SYSA is pleased to provide the following information and resources to assist you in determining if you would like to coach, figuring out how to coach (for you first timers – thanks for volunteering) or becoming a better coach for you veterans (thanks for volunteering). These resources will help to ensure your players are maximizing their potential while enjoying the game. These documents provide important information regarding age appropriate lesson plans, how to deal with parental issues, how to organize a practice, age specific fun games and much, much more. They are meant to be a supplement to the coaches handbook you received at the coaches meeting, although some of these items are directly in the handbook. If you are new, a good place to start is the coaches pledge.
U4 – U5 only have sessions for one hour on Saturday mornings – no practices
U6 – U10 have two one hour practices a week, either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday.

The coaches database allows you to view and print your roster including family contact information, email or text your team, and submit player ratings.
Player ratings are completed by the head coaches only. Please access the coaches database to rate your team. After signing in, your roster will be shown with last season’s ratings. Use the drop down boxes to assign ratings for each player. Please make sure to click submit upon completion.
Setting up your Team
Just a reminder that ALL teams have to create a 2017-2018 database. Do not use the 2016 – 2017 database, create a new one. Once the primary team contact (most likely the Team Manager) sets up their team they will then get a username/password emailed to them.
1. Each coach, manager and assistant coach must register here first.
After created and want to go back into their database for changes etc they go to this link https://www.youthleaguesusa.com/vysa/2012/RiskManagement.html
2. Once the team officials are registered you can start building the team.
**Once you start this process your user id and password will be emailed to you. You DO NOT need it to start to register your team, only to get back into the system once you have logged out**
