About The Initiative

The Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA) announced that they have been awarded a three-year grant extension in U.S. Soccer’s Innovate to Grow Program that will work to increase the participation of women in coaching within Virginia and the District of Columbia.

The program entitled 'Accelerating the Participation of Women in Coaching' will offer tuition free** 7v7, 9v9, 11v11 and D licenses and C license tuition to qualified female candidates across Virginia and DC. 

U.S. Soccer’s Innovate to Grow program was established in 2017 to help U.S. Soccer member organizations like VYSA launch new and innovative programs designed to grow participation of players, coaches, or referees in their markets.
