BRYC travel team tryouts for spring 2019

BRYC Girls Travel Team Tryout Notices:

BRYC Phoenix 2007 Girls (ODSL Rising U13G) The BRYC Phoenix will play in ODSL U12G Division G2 in Spring 2019 (their fourth season), and we need more, enthusiastic players to help out!  There are several spots available on the roster, and some opportunities to play as a guest (if your daughter is in the BRYC Recreational League for Spring 2019).  Tryouts to join the team can be arranged during regular practices, which will resume mid-March, but please don't wait to write Coach Kyle at kylemawake@gmail.com  (or call 703-801-9527) in case we have enough for indoor session 3.

Coaches Kyle Morrison and Liz Smith endeavor to teach the girls all facets of the game, and encourage them to try new roles on the field.  Coach Kyle holds an E license, has coached BRYC teams for over 3 years, and is intent on providing a good opportunity for the girls to play in challenging games (while still having time for other activities).

(Note that switching from the BRYC Recreational League to a BRYC ODSL team is not difficult, even mid-season, and 2008 girls can also join this team.)

 

BRYC Fireballs 2006 Girls (ODSL Rising U14G)  The Fireballs, a Division 1 ODSL team, are looking to add a few experienced players to their ranks for the upcoming spring 2019 season. Open tryouts are being held during our regular spring practices.

The team is coached by VYSA D-licensed and Level 1 Futsal coach, Adolfo Perez. Having played internationally, Coach Adolfo brings a South American approach with his soccer development and coaching style. A solid philosophy focused around building strong confident athletes and encouraging creativity, has made the Fireballs a very successful team.
  

This opportunity is perfect for any player trying to sharpen their skills and compete at the highest level. Please email or call/text Coach Adolfo, adolfoperez9@icloud.com / 703-975-3864, if you plan to attend or if you have any questions.

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.
