Expectations for Comp Players

A few things you should know about what it means to be on a 2015-2016 SYSA-PFC team. 

Commitment? 

Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 seasons with optional winter sessions (details below).
Fall season runs from late August through the end of October.
Spring season runs from early April through early June.
Each season is approximately 9 weeks long and includes 8 weekend games (Saturdays or Sundays) and two 75-90 minute practices.
Boys teams generally practice Monday & Wednesday.
Girls teams generally practice Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Teams are expected to go to one tournament per season. Tournaments are usually local and will take up most of a weekend.

Fee Schedule: 

$325 League Fee for all players (covers 2 practices and a game, fall & spring season, includes $25 city field fee)
$200 Pro Coach Training Fee for U11-U14 A teams (covers 2 pro-coach practices with a volunteer coach at games)
Some grandfathered teams may pay $100 more based on pro-coaches at their games.
Fees are due at time of registration. $25 Late Fee goes into effect on June 20. Payment plans are available, whereby total payment can be split into 3 monthly payments.
Refunds only given for major injuries or if a family relocates beyond a reasonable travel distance.

Expectation? 

Players are expected to attend all practices and games.
Players who attend practices and cooperate with their coaches can expect at least 50% playing time in a game.

Enrichment Opportunities? 

Pro Clinics are offered to all players at an additional cost.
Information on these clinics will be forthcoming once each season is underway.
Fees: $50/season Fall & Spring $125/session Winter

What about Winter? 

Participation is optional. We offer 2 sessions, each is 8 weeks long and includes 8 weekend games (Boys games Saturdays, Girls games Sundays) and a weekly hour long practice.
Ideally our competitive players will participate in 2 indoor sessions during the winter months at Force Indoor Sports.
Fees: $200/session with a volunteer coach, $275/session with a pro coach at practice only, $325/session with a pro coach at practice and game.
Discounted fees are available for players who register in advance for both sessions. Payment plans available.
Fees may be higher for teams that practice more than once per week or play in other Leagues.
Indoor registration details will be forthcoming in late September.

How can I help? 

Every team needs volunteers! Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Team Managers, Team Uniform Managers and Team Tournament Managers are all needed for your child's team. If you are interested in one of these jobs, please consult our website (VOLUNTEER tab) for additional information.
Please consider volunteering for one of these jobs if you accept a roster spot for your player.  We cannot operate without the generous support of our volunteers.
