The Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA) is a non-profit, charitable corporation devoted to promoting youth soccer in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the District of Columbia. VYSA’s Olympic Development Program makes their selections without regard to a player’s ability to pay. VYSA provides financial assistance, for those who qualify, to players whose families cannot afford to pay the full cost of participation in the Olympic Development program.
Those requesting scholarships for ODP fees should submit and ODP Scholarship Application to the VYSA State Office. While financial aid funds are limited, the scholarship program makes this opportunity available to those in need in our community.
*For 2018-2019 scholarship recipients, ODP player financial responsibility will be 50% of an event's required fees.
ODP try-out fees and foreign trips are not covered by the scholarship program. It does not cover out-of-pocket expenses such as transportation to practices or events when that expense is not part of the VYSA ODP fee.
The deadline to submit a scholarship application is September 28, 2018.
