House Program Overview
A LIFETIME OF SOCCER
Since 1974, Vienna Youth Soccer has provided the opportunity for children of all abilities living in and near Vienna to be involved in a high-quality soccer experience. VYS offers programs that emphasize individual and team development for players of all skill and interest levels. Our recreational House Program is a great introduction to the game of soccer for new players, and is also a fantastic stepping stone for players who wish to compete at all levels. VYS is passionate about creating lifetime students of the game!
We are proud to introduce Vienna Youth Soccer’s first-ever 2021 Winter House League! U9-U19 players will have the opportunity to play team-based soccer with OUTDOOR games this Winter.
Worried about the cold? VYS will be providing game day bibs that fit over jackets, sweatshirts, and all other winter apparel. The VYS Winter House League will provide FUN & SOCIAL soccer games to our players while helping them stay sharp on the ball this Winter season!
- The Winter League will be a game-day only system. Matches will be held weekly every weekend on Saturday. This means there will be no official practices held throughout the week.
- Matches will still be officiated by registered officials each week
- As previously mentioned, VYS will provide a gameday bib to each registered player of the league. This special edition piece can be worn over jackets, sweatshirts, and all other winter apparel during games.
- The Gameday bib will feature the player's number, and winning Name and Logo Designs!
The VYS U5-U19 House League is our volunteer-based recreational program that emphasizes FUN, FRIENDSHIP, TEAMWORK, & SPORTSMANSHIP in a no-pressure environment. The House League is an 8-week program where teams practice 1-2 times a week and play games typically on Saturdays. Players receive uniforms from VYS and learn what it's like to play soccer in a team-based environment.

Is your House (recreation) player seeking more of a challenge and increased competition?
If "yes", then the VYS Development Center is the right place for your player.
The VYS Development Center is recommended for all House (recreation) players U7 - U9 (ages 6-8) who desire additional training and the opportunity to train with a professional coach.
Parents have the option of choosing their kid to participate in fully socially distanced practices or minimal contact which is based on the VYSA's return to play’ guidelines.
The Development Center model puts players’ development first with the focus and attention on the finer detail. Development Center values individual development, and will push players' skills to the limit. Each session will test and push the players technically and will master the ball over the six-week program.
Minimal contact practices will focus on beating the defender in a 1v1 situation and having the confidence to apply skill moves in an opposed situation. (Players will not be put into game scenarios, with no more than 2v2’s).
Weekly training sessions are provided for U7-U9 age groups. Questions about the Development Center? Contact the Director of House Programs, Stephen Bird at firstname.lastname@example.org.
