Registration

Registration

Our organization is split into two streams:
House League
The House stream is open to players of all skill level from ages 4 (as of Aug 31). All House games are played in Squamish.
Select Programs
The Select programs require that players be evaluated prior to being accepted on a team. Select teams play at various locations in the lower mainland as well as home games.
The Select program consists of three levels of progression as our players grow: Prospects (U8 & U9), Development (U10-U12), and Select (U13-U18) teams. The Prospects training group register and play in the House league as well as participate in extra training, and possibly exhibition games and tournaments. Select and Development players register in their respective programs here:
  • Prospects Registration – only for U8 & U9 players who wish to participate in the Prospects training program.  This is in addition to registering and playing in the House league.
  • Training Player Registration – only for players who have been evaluated and accepted as Training Players on Development and Select teams.  This is in addition to registering and playing in the House league.

New 2 Season Approach…

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 were we will have either the SYSA Head Coach or another paid coach running the practices with the volunteer coaches assisting. The training sessions for the week will be sent out to coaches prior to the actual session so they can be well prepared to assist.

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.

There are three ways to register…

Online

We only accept Mastercard, Visa or cheque online (sorry no debit cards). If you haven’t registered in the last few years you will have to create a user account by clicking on New User. Otherwise, please use the login info from previous seasons. If you choose to pay by cheque your registration will not be complete and we won’t be able to assign your child to a team until we receive payment. Please mail your cheque in with a copy of each registration confirmation email we send you so that we know who the payment is for.

Team Placement

Registration will not be complete and the player(s) will not be placed on a team until registration and all fees are honoured.
If you feel your child should be playing up or down from the age group they are registered in you must make an application stating the reasons. Staying with friends/peers is not a valid reason.
Teams will be made up of players in the same age group and same gender. Players from the same family and same age group are placed on the same team, others are placed to balance the teams as closely as possible.
Players must go through the registration system to be placed on a team, not through a team’s coach.
Each year we receive so many requests to place a child with a specific coach or on the same team with a friend. As it is impossible to satisfy all these requests, not to mention the extra work required of our volunteer coordinators to attempt it, we will not accept such requests.

Refund Policy

When a player is registered, and the appropriate fees are fully paid, a refund (less an admin fee) may be granted only under the following conditions:
  • The request for refund is received in writing from the payee by the Registrar (registrar@squamishsoccer.ca) and must include a mailing address for the refund cheque.
  • The request is received no later than September 30th.
  • The team jersey (if issued) has been returned. After September 30th, the Registrar (registrar@squamishsoccer.ca) should be notified of withdrawal in order to update team player lists. Please also tell your coach if you are leaving the team.

NSF Policy

Payments for registration that are returned NSF will be subject to a $25.00 NSF fee. The player(s) will be removed from team lists, and will l have to be re-registered, providing there is still room available.

Financial Assistance

We don’t want to see any child miss out on soccer because of financial considerations. There are several organizations which provide financial assistance for children to play sports. A few are:

KidSport Squamish:
Kidsport Squamish logoKidsport Squamish believes that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports. We raise funds in the community to help achieve our mission: removing the financial barriers so that all children can participate in sports programs.

Jumpstart:
Jumpstart Charities gives kids a sporting chance. Participating in sport helps kids develop physical and social skills. It helps build self-esteem. By helping kids get into the game, we’re equipping them with determination. And we’re giving them confidence that will extend beyond practices and games.

SYSA also provides assistance, but you must try the others first, email us for more information.
