New Recreation Program Leadership Announced

McLean Youth Soccer is excited to announce that Coach Trevor Lamb has been named Recreation Director and Vince Sprouls has been named Assistant Recreation Director effective immediately.

Trevor joined the MYS Travel program coaching staff in 2021 and currently coaches the 2013 Girls White and Gold teams. Trevor has almost a decade of experience coaching youth soccer including at the junior varsity and varsity high school levels and also as Director of Youth Football at Hangzhou Sinobal where he used a grassroots development approach while immersing himself in the language of Mandarin Chinese. His wide range of experiences will enhance the program by offering expanded coaching education and guidance to volunteer coaches, as well as focus on individual player development and enjoyment of the game.

“I’m more than willing to put in the elbow grease in person and build relationships with MYS community staff & volunteers through regular on-field participation in recreation programs. This opportunity is especially exciting as it allows for me to build off a lifelong passion in community sports through soccer.”, Trevor stated.

Trevor holds a US Soccer Grassroots License, Grassroots Referee License and is currently enrolled in the US Soccer D License.

Vince has been active with MYS for the past 20 years in the Recreation Program as a volunteer coach and technical advisor while working at his full-time job with the Department of Homeland Security. Vince comes with an immense amount of experience in Recreation coaching and an understanding of the MYS program.

Ian Harper, MYS Board member and longtime Recreation coach states that, “Trevor brings new ideas and an energy to uphold the traditions, while challenging to define new traditions that will keep MYS aligned with the evolving needs of the overall membership in the changing Youth soccer environment. Vince’s clear articulation of the goals of Rec (have fun, teach skills, and be a role model for the players) aligns with the MYS ethos. Vince’s approach on helping train and oversee Rec coaches ensures alignment with the evolving mission and goals of MYS.”

We are excited to have this dynamic duo leading the MYS Recreation program!
