My son will be 5 in March and I'd like to get him involved in Vienna Youth Soccer. What do I sign him up for? How does registration work?
We're excited to hear your son is interested in playing soccer with VYS! Your son would enroll in our popular House Soccer program. House Soccer is our recreation league where teams are formed by players' age, gender and school/neighborhood so kids can play with friends, make new friends and have fun while learning the best sport in the world - soccer!

Click here to begin registration. First-time registrants will be asked to Create a New Account and upload a copy of their player's birth certificate or first page of passport as proof-of-birth during registration. Welcome to VYS!
We are new to Vienna and my daughter has been playing soccer for many years. We are interested in your Travel Program for both the spring and summer opportunities.
Welcome to Vienna, VA and thank you for reaching out to VYS! We offer an extensive Travel Program for players ages 8-18. You can find more information about our Travel Program on our website at: http://vys.org/travel/travel-program-overview. We hold Spring tryouts for the Fall season in May. Tryouts for our summer Super Y League are held in the January - February timeframe.
Can you please let me know what the practice times are for this group. Both my wife and I work and therefore we would like to see if this fits into our schedule.
Most of our House coaches are parents with full-time jobs who are coming to practice after work. So you can plan on your player's practice time occurring during the weekday evenings. Games will be anytime from 8am - 5pm on Saturdays.
Why do I need to show a birth certificate?
First time registrants are required to provide player Proof-of-Birth (copy of player's birth certificate or first page of passport) to verify player's age to determine age eligibility. Parents can upload a copy of this document during online registration or email a copy to the VYS Registrar at email@example.com.
Who do I contact about my player's registration?
Contact the VYS Registrar for all registration issues.
I registered my player, when will we hear from our coach?
House Coaches will be assigned to teams towards the beginning of the season. Parents will be contacted by a House Coach prior to the start of the season. Travel coaches are assigned to teams after tryouts.
When we will know the practice schedule?
House and Travel Coaches will communicate practice and game schedules closer to the start of the season.
How do I order a uniform?
For U4-U8 House players, a uniform is provided and distributed by the coach at the first practice. U13 and older House players can order a uniform kit during online registration. Travel players will order uniforms from our vendor, soccer.com. Click here to learn more about the VYS Uniform for Travel Players.
What is Grade Level Exception (GLE)?
For House players born in August or September, VYS provides the opportunity for these players to choose whether they would prefer to play on a team of players in the same grade, or on a team of players of the same age. Eligible players can choose their preference at the the time of registration and will be asked to send a notification to the VYS registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is Walk-In Registration?
One Saturday every season, VYS holds an in-person registration event. VYS staff are in attendance to assist with registration, answer questions and/or process documents (i.e. financial aid, proof-of-birth).
