Vienna Youth Soccer Celebrates Award Winning Season Receiving
Prestigious Coach of the Year and 11 Outstanding Sportsmanship Awards

VIENNA, VA – February 6, 2013 – Vienna Youth Soccer (VYS) receives acclaim from the soccer community as Camile Louis is recognized by Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA) as Boys Recreational Coach of the Year and 11 Travel Teams receive outstanding sportsmanship by the National Capital Soccer League (NCSL), Old Dominion Soccer League (ODSL), and Washington Area Girls Soccer League (WAGSL).

VYS is committed to creating a positive culture in which coaches, parents, fans, officials and players have the tools and training to work together to achieve our mission. For the past five years, VYS has partnered with Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a national nonprofit organization committed to providing all youth and high school athletes a positive, character-building youth sports experience. As a result, more than 50% of VYS coaches have attended PCA workshops or taken online courses about positive coaching and sportsmanship. www.positivecoach.org

According to Margaret Kerfoot, President of VYS, "Vienna Youth Soccer is extremely proud of our players, coaches and parents for demonstrating both competitive athleticism and outstanding sportsmanship. We are very pleased that our VYS teams strongly represent positive ideals and our players are learning important life lessons through sports."

In addition to their outstanding sportsmanship during the fall season, the U15G Strikers Red Team has decided to “pay forward” their recognition by sharing their love of the game with others through a donation to the charity DC Scores.
