If You Need a BRYC Uniform...Thursday Is the One Night to Get It!
Please try on your uniform before it's too late!
Did your child grow since last season? Does he or she need a new uniform? Or have you tried on the new uniform you just received and found it needs to be exchanged for a larger or smaller size? Maybe you forget to order shorts? Did you lose a pair of socks? Whatever the problem, by the season’s opening day the kids need to be ready to take the field in their blues or grays. If they’re not ready, you’ve got one night only, THURSDAY, March 30, from 5:30-8:00 PM at Little Run Elementary School, when the BRYC Soccer Uniform Coordinator, Dan Cho, and a host of volunteers will be able to help you at the semi-annual
BRYC SOCCER UNIFORM NIGHT
THURSDAY, MARCH 30
After Uniform Night, the remaining uniforms go into storage, not to be seen again until next season. That means if you can’t make it, you need to ask another parent or a friend to pick up the uniform items you need because this is your ONLY opportunity this season.
ONLY CASH AND CHECKS are accepted. No credit cards.
Exchanges for NEW uniforms ONLY. You may not exchange an old uniform for a larger size.
Cost: $34 for a complete kit (2 jerseys, 1 pair shorts, 2 pairs of socks); $12 for a single jersey (either blue or gray); $10 for black shorts; and $5 for either blue or gray socks.
Don’t miss out on your FINAL opportunity this season to purchase or exchange (new only) BRYC uniforms. On Friday it’ll be too late.
We also accept gently used uniforms or equipment. Parents can pick up any items on the donation table. Anything left at the end of the night will be donated to soccer programs in need.

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.

CDC Offers Online Training on Concussions
Will Become Mandatory for All Coaches in the Near Future
Concussions in sports is a very HOT topic right now, from youth leagues to colleges and professional athletes. Every public school sports program has a policy for handling concussions, and mandatory education for parents and athletes. Many sports clubs, including BRYC, are joining the move to raise awareness about concussions and their treatment.
D.C. United still looking for their elusive first win
Suffer 2-0 loss against visiting Columbus Crew
Three games into the 2017 season, United are still looking for that first elusive win. The Black-and-Red will have time to turn it around as MLS head into the first FIFA international break of the year.
Meanwhile, United have signed Canadian National Team player and two-time Canadian Championship winner, Maxim Tissot, following a successful preseason trial with the club.
Most recently, Tissot spent the beginning of the 2016 season with the Montreal Impact, where he logged 44 appearances over three and a half seasons. The 24-year-old then spent the remainder of the 2016 season with the Ottawa Fury of the North American Soccer League (NASL), where he made 19 appearances and scored two goals.
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.
