Washington Spirit to Host NWSL Semi Final Friday, September 30
Victory Over Chicago Red Stars Would Sent Spirit to the NWSL Finals

The Washington Spirit fell out of the top spot on the final day of the season to finish in second place in the NWSL table, behind the Portland Thorns FC. That was still good enough to earn the team a home playoff match against the Chicago Red Stars at the Maryland SoccerPlex on Friday, September 30, 2016 at 8 p.m. ET. (Gates will open at 6:30 PM.) It will be the Spirit's third consecutive semifinal appearance but the first home playoff game in franchise history.

The following night, the Thorns will take on the Western NewYork Flash in the second semi-final match. The two semifinal winners will advance to the 2016 NWSL Championship which will be held at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston on Sunday, October 9 at 5 p.m. ET and will be televised on FOX Sports 1.

Tickets are on sale now. Reserved seats start at $45. Grandstand seating is just $35. Use the special ticket link noted in the graphic above.  Remaining tickets will be available at the box office on Friday night.

BRYC Celebrates 50 Years of Service to Families in the Community
Check out pictures from the event...

Founded by a small group of parents in 1966, playing but a single sport, BRYC has grown to be one of the preeminent youth sports clubs in Fairfax County, now having served over 175,000 families playing soccer, football, flag football, basketball, cheer, volleyball, or softball. 

On Saturday, July 30th we celebrated our history at Robinson Secondary School, with games, prizes, inflatables, a dunk tank, adult/alumni games for each of the BRYC sports, and special guests.

We're looking forward to the next 50 years and more!


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.

BRYC Is STILL Looking for a New Webmaster
Ralph Schuetz Calls It Quits after 15 Years

After over 15 years of service to BRYC, Ralph Schuetz is hanging up his cleats…or whatever it is that Webmasters hang up…and calling it quits. His last story and photos for the web site are the recap of this year’s highly successful FPYC All Star Tournament. 

Ralph’s staying around long enough to train his replacement over the summer months and consult as needed during the fall season, but he and his wife, both long-since retired, do a lot of traveling and it’s been harder and harder to always keep the web site up to date. The job doesn’t require more than five to ten hours a week at most, but it is a constant and ongoing need. The position needs to be filled immediately.

Interested volunteers should contact the Commissioner, James Sullivan, at, or contact Ralph at  

D.C. United Heading North to NYCFC and NY Red Bulls
Only a few more home games for the Black-and-Red

NYCFC WILD FINISH: D.C. United and their fans are likely not happy about the way the game turned out, but it was a thrilling finish for NYCFC, their fans and neutral viewers. While the majority of the match lacked the intensity seen in the best MLS games, the final 15 minutes were a rollercoaster, as the teams alternated between taking the lead and tying up the game in quick succession. 

  • 36' – DC – Lloyd Sam (Patrick Nyarko, Luciano Acosta)
  • 79' -- NYC -- David Villa
  • 85' -- NYC -- Frank Lampard (David Villa, Khiry Shelton)
  • 91' -- DC -- Lamar Neagle (Julian Buescher)
  • 93' -- NYC -- Frank Lampard (Khiry Shelton)

There are only a few more games left to see at RFK Stadium this season so get your tickets and enjoy the play on the pitch!
