**** SPRING 2016 UPDATE****
The Spring 2016 outdoor season begins Saturday April 9th and will end June 11th. There will be no games Memorial Day Weekend.
The location of each program will not be determined until likely 1-2 weeks prior to the start of the season, so please check back for updates.
Please register prior to February 15th which is when our $25 late fee goes into effect. If you miss that date, then be SURE to register prior to our $100 late fee which takes effect March 15th.
For 1st graders, we run an "Academy" style program which meets once per week on Saturdays starting at 8:30. Sessions are 1 hour long. Players are assigned a time slot and field which will remain unchanged each week. Each training session will be run by a professional coach and will be a split between skill training and a small sided game (typically 4v4 with no goalies). The children will progress through a curriculum specifically tailored to their age group. The focus of our first grade program is to establish a solid foundation of ball skills for all players which will serve as their building blocks for years to come.
Equipment: All players are required to wear shin-pads (shin-pads should be worn under a player's soccer socks). Cleats are recommended by not required. Water is essential!
Volunteer Coaches: Volunteer Coaches are the lifeblood of our organization. Both you and the children will benefit immensely from your involvement. Experience is not required. Your role will be to act in a hands on way to assist the Pro Coaches in executing the training. During 4v4 play, our coaches will run subs for one of the groups and keep the game flowing. Our focus is to help you get involved, learn the game, enjoy the rewards of your hands on participation and continue to build with NYS as your child hopefully becomes more and more involved in soccer.
