Super Y Program

Super Y Intro

The Super Y League is a high-quality national league offering players a chance to train and compete during the summer months. The league is organized in geographic divisions and VYS teams will compete in the Mid-Atlantic division against other clubs in Virginia and Maryland. Each team will play between 8 and 12 games with half of them at home in Vienna. Teams have the opportunity to qualify (based on division standing) for the Super Y Finals in Bradenton, FL in December, and compete for a National Championship.

  • Current Proof of Eligibility for Free or Reduced Lunch Program Current Proof of Eligibility for Medicaid

All players who receive any of the above benefits qualify for financial aid.

If you are not eligible for public assistance benefits and cannot provide a copy of one of the documents listed above, please submit a copy of your current Federal Tax 1040 form (first page only). Eligibility is based on the number of people in your household and household income.

Where and when are practices and games?

Teams will practice twice a week during the week starting in June and ending in early August. Training will be in Vienna. Games are usually on the weekends, but can also be scheduled during the week.

How many players will teams carry?

Teams will carry rosters large enough to allow players to miss time for family vacations, regional and national club and ODP tournaments. VYS plans to roster between 14-18 players for our U10 teams, and between 20-26 players for our U12 and above teams.
