Some ODSL Squads Still Looking for Skilled Players
Fall 2014 Season Just Weeks Away

The Old Dominion Soccer League (ODSL) is a great opportunity for players to be challenged and grow in a more competitive environment. All ODSL coaches are licensed with multiple seasons of coaching experience. Each coach brings his or her individual personality to the pitch but the primary focus of all teams is on individual player development, learning to play in a team atmosphere, and sportsmanship. For any questions you may have, please contact the coach for the team you are interested in or the ODSL Deputy Commissioner Andy Seamans at BRYC_ODSL@yahoo.com (703-978-5396).
 
BRYC Rising U11B Dynamo will be holding tryouts for 1-2 roster positions for the upcoming Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 seasons at Woodson Stadium on Thursday, July 10 from 5:30-7:30pm, and on Tuesday, July 15 from 5:30-7:30pm.  Dynamo took second place in Division 3 in Spring 2014, and will be moving up to compete in Division 2 in the Fall.  Dynamo is coached by Anthony Pagano, who holds a National "D" License from the United States Soccer Federation.  If you are interested in trying out at these times, or would like to schedule another tryout, please contact Coach Pagano at ajpagano@live.com.
 
BRYC Raiders Rising U14B is still looking for skilled and interested players to fill out its roster for the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 seasons. Raiders compete in Old Dominion Soccer League (ODSL) Division 2, where they were Division Champions for their most recent season.  If you are interested, please contact Head Coach William Bejan at wbejan@gmail.com, copy to Assistant Coaches Mauricio Milian (milianfive@gmail.com) and Anthony Pagano (ajpagano@live.com).

BRYC's ODSL Soccer Teams, Spring 2014

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 2014 season, and returns with twelve teams in the Spring 2014 season, with the addition of our first U12 Boys Squad, BRYC Arsenal, coached by Andy Seamans, but the withdrawal of our U16/17 Boys squad.  The ODSL is a more competitive recreational 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 spring season.

Three BRYC Squads Win ODSL Sportsmanship Honors
U9B Strikers, U10G Panthers and U12 Girls Lightning Do BRYC Proud

Each season the coaches in the ODSL vote for a team in their division which exhibits the best sportsmanship toward opponents, referees and opposing fans.  The prestigious award is named after Randy Rawls, one of the leagues original founders and its first President.  The award honors the winner’s sense of fair play, something for which Randy was renowned as he sought to bring soccer opportunities to the youth of Northern Virginia. 

BRYC is pleased to announce that three of its first-year ODSL squads have been honored with the award for the Fall 2013 season, including the U9 Boys Strikers, coached by Yong Kim; the U10 Girls Panthers, coached by Mike Newman; and the U12 Girls Ligntning, coached by John Decker.  (Only three other soccer clubs earned more honors.)  BRYC prides itself for a record of sportsmanship and fairplay and we are very proud that these three teams continue in that tradition. 

Each of the winning teams will receive a handsome team trophy and individual awards for each team member, coach and assistant.  Teams that are returning for the Spring 2014 season will receive tickets for players and coaches to a DC United or Washington Spirit match where they will be honored at halftime.

BRYC ODSL Teams Have Great Fall Season Results -
Two Teams Placed First and Two Placed Second!

BRYC's twelve ODSL teams had a great fall 2013 season, with four of them placing in the top two of their respective divisions!  Three of the twelve squads couldn't be ranked as U9's or else BRYC would have had even more in the top two based on their season play.

Congratulations to U11B BRYC Lions and U13G BRYC Rage for their first place regular season wins! Coincidentally, both teams went into their final game of the season undefeated, and each played to a tie game against the second place teams. (The Rage gave up their only goal of the season in the closer.) Congratulations also go to U11B BRYC Gunners and U16/17B BRYC Lumark SC for their second place division finishes!  Every ODSL team fought hard all season to be competitive, and we had great results!  Bring on the spring 2014 season!

BRYC Dynamo Supports Breast Cancer Awareness
U10 Boys ODSL Squad Sartorially Splendid for the Month of October

Beginning with the Battlefield Tournament over the Columbus Day weekend, where they boys made it to the finals with a 3-0 record before losing a heartbreaker to Vienna Youth Soccer (VYS) in the finals, Coach Anthony Pagano’s U10 Boys Dynamo have shown BRYC’s colors well...and with a bit of their own touch...pink socks to show their support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Coach Pagano says "there’s hardly anyone on the team who doesn’t know somebody close to them who has been affected by that disease."  

 

 

 

It was the coach’s son Nathan who suggested the team should do it and the rest of the team supported the idea enthusiastically as "one small way we could show our support for those who have suffered from (breast cancer)."  Kudos to the boys for their initiative and thoughtfulness.
