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.
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.
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.
On the last day of soccer in April we hold separate wind up ceremonies for U6-U12 and U13-U18 age groups. This is where we recognize players and teams. This is also where players will return their uniform jersey to their coach and receive their deposit cheque in return. If jerseys aren’t returned to the coach by the end of April the deposit cheque will be cashed.
Please familiarize yourself with 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, coodinator, executive member as appropriate, see the Contact Us page). We can’t fix it if we don’t know about it.
