Who We Are
LMVSC is a non-profit organization committed to providing every child in our community access to high quality sports leagues and training. We are located in Fairfax County, Virginia. While Fairfax County is the 3rd richest county in the United States, our club draws players from fourteen Title 1 schools. Every year, we are able to offer our under-privileged community scholarships. LMVSC is proudly able to offer scholarships to 1,000 players in our Basketball and Soccer programs. With over 4,000 players annually, our commitment to serving our community has been steadfast for 50 years. We are dedicated to serving for 50 more!
LMVSC was born during the summer of 1969. Three gentlemen, John Walker, Dennis Smith, and Walt Ulica, were discussing the need of youth soccer in our area. A consensus emerged that soccer didn’t limit participation for lack of size or height and could be a tool for more participation than some other youth sports. With this agreement, the Lee-Mt. Vernon Soccer Association was born.
From that humble beginning, LMVSC has expanded it’s programming to where we are today. Our Recreational Soccer Program offers clinics/leagues for players age 2-19. The Travel Soccer Program became a member of the prestigious Club Champions League in 2015. This regional league allows our travel players to compete at the highest level. Combined, more than 2,000 players participate in our soccer programs yearly.
In 2006, LMVSC became a multi-sport club by adding Basketball programs. Today, our program counts almost 1000 players. The Travel Basketball program competes in the Fairfax County Youth Basketball League against other local clubs since 2011.
With every step forward, LMVSC always remembers our goals to make players love the game and provide the opportunity to play.

LMVSC in the Community
Breast Cancer Awareness Game
Our families came out to cheer for their coaches in the first annual LMVSC Breast Cancer Awareness Coaches game. A night of fun, friendly competition came down to penalty kicks where Coach Lee’s team edged out coach Lula’s team. In the end, LMVSC raises $2,000 to donate to the INOVA Schar Cancer Institute.
Lee District Park Grand Re-Opening
After getting re-turfed over the summer, Lee District Park was ready for it’s grand re-opening. With Supervisor McKay on hand, LMVSC was proud to cut the ribbon. Free play, food, and plenty of sunshine for all our families who came out.
Due to the financial stress the COVID-19 Pandemic has created on so many, LMVSC partnered with the Department of Neighborhood and Community Services/Athletic Services Division and the Fairfax Athletes Stand Together” (F.A.S.T) program to hold a food drive. Players and parents alike came out to help support those in our community in need.
