The SYA Copperheads ended a long run with the culmination of all the boys going to college and with 18 of them playing at their respective school.  This long journey took the team from the NCSL Division 4 to the Champions of NCSL U16 Division 2, the U17 State Cup Finalist, the Champions of NCSL U19 Division 1, and the champions of multiple top college showcases and tournaments.  In addition to ranking 1st in Virginia, the Copperheads were ranked as high as 23rd in the country.   

The Copperheads played a highly-competitive, attractive style of soccer, while encouraging creativity and self-expression.  The program had a heavy focus on preparing the players to compete with top NCAA College teams in a supportive and encouraging environment.  In the spring of 2010 the Copperheads also competed in the Region 1 league.
