Coaches

SYSA values its volunteer and professional coaches.  We know that our programs would not succeed without the generous donation of time and energy that every volunteer coach gives to their team.  Our Coaches spend a significant chunk of time on the field with our kids every week, not including the time spent planning practices, communicating with their teams and traveling to and from games and practices.  

We reward our volunteer coaches in our Challenge and Travel programs with a partial refund of their child's league registration fee 
  • Competitive team = $335, for teams with all volunteer coaches, may be lower for teams with pro coaches. Additionally that player is eligible for a reduced rate for indoor soccer if their parent is coaching their team.
  • Recreational team = $167 + fees incurred to meet Coach Requirements (below) on the team that they are coaching for Fall & Spring seasons.
