Pickup Soccer

kids playing pickup soccerThe single most important thing a youth soccer player can learn is to be comfortable with the ball at their feet. The most effective way to establish and enhance that comfort level is to give them multiple touches on the ball as often as possible.

Vienna Youth Soccer is proud to offer Pickup Soccer to all VYS players.  

VYS Pickup Soccer is provided to help all VYS players of all ages and skills with developing individual technical skills that can be used in pressure situations of the game.

Players are encouraged to be creative and take risks by applying techniques learned in a fun and non-pressured environment.  

This program is designed to allow the players the opportunity to learn from their own mistakes and enjoy less structured play.

Adult Pickup Soccer
2014 Fall Season

Message from VYS Technical Director Eddie Lima -- No More Adult Pick-Up Soccer at Nottoway

Several parents have concerns about the poor field conditions at Nottoway Park. In response, I am canceling Adult Pickup Soccer on  Mondays at Nottoway Park. 

I will attempt to find an alternative field/time. Please check the VYS website for updates.

Questions? Please contact me at vystd@vys.org.
