Black Widows Join the Training Session
As part of its community outreach efforts, the Washington Spirit “adopts” about forty teams in the area each season, drawing names from a hat and sending one of their players to run a training session. This year U13/14 Girls League Director and Coach Jon Fredrick’s girls (not coincidentally called the BRYC Spirit as Jon and his assistant coach Tom Small have been staunch supporters since the Washington Spirit’s first year of play in 2013) were selected for the program when one of his player’s entries was chosen.
ODSL Squads Line Up for the Referees!
BRYC Lightining and Winchester United Square Off
Referee Director John Davis asked if BRYC U13G United Coach John Decker might get a photo of the three referees for his game on April 19 against Winchester U13G United. John explained that Referee Mark Gorak and AR Danielle Chesky are both National Referees while AR Rob Chamberlain is a National Referee Candidate and that would be one of the most experienced group to ever referee a BRYC match.
Coach Decker did one better, capturing both teams before the start of the game in their "World Cup" like formation. (Oh, and BRYC Lightning beat United by a final score of 3-1.)

Concussions in sports is a very HOT topic right now, from youth leagues to colleges and professional athletes.
