Competitive Program

What if I register my child as a Competitive player and I decide not to take them to any of the recreational games / practices?

One of the great opportunities of combining the two leagues is to give the recreational players an opportunity to play and learn at a higher level.  If your child doesn’t participate in the recreational program, you would be affecting a lot more than just your own child.  As a result it would have a negative ripple effect on the recreational league and recreational player development.  The Director of Registration spends a lot of time making the teams equal and therefore competitive.  If competitive kids do not support their recreational teams the teams would become lopsided, and those teams would be at a disadvantage.  In addition the other children will have lost the chance to learn from the competitive kids and push themselves to become better players as well

If my child plays both Competitive and Recreational in the Fall how many practices can I expect each week?

We have asked the coaches to limit practices to one for each team.  So in theory your child would practice one day with the recreational team and one day with the competitive team.

If my child plays both Competitive and Recreational in the Fall how many games will there be each week?

CYSA recreational league takes place on Saturday mornings and Sunday afternoons.  The league will play both days of the weekend some weekends and only on Saturday on others (unless there are rain outs).  The competitive teams usually only play once during the weekend.

What happens when scheduling conflicts occur during the season between the recreational and competitve games?

There is no doubt that conflicts will occur.  The registrar will spread the competitive children out evenly across the league(s).  As such, when a conflict in the schedule occurs ALL of the competitive players will be away at the competitive game and the recreational league teams ALL will be short those players and play with the recreational players only.

My child wants to play Fall Competitive why do they have to play in the Recreational League as well?

The Fall League has been traditionally a recreational time of the year for soccer.   In 2008 CYSA voted to participate in the SuperLiga Fall Competitive Program at the U12 and U14 age levels (there was no U10 SuperLiga league available).  The effect this had on the recreational league was that all of the U12 and U14 had to be coed to support the minimum number of teams required to have a league.  In 2010 the CYSA Board of Directors voted to allow the U10 (Now a U10 SuperLiga league is available) to have one competitive team for both the boys and girls divisions.  In order to maintain the number of teams in the girls/boys recreational league and not turn it into a coed division, the board mandated for only the U10 Competitive group that they must play in the recr
