VYSA President Steps Down

After more than 20 years, Denise Edwards is retiring as President of the Virginia Youth Soccer Association (VYSA).  Denise has been an ardent supporter of the Metro DC-Virginia State Referee Program and youth soccer in Virginia, the U.S., and internationally.  She was involved in all levels of operation of VYSA and helped many young players and referees attain success at the youth, college and professional levels.  Denise navigated the organizational politics inherent in any organization for the betterment of all of Virginia soccer.   Our Referee Program can attribute many of our successes to Denise’s dedication and support.  We will miss her.  We welcome her replacement, Bill Phillips, and look forward to continuing our relationship with VYSA.  

Denise, the entire Metro DC-Virginia State Referee Program thanks you for your years of service and wishes you the best in whatever the future holds.
