PVYA Soccer Mission Statement
Our goal is to provide the best soccer development program for our players through a continual focus on technique, ball handling and the first touch. We will develop each player based on their own strengths and opportunities looking towards the soccer player they will become versus the kind of player they are today. This will be accomplished through age specific developmental routines that will provide our players with creative ball handling and leadership skills needed to move upward to the next level.
Spring Practice begins the week of March 17th. Your coach will be in touch soon with practice schedules.
Registration for the PVYA Spring U6 Academy Program is open. The U6 Academy Program is for kids born after August 1st, 2007 and before December 31st, 2009. The U6 program is designed to teach basic footskills and teamwork using a variety of small-sided games & activities. We meet on Mondays at Valley Elementary beginning March 24th.

Welcome to PVYA Soccer
PVYA Soccer is growing into one of Frederick County's most exciting and competitive soccer programs. Several PVYA teams are competing in tournament events throughout the MD, VA and PA area. In addition, though all our teams are not classified as "Travel Teams," PVYA has made it a standard that all Coaches in the organization receive certification from either the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) or USSF (United States Soccer Federation) through the Maryland State Soccer Affiliate. By increasing our Coaches knowledge of the game, the USSF recommendations of practices, and age bracket focus topics, we are providing better technical training during the "Golden Years of Soccer" which span from U6-U12 teams.
Creating The Individual Player
Focusing on the individual player is the priority of the PVYA coaching
Growing a creative player is the focus within our player development strategies.
To this we need to focus our efforts on the ball skills a player needs to be a successful soccer player. You will notice a great deal of foot skills being taught at the younger age groups to include the basics of passing, trapping, dribbling, and moves (Faints and Fakes). These all lead to being able to teach Techniques and Tactics of team play. More and more, we as coaches, are told to have practices with all the players involved in the sessions and to get as many touches on the ball as you can. With this in mind, the players become more comfortable when the ball is played to them and the fear of "what do I do now" grows to "look at the options I have".
