The Seguin Youth Soccer Club is announcing a new name and logo for the teams that play at the “competitive” level. These teams play within the Alamo Area Youth soccer teams that range from Boerne to Flatonia to include all of the San Antonio teams.

 

 

 

 

 

Fifteen years ago you would have heard the name “Seguin Sidekicks” for the traveling teams from Seguin Youth Soccer.  The SYSC Board, with the help of Dr. Bob Stephens, who is a coach for one of the teams, updated the name and logo to “FC Seguin”.  “FC” is a traditional title that stands for Football Club.  And although our players have come from as far as Stockdale, Nixon- Smiley and LaVernia, we still chose to focus our name on the City of Seguin since that is where we were founded.  In fact, current City Councilman Nick Carillo was on one of the original boards that created SYSC, along with other great volunteers.

 

 

 

The change reflects the growth in soccer in Seguin, especially at the competitive level.  Our teams start at the recreational level, or Division III, and at the competitive level, or Division II.  SYSC has four traveling teams this year as compared to two last year. And as an added bonus, all four teams made it to the first round of the Championship playoffs due to their Fall 2011 season schedule.

 

 

 

The soccer classifications represent an age group; so for example, our oldest team is an Under 19 team made up of 18 and 17 year olds.  Our other teams are a u/16, u/13 and u/11 teams that all made it to the first round of playoffs! This is representative the commitment made by the coaches, players and families to play soccer at a higher level.  The two younger teams played in the Division III recreation league while the two older teams are playing Division II competitive soccer.

 

 

 

We are grateful that the growth of recreational soccer here in Seguin has allowed us to support these older competitive teams in a way that positively represent SYSC and the City of Seguin.
