Spring Registration is Closed.
There were a few changes implemented beginning this past Fall 2017 SYSA Soccer Season, but nothing too drastic.
1. VYSA (Virginia Youth Soccer Association) has mandated new age cut off dates. All players will be abiding by these new dates. In the old system the age groups were August to July now it is the birth year. Because the school year in VA cut off date is the end of September SYSA allowed all players to born in August and September to “play up” with their school age group, if they chose. Because this new dates are January to December each age group is going to be a mix of two grades at school. We will try to make the teams somewhat balanced by grades. But we no longer have the choice of “playing up with the grade” because it will be a mix of grades. It will be an adjustment but SYSA will muddle through.
2. Loudoun County Parks and Recreation has changed the date that they need final numbers for field allocations because of this we are ending registration on April 6. After February 19, there will no longer be a discount for registration. What does this mean to you – sign up early! Actually, if you sign up today through February 20, you will get a $10-$15 per player discount off the registration of (U4/U5 $125-now only $115 and U6-U19 $185- now only $170)!!
From Spring to Fall we shuffle the deck for U4-U11 teams so there will be a new fall team and new teammates, just like in the fall school year. For the U12 and above we try to keep the teams together if the coach is returning and most of the players are returning. Due to the age guidelines there will be some switches or options, but we will deal with that once registration and team formation happens.We always need coaches and other volunteers. Volunteering is not hard and it is a great way to spend time with your child and his/her teammates. We also use our volunteers to support the coaches, team parents, field lining and field clean up. If you don’t want to volunteer and don’t want to be bothered you can pay the Volunteer Buy Out fee.
