC has grown to be one of the preeminent youth sports clubs in Fairfax County, now having served over 175,000 families playing soccer, football, flag football, basketball, cheer, volleyball, or softball. 

On Saturday, July 30th we celebrated our history at Robinson Secondary School, with games, prizes, inflatables, a dunk tank, adult/alumni games for each of the BRYC sports, and special guests.

BRYC Survives Thanks to Volunteers; Won't You Join Us?
As Little As a Few Hours Or As Much as a Season (or Ten!) Are Much Appreciated

BRYC Recreational Soccer wouldn't exist without the dedication of its volunteers.  Our coaches are the most visible, and without them we would certainly have no program, but the more than two dozen members of the Executive Committee (EXCOM) work year-round to keep the organization running smoothly.

BRYC Is STILL Looking for a New Webmaster
Ralph Schuetz Calls It Quits after 15 Years

After over 15 years of service to BRYC, Ralph Schuetz is hanging up his cleats…or whatever it is that Webmasters hang up…and calling it quits. His last story and photos for the web site are the recap of this year’s highly successful FPYC All Star Tournament. 

Ralph’s staying around long enough to train his replacement over the summer months and consult as needed during the fall season, but he and his wife, both long-since retired, do a lot of traveling and it’s been harder and harder to always keep the web site up to date. The job doesn’t require more than five to ten hours a week at most, but it is a constant and ongoing need. The position needs to be filled immediately.

Interested volunteers should contact the Commissioner, James Sullivan, at, or contact Ralph at
