Soccer Mandates

Player Registration: The registration of youth players will shift to calendar-year age grouping, as opposed to the previous school-year age grouping. With the new age matrix in affect, YSYSL will now be U6-U18.

Small Sided Games: All youth soccer will be converting over to small sided games. With those changes, our field sizes, goal size and number of players on the field will be changing in order to meet the new guidelines.

The benefits of having the small sided games is for the players to have more touches on the ball, different positions, and an overall better understanding of the game. Which in turn, will make for more fun on the field. 

Heading: Heading of the ball is banned for all players 10 years old and younger.
