Welcome to the 2021 100 American Vienna Steelers. Your children have been spectacular this first week. We are impressed by their attitude and effort. I use the VYI Website for the bulk of my communication. If there are any email addresses you would like to add, please let me know
Here are your 2021 Vienna Steelers
We have a facebook page @The Vienna Steelers. Please feel free to like and share. It would be great if we could have a parent volunteer to photograph games. We are also looking for a volunteer to film our games for us. Also a team parent (or parents) is a great necessity as we plan on having numerous get togethers throughout the year.
The Vienna Steelers were started in 1980 and since then we have been one of the most successful teams in Fairfax County. We are excited about the effort and enthusiasm your children have shown over the last week and look forward to their development as football players and young men. We ask an awful lot of the kids to compete in football at this age and will continue to challenge them every day to take the opportunity to improve at every practice and game. We work very hard as a Coaching staff to ensure that your child has a lot of fun, learns a lot of football, and learns the concept of teamwork. I hope as parents you will continue to support our efforts and goals

We have been very lucky with the support the parents have given us over the years. I am known to pull parents out of the stands during practice to help. Make sure you wear a good pair of tennis shoes (just ask Josh Martin)!
We are always looking for support for our team in the way of sponsorship. We had a very generous group of sponsors in 2019 that we are a very big part of our success and allowed us to reward our kids for the hard work they exhibited all season long. If you know of anyone who may be able to make a donation I have provide a cover letter explaining how we use the funds are distributed and used.
I will send out a schedule for the upcoming weeks shortly and you can expect weekly e-mails from me to keep you up to date on the schedule. If you ever have any questions or concerns please feel free to call or email me. I look very much forward to the upcoming season and very much expect to be playing football through November.
