The club has a firm belief in the value of sports at the competitive level in promoting the physical, mental and social well-being of dedicated soccer players. Our summer program will provide the best learning environment, social, and competitive training opportunity for players at every level because it is conducted by what has been widely recognized as the finest professional coaching staff in Northern Virginia.

Who Should Attend

MYS Camps have age-specific programs from ages U8 through U15, which allow players to choose the program that fits them the best. Each program features age appropriate training of soccer skills and a lot of fun. We operate under the philosophy that the game of soccer is the best teacher when played in an enjoyable environment. Coaches will enhance the learning process by providing campers the choice of activities, lots of encouragement, and a light touch on teaching new skills.

You do not need to be a member of MYS to attend. New members and non-members are welcome to attend as well. However, if you are a member of MYS, you should register using your MYS userID and password.
