LOUYAA is an organization of winners – from the athletes who learn and compete with sportsmanship and heart to the hundreds of LOUYAA officers, coaches, parents and other volunteers who make these programs possible. Here are just a few examples of what makes LOUYAA people so special.
CMRC WILL ENTEN TOURNAMENT CHAMPS! 11/3/15
Congratulations to the LOUYAA Alliance U10C Earthquake Soccer Team, coached by Chad Causey, on winning the U10 bracket of the tournament this past weekend. Coach Causey, stated “I am so proud of the team effort they put forth in the tournament today. One sub and four games. They all played their hearts out. It was a total team effort. We could not have won 1st place without the great defense, the goalies (volunteers), the mid field, who ran both up front and sprinted back to defense, and the offense who crossed the ball, had great breakaways, and some goals that would have made highlight reels.” Congrats to the Players and Parents!
Congrats to a great year!

CELEBRATING 35 YEARS OF YOUTH FOOTBALL
After taking his son to play in Germantown in 1978, Denzil Mathews decided it was time to bring youth football to the Linganore Area. So in 1979, Matthews formed the 1st Flag Football team for Linganore Youth Football. Games were played on land donated from Wilcoms near the 75/80 race way. The 1st year was a struggle to get started and to keep the players interested. Not even a full season was played, but it was the start of Linganore Youth Football.
Today, Linganore’s football program is about 200 players strong and the program is back in the Mountain Valley Youth Football League (MVYFL) after playing in the Mid-Maryland Youth Football and Cheer League (MVYFL) for just over a decade. The Linganore program is happy to be back in the MVYFL; a league where they started nearly 35 years ago!
