Over the past 7 years, Mike Allen has coached both his daughter and son’s house soccer teams and has also coached/asst. coach for his son’s travel teams from U9 – U12. He has his E coaching license and the US Youth Soccer National Youth License.
For the past year, Mike has served as VYS President.
He was the VYS representative for the National Capital Soccer League since 2011 where he represented VYS at NCSL Board meetings, debated and voted on key changes to NCSL rules, worked with his peers from other clubs and helped establish a relationship between the new (2012) NCSL President and the VYS President. Mike also participated in the interview process when new clubs request to join NCSL.
Mike is a Sr. Director at Microsoft and responsible for the day-to-day operation of their US Public Sector business. He has leadership responsibility over 30 people across 3 national teams that are responsible for leading Microsoft’s licensing, sales excellence and software asset management for their public sector customers.
Mike started Homefront Heroes which creates short documentaries about the Wounded Warrior community.
Mike has been an active participant on the travel committee since 2011 and he has been part of the development of the VYS Academy since the second year it was established. He brings a strong and deep understanding of training in the VYS Academy from direct experience working with the Technical Director and the professional coaches.
I believe Vienna Youth Soccer has seen significant change and positive growth over the last 4 years. The House and Travel programs continue to thrive and grow with the strong interest in soccer starting at the youngest ages.
