Message from the President

 

I want to thank the board for giving me the opportunity to lead Fulton Youth Soccer again this year. Though my husband may not agree, this is really a great job and among the best uses of my free time. This will also be my last year with FYS since my youngest child has aged out of the program and my 3 year term will be finished. But we have a lot to look forward to this year and we are ready to hit the ground running with some great changes and enhancements.

We are starting a new division called Lil Kickers. It’s for 3-4 year olds to get their feet wet before joining the U6 division and will be a non-competitive league stressing ball handling and basic rules of the game. Our U6 division will now be for players already 4 or turning 4 years old during their first season of soccer. Lil Kickers will be Tuesdays 5 - 5:45pm and $25/season.

We are also changing our travel teams from the traditional set up of traveling to different cities in the area to playing all their games at the Jones Rd outdoor facility in Baldwinsville. This change will be less expensive, less paperwork and less travel for families. The main advantage will be our players will face teams from the area that they will play in their junior high and high school careers. Teams can sign up through FYS and practice at the Chase Rd fields.

More information on both of these programs will be available on our Facebook page (Fulton Youth Soccer League), on our website, and at the Registration nights in February and March. In the last year we have found Facebook to be very helpful in getting out information in a timely manner and helping folks connect within our organization. As long as we keep it for those purposes we will continue to be successful.

I have really enjoyed working with the families of Fulton Youth Soccer and though we have not all agreed all the time, we do agree that this is a great program for our kids and we get out what we put in. So thank you all for putting your best into this program and may we continue to grow and prosper in the coming years.

See you on the field,

Chris Hansen

 

Founded in 1978, the Fulton Youth Soccer League strives to teach children between the ages of 5 and 14, soccer fundamentals, teamwork and good sportsmanship. The FYSL offers both an In-House League and a Travel League. Fulton Youth Soccer League provides a healthy and wholesome environment for families to gather. It's a place where parents can join their children and assist them in learning to play soccer with no measured standards of achievement. The child can experience the thrill of competition, learn responsibility to the coach and to teammates, and enjoy playing soccer. Our In-House League offers a non-competitive atmosphere for the 5yr - 12yr old players. The In-House League's primary objectives are to teach basic soccer fundamentals, good sportsmanship, discipline, and fun. Here the emphasis is not on winning, but rather the love of the game. Each player, no matter the age or ability level, will have equal playing time and will be encouraged to do his or her best. For those with a more competitive spirit, FYSL also offers a travel league for the 10yr - 19yr old players. The Travel League plays against other league teams within the Central New York State area. Here,the level of play emphasizes team and individual performance. This is introduced in preparation for the more intensive and mature competition encountered at the middle and high school levels.

Our 2014 Board of Directors
