BRYC's ODSL Squads Bring Home Tournament Honors
Five Teams Reach the Finals in Highly Competitive PWSI Icebreaker Tournament

Over two very chilly weekends in late March, before the start of the regular soccer season, five of the six BRYC ODSL teams entered in the prestigous PWSI Icebreaker Tournament came home with medals around their necks, emblematic of having reached the finals in one of the area's most competitive pre-season tournaments.  Playing alongside travel teams from BRYC's own Elite  program not to mention over 450 other teams from all over the area, one squad, the BRYC Gunners (pictured at right), a U12 Boys teams coached by Mohamed Diaw, came home with championship honors, undefeated and untied in four matches.

Meanwhile, the significance of four other BRYC squads reaching the finals with near perfect records before falling in the championship cannot be overstated, especially as three of them competed in the PWSI's "Pride" Division, the Premier level conpetitive division of the tournament.  For BRYC's  relatively new ODSL program that's a tremendous accomplishment.  Congratulations to Coach Anthony Pagano's BRYC Dyamo (U11Boys); Coach William Bejan's BRYC Raiders (U14 Boys); Coach Pierre Martel's BRYC United (U11 Girls); and Coach Young Kim's BRYC Strikers (U10 Boys) (pictured left) for their tournament success.

Back to the Championship winning Gunners, they scored 11 goals while giving up only 1, before entering the championship match vs the Patriots of the Alexandria Soccer Assocation, winning that match by a final score of 6-3.  Over the past several seasons the Gunners have won both tournament championships and ODSL sportsmanship awards as they continue to be a committed, hard-working bunch of boys, giving their absolute best as they play the game they obviously love.  Congratulations to the Gunners and all of the BRYC finalists for their great tournament showing.

BRYC's ODSL Soccer Teams, Spring 2015

After getting its feet wet with one squad in the Spring 2013 season, BRYC Recreational Soccer fielded twelve teams in the Old Dominion Soccer League (ODSL) in the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 seasons, and returned with fifteen teams in the Fall 2014 season, with the loss of the founding "Rage" girls but the addition of two new squads of U9 Boys (coached by Erin Silks and Mike White), U9 Girls (coached by Kyle Alllison), along with a new U10 Girls squad (coached by Brian Godlove).  After a dominating fall season, BRYC United, a U10G squad has elected to play up at the U11 level during the Spring 2015 season. 

The ODSL is a competitive travel soccer program in which the teams play against other squads from around Northern Virginia, usually on Sunday afternoons. Congratulations and best wishes to the coaches and each of the new and returning teams.  Good luck in the fall season.

BRYC Lady Spurs (rising U11 Girls)

     BRYC Lady Spurs, a rising U11 ODSL travel squad, will be adding new players for the upcoming Fall 2015/Spring 2016 season.  Tryouts are as follows:  Fridays May 15, 29th and June 5th from 5:30 – 7:00pm at Woodson High School on the West Fields (Upper turf) and Tuesdays May 19 and June 2 from 5:30 – 7:00pm at Little Run Elementary School.   The tryouts will be conducted through our weekly practices.  Attendance at each practice/tryout is HIGHLY encouraged, but not mandatory, so that we can get a complete evaluation of your daughter in different situations.  We welcome all prospective players and their parents to attend these sessions to get a feel, first hand, for what the Lady Spurs are about and have an opportunity to interact with the current players and coaches.

     The Lady Spurs are coached by Brian Godlove and Rich Wyant.  Both coaches are licensed, US Soccer E and F respectively, and have multiple years of coaching experience.  Our coaching philosophy will continue to focus on the holistic development of each player's skills and their understanding of the concepts of team possession and play. We take a patient and long term view in developing each player, and the team, and believe in the proven benefits this approach produces.
