The 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 (VYS) is proud to offer "Pick Up Soccer" for our House and Travel Players. 

VYS “small sided games – pick up soccer” is designed with the technical needs of the individual player in mind. The focus of our program is to develop 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.

Coaches should refrain from any coaching points during these sessions. This program is designed to allow the players the opportunity to learn from their own mistakes and enjoy less structured play.
