WHO WE ARE:  VYS is a recreational soccer league for youth (ages 4 to 16) 
in the Spokane Valley and nearby communities. 
Our league is run by dedicated VOLUNTEERS.
VYS is a true "NON-PROFIT" organization. Our focus is totally on the needs 
of the children and providing a fun, enjoyable, and AFFORDABLE 
sport for them.  A better soccer program... more soccer and less cost.
Compare us and see how we are different from the others:
1) COST ! 
More soccer, more games, less money!  Our cost are much less than other programs.
How do we do it?  We use VOLUNTEERS to handle most administrative duties and
we have the support of local businesses to help keep cost down.  
We offer MORE games and MORE playing time for your child than any other program.
This is VERY important because the "secret" to becoming better at playing any 
sport (and especially soccer) is playing time.  Every major soccer organization
says "the game is the best teacher".   PLAYING is how you learn - there is no short
cut.  Paying higher fees for "professional training" does little good.
Trained referees for age U8 and older (most other leagues require parents to referee
for U9 and younger). 
We offer programs with flexibility to meet your child's needs. Rather than follow
rigid, inflexible rules... we do what is best for your child and the whole program.  
Examples include allowing inexperienced players to play at their level rather 
than forcing age rules.  We also allow teams to continue year to year.
We have experienced and nationally certified coaches that VOLUNTEER
their time to help train your child's coach because they ENJOY soccer and working
with kids. We have FREE training clinics to help our coaches expand their knowledge.
Club staff are available to help coaches with their teams.
Covers ALL soccer related activities within our organization (including our summer

Help us by getting involved as a coach, volunteer, or team sponsor ! 
See the "My Site News" section for the latest events and news items.
Forms for all events are located under the "handout" tab.

Soccer program information

Posted by David Barlos at Oct 19, 2018 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
Games are played on Saturdays at local Spokane Valley schools. Most games are currently at Trent Elementary (3303 N. Pines) or at TRENTWOOD Elem. (14708 E Wellesley), but there may be away games at other locations. The soccer year is from August 1st to July 31st. There are two separate sessions: Fall (2nd week of September to 1st week of November) and Spring (April and May). There are separate registration fees for these. Teams and their practices are normally centered close to their local schools. Practices for the younger ages (4 to 8) are normally one evening a week for about an hour. Older ages (9 and up) may practice twice a week. Practice locations are determined by the coach, with input from the team to find times that are convenient for everyone. Items needed by each child include: 1) SHIN GUARDS 2) SOCKS (to cover the shin guards) 3) SOCCER SHORTS (black or neutral color recommended) 4) SOCCER BALL: size #3 ages 4 - 7 (U5-U8), size #4 ages 8 - 11 (U9-U12), size #5 for 12 and older (U13 +) 5) WATER Soccer shoes are NOT required, but recommended for better traction. "tennis" or "athletic" shoes (no metal spikes, protruding spikes, etc)may be worn. These items should be brought to each game and practice.

In soccer, the games are NOT canceled for rain or weather.

The only time we cancel games is if it is "unsafe".  Normally, the
game is played as long as the field is "playable".

The only exceptions are when there are extreme or unsafe conditions.
This would include lightning in the area and when conditions (heavy
snow or rain) makes it impossible to play the game.
