News and Announcements
Due to the field conditions at Cisqua, the PRE-K and KINDERGARTEN programs are cancelled for today, Saturday September 12, 2009. However, all Pre-k and Kindergarten COACHES are asked to attend a short coaching demonstration and shirt distribution today at 9 a.m. in the pole barn at Cisqua.
All other programs are running. Coaches and parents of these programs are advised to use thier discretion if the weather worsens.
Travel fees vary based on the program (Castleford or BYSC).
Your travel fee includes league fees, insurance, field fees, referee fees, balls and equipment, etc., as well as the cost of professional training. All teams will be coached by professional trainers throughout the season. The only incremental costs would be for winter training (if your child participates) and tournaments.
Travel fees are established each season after the club has a understanding of various costs such as league fees, and insurance, and after securing professional trainers for the year. The fees are communicated each year via email, and are visible during registration on the club registration site (available via "Registration and WYSL Links" when registration is open).
Travel refund policy:
Due to the competitive nature of travel teams, the need to properly size teams for quantity and skill levels, and many other costs and implications, league fees are non-refundable unless your child does not make a team. Once your child is assigned to a team, if you or your child changes their mind about playing soccer, you will receive a refund of your training fees if you advise your coach of the decision 24 hrs after accepting your place. Otherwise none of your fees will be refunded.
For both travel and in-house, discounts are available for families with three or more players in the program, and hardship scholarships are also available (full and partial). Please contact us for more information.
The New York Soccer Club is an elite level soccer academy that is affiliated with BYSC.
Founded by local Bedford residents Mark Heffernan (who has been involved in youth soccer in Bedford for many years) and Claudio Reyna, one of the most gifted and accomplished American soccer players of all time, this program offers training and development to the most talented players in the area for programs beginning at the u-12 level.
This affiliation offer the following advantages to young soccer players and our community
1) Access to the highest level of training available in the area
2) A local program, that saves parents and kids considerable time (and gas) relative to other elite programs they may have to travel to in Westchester, Fairfield, Long Island or Northern NJ.
3) The ability of our in-house and travel programs to tap into curriculums and training session developed by leading coaches and instructors with no additional cost
4) The prospect of a highly competitive (regionally and nationally) High School program on a consistent and ongoing basis, which will raise the esteem of students and the community, and increase visibility and scholarship opportunities with leading colleges and universities.

BYSC is a non-profit organization. All members of our board, as well as almost all of our coaches, are volunteer parents from the community.
As is often the case in volunteer organizations, there is almost always more to do than there are people to do it.
We always need coaches, team managers, administrative help, community relations assistance, and help with field preparations and organizing practice and play.
Additionally, we have many volunteer, as well as paid opportunities for teens and young adults to get involved with the league. Those with a passion for soccer and appropriate knowledge can be hired as paid trainers or referees, and both pay attractive hourly wages.
PLEASE CHECK THE HANDOUTS TAB FOR FLYERS DETAILING CURRENT VOLUNTEER NEEDS.
If you are interested in helping out in other ways, please get in touch with the club by emailing us @ firstname.lastname@example.org or feel free to contact any of our board members (board member contact information is available on the "Board" tab).
