Are you a new player or considering playing with SYSA?

Here are some frequently asked questions about playing in our coed recreational soccer program...

Q: WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

Shinguards are mandatory for ALL divisions, age 4-14

Socks that cover the shinguards OR there are some styles of shinguard that are designed with a cloth covering over the plastic so socks are not needed. 

Comfortable shorts, sweats or nylon pants (depending on the weather)

Soccer cleatsNOT ALLOWED IN SCATTERBALL (age 4-5/kindergarten)

 - NOT REQUIRED but recommended for better traction when playing soccer.

**PLEASE NOTE: Cleats must be SOCCER CLEATSNOT baseball cleats that have a spike at the toe - These are dangerous for soccer and NOT ALLOWED

Team Shirt: SYSA provides team shirts for all players. These are on loan for the season-you take it home every week and launder it, then return it at the end of the season. This helps to to keep registration costs affordable.

Water: For keeping hydrated and ready to play on game day. Sports drinks, juice or soda are not recommended due to high sugar content.

Q: WHEN WILL MY TEAM PRACTICE?

SCATTERBALL (age 4,5/kindergarten): Practices are on game day. Approximately the first 30 minutes of the scheduled game time on Sunday afternoon is "practice". The second 30 minutes is for the game. No practices during the week.

SOCCER: In the fall of 2013, SYSA piloted a weekly training session with a professional coach and it was very successful. We have continued the program and coaches find it very helpful to expand their knowledge of developmentally appropriate skills games/drills that are engaging for the players.

Here is how it works-All teams/coaches come to a common training session on the Plains in Kingston. The pro trainer chooses one team and demonstrates a training game/drill. Then the teams break out into their own spot on the field and practice that game for about 15 minutes. The pro-trainer circulates among the teams/coaches to give pointers. All teams re-convene to watch as the pro demonstrates the next game with another team and the process repeats.

MINI-MITES (Grade 1 & 2) Saturday mornings, 8:30-10:00 am.

JUNIORS & SENIORS (Grade 3 - 8) Saturday mornings, 10:15-11:45 am.

ADDITIONAL PRACTICE SESSIONS may be held during the week at the discretion of individual coaches. Any coach/team that is not able to make it to the Saturday morning session will have a practice at another time, depending on the schedule of the individual coach and consensus of players.

PLAYING TIME DURING GAMES IS NOT PREDICATED ON ATTENDING PRACTICE OR HOW MANY PRACTICE SESSIONS ANY PLAYER ATTENDS. This is recreational soccer and coaches are instructed to allow all players to play at least one half of every game. But, we certainly encourage players to attend practice as often as possible to learn & increase their skills.

Q-DO THE GAMES HAVE REFEREES?

Yes, SYSA has a team of referees, most of whom are "patched" (they have completed a licensing course with the NH Soccer Association). The refs are local middle & high school students, most of whom have played for SYSA in the past and/or play for their school or travel soccer teams.

Q-WILL I/MY CHILD NEED TO PARTICIPATE IN FUND-RAISING?

NO-NEVER!!!! SYSA is extremely proud of the fact that we DO NOT DO ANY FUNDRAISING. Using team shirts that are recycled each season, registration fees and our REFRESHMENT STAND provide the funds we need to operate. So, we ask that you patronize the refreshments stand on Sundays.

Q-I WOULD LIKE TO COACH A TEAM. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?

During the registration process, there is a place for you to volunteer. If you are the primary coach of your child(ren's) team, one child will play for no cost. All coaches must complete a background check through the NH Soccer Association (info given after you sign up). Coaches are given support in the form of weekly Saturday morning sessions with our pro-trainer, online resources as well as training booklets and DVDs that you may borrow. We also have a coordinator of coaching who can come out to your practice session and give you support.

If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact SYSA President, Michael Gannon, [email protected] or call 642-3365
