Braddock Road Youth Club (BRYC) and Vienna Youth Soccer (VYS) are excited to announce a new partnership to build teams to compete in the Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), effective for the 2022-2023 seasonal year. This partnership will expand upon the successes of both clubs and elevate the effectiveness of the established BRYC ECNL teams through rosters strengthened by top level players from VYS.
