House League

Structure

Our house program is separated into boys and girls divisions which are further sub-divided by age groups.  If, for some reason you believe it is in the best interest of your child to play up or down an age group, then you must apply for this variance.  Please refer to the Policies and Procedures manual.

Season

From a lot of feedback over the last few years and highlighted by this year’s snowy winter SYSA has gone with a two season approach for the 2017/18 season.

The first part from Sept – Nov/Dec 2017 will be very similar to it has always been. Various age divisions and “league” games every Sat morning.

The biggest change from previous years is that we will have set practice days and times where all players of an age group train at the same time. Practices will be run by team coaches under the guidance of a SYSA head coach or staff coach. The training curriculum will be provided by SYSA to coaches prior to sessions so that coaches are well prepared. This will help with both player and coach development and help foster a SYSA model of playing and coaching.  We will be looking for feedback from coaches through the sessions on areas that they would like to see player development in.

The second season is something new that we are going to try based again on member feedback and also success that we saw this March and from other clubs.

There will be no set teams and instead there will be a Jamboree format for each of the age groups U6-U12. Meaning that players of an age group will show up and split into warm up drills and then split into small sided games. This will focus on lots of touches on the ball and fun!

U13+ house league for both seasons will participate in a coed league that will play on Friday evenings and have a training session during the week.

We are hoping this new format will help with player and coach development and provide an opportunity to not play in winter conditions.  As it is the first year for SYSA running this we will be looking for feedback throughout the year.

Coaches begin contacting their players towards the end of August and the beginning of September.  Some coaches might be away so be patient if you haven’t heard from your coach when others have.  However, if you haven’t heard from your coach and there is only a week left until the season starts they please contact your division coordinator (see contact info below).  Note that if you registered late it does take a few days for your registration to be processed before the coach is notified.

Conduct

Please familiarize yourself with our Bullying Policy.  Poor behaviour by players, parents, spectators, coaches, or referees is NOT acceptable.  If you witness what you perceive to be unacceptable behaviour at a game please tell someone (coach, coordinator, executive member as appropriate, see the Contact Us page).  We can’t fix it if we don’t know about it.

Age Group Coordinators

Our wonderful, hard working, age group coordinators are the ones who get the league off the launch pad so to speak.  If you see them please give them a big Thank You!  If you have questions about an age group they’re the ones to contact first.
