BRYC Lightning 2008 Girls ODSL (rising U11G) soccer team will hold open practice tryouts for the Fall 2018 season on select days over the summer. We are looking to add a few girls for the fall season. Any girls interested in Goal Keeping are extra welcome.
Our team has enjoyed playing in the ODSL for the past 4 seasons. The league is a great opportunity to play in a somewhat more competitive setting with only “local travel” to other area clubs such as Arlington and Alexandria. We have developed a good team chemistry (on and off the field) and a positive approach to competing and improving, while recognizing that life exists outside of soccer. Coach Andy Lowden holds an E coaching license, and has coached boys and girls BRYC ODSL and recreational teams for the last 5+ years.
Please contact Coach Andy at email@example.com (or 703-887-0475) if you are interested in attending a tryout or if you have any questions about our team.”

Five Myths About the Old Dominion Soccer League (ODSL)
If you’re not familiar with the Old Dominion Soccer League, let us clear up a few myths:
Myth 1. You already have to be a great soccer player to play in ODSL.
Fact: ODSL is a developmental league, a place where players can learn the game without the intense pressure of competing at increasingly higher levels. Their motto is Play with Dignity, Respect Your Opponent.
Myth 2: Players have to commit to playing year-round.
Fact: ODSL has two seasons just like recreational soccer and encourages players to play other sports or explore other interests.
Myth 3: It’s very expensive.
Fact. ODSL is not much more expensive than rec soccer. Teams pay a separate league registration fee and most play in a tournament or two, but since virtually all coaches are unpaid volunteers they also try to keep costs at a minimum.
Myth 4: There is a lot of travel involved.
Fact: In our area virtually all games are in Northern Virginia, most in Fairfax County. There is however the occasional away game in a Stafford or a Winchester.
Myth 5: ODSL teams are always practicing.
Fact: Most ODSL teams practice about the same number of hours a week as rec teams – usually twice a week for about 1 ½ hours.
