News and Announcements
The BYSC Pre-Travel & 1st - 3rd Grade Clinic Programs were established in the Fall 2007 Season. The chief purpose of these programs is to offer a unique training opportunity and competitive format for those young boys and girls interested in the Travel Soccer Program.
Training will be provided by pre-selected professional licensed trainers under the supervision of Bob Martin and Vincent Kwarula. Training methods and techniques will be similar to that of travel teams. Two training sessions will be conducted each week - one weekday afternoon and one Saturday. Competitive games will be coordinated and scheduled with BYSC and other local age appropriate travel teams. While high quality training is the main focus of these programs, there are numerous related features of the travel program that will be addressed:
Players will have a better understanding of the tryout process and the required commitment that is needed. This will allow the transition and try out to be less stressful for both players and families.
Try-outs for future boys and girls U-8 and U-9 teams will be coordinated through the Pre-Travel & 1st - 3rd Grade Clinic Programs. Player selections for Travel Teams will be made by the Travel Committee at the end of the Fall and Spring sessions, based on tryouts and trainer evaluations.
Successful completion of the Pre-Travel & 1 st - 3rd Grade Clinic Programs is becoming the pre-requisite to the Travel Program. Essentially - subject to a display of extraordinary skill and knowledge of the game and rules - those players that do not participate in the Pre-Travel Program will likely need to spend at least one season in Pre-Travel. This does not preclude any child from trying out for travel; it is just that it is a major advantage to have participated in pre-travel.
All children must be born before MAY 31st 2014 to be eligible for the Winter 2018 Program

The BYSC In-house program is a for-fun, non-competitive developmental program focused on skills, sportsmanship, team play and a knowledge of the game. As it is often the first organized sport a child plays, we are intent on making it a fun experience for children and their families. It is also intended to develop travel soccer aptitude, for those children who have the desire to transition to travel, which is more serious and more competitive.
CHECK BACK IN FEBRUARY FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THE SPRING SESSION DATES AND REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Due to insufficient numbers to run separate programs, the second and third graders were combined in both the coed and girls programs. System limitations prevent you from seeing entire rosters on the registration site (we apologize for this but it's a third party registration system).
Also, these same limitations prevent full roster views for children participating in both the midweek training clinic and a Sat. parent coached team.
Please note we did our best to accommodate all requests for team assignments, coaches and the like. As such, we are unable to process any requests to change teams at this point.
Please Contact BYSC if you have other questions or concerns.

* We recognize that Saturday 9/19 is an important holiday (Rosh Hashanah) for many in our community. While we respect all religious observances, the board has elected to facilitate recreational soccer for those not observing the holiday. Due to a late falling Labor Day, the season is already only nine weeks vs. the usual ten. We made this choice due to the limited number of weeks, the recreational nature of the in-house program (children observing are not missing a league game), and after consulting with various soccer and youth sports programs around the area, the region and the U.S.
