Soccer is a great way to introduce children to sports through team play. SCCYSA emphasizes teaching the fundamentals of soccer and REQUIRES that each child plays at least one half of each game. SCCYSA’s recreational outdoor program is designed to develop and challenge players, but most of all, allow them to have fun. SCCYSA is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organization committed to providing our community with a value priced, high quality soccer program. Over 6000 kids participate annually.

TEAM ORGANIZATION: SCCYSA allows teams to remain together from one season to the next. Once your child is on a team he/she can stay on that team until you request off. All players must register for each season. New players are welcomed and will be placed on teams. SCCYSA strives to balance teams when adding players into the division, and therefore, requests to play for a specific coach or with a specific player will only be honored at the discretion of the SCCYSA board. Additionally, if desired, parents may request their child to be placed onto a different team at the conclusion of any season.
SCHEDULE: Regular scheduled games are primarily played on Saturdays between 8am-5pm and Sundays between 12pm-5pm. High School games are played during the week and on Sunday evenings. Opening weekend will be March 8 & 9, 2014. We make every effort to play 8 regular season games. Mother Nature does not always cooperate with our schedule so make up games are held weekend evenings and weeknights where lit fields are available and only if needed.
PRACTICES: SCCYSA does not provide practice schedule or practice locations. SCCYSA Coaches are parent volunteers; and they will be responsible for scheduling the place and time for practice, if they choose.
