Pawtucket Youth Soccer: Welcome

On behalf of the PYSA Board
we would like to welcome you to our site.  

We are a non-profit, youth soccer organization serving Pawtucket and many surrounding areas.  We offer recreational and competitive soccer programs for young players ages 8 through 19. 

We are a member of Soccer Rhode Island and the US Youth Soccer Association.

In addition to teaching soccer skills, our goal is to help prepare our players for the future.  We teach sportsmanship, fair play and team building. We stress hard work and staying in school.

We aim to:

  • Provide a safe environment for kids to play soccer
  • Promote good sportsmanship, regardless of the outcome of the game
  • Support the development of individual players at all levels
  • Develop strong leadership skills
  • Promote good, healthy choices that will result in better health outcomes for the players

One of our goals is to make playing soccer affordable for all kids.  We can't do it without your help!  Becoming a sponsor of Pawtucket Youth Soccer Association is a fantastic opportunity to support the club and give a player who otherwise couldn't afford it a chance to play the game. To become PYSA sponsor, please contact us at: or (401)729-9565

Soccer Cleats VS Baseball Cleats

You can’t play soccer in baseball cleats.

(if you don’t mind cutting the tip on the shoe you can make a baseball cleat acceptable by cutting off the toe cleat.)

You can see the missing toe cleat on the soccer cleats.

 Referees have been instructed to not allow a player to play with the front toe cleat. Please make sure that your child's shoes are ok to play. We would hate to have a child sit out a game because of incorrect equipment. 

Sneakers are a great alternative if you do not want to make the investment. The ONLY requirement to play is Shin guards.


Lightning Safety
1. Go to a SAFE evacuation sites include:
a. Fully enclosed metal vehicles with windows up.
b. Substantial buildings.
c. The low ground. Seek cover in clumps of bushes.

2. UNSAFE SHELTER AREAS include all outdoor metal objects like flag poles,
fences and gates,
high mast light poles, metal bleachers, golf cars, machinery, etc. AVOID trees.
AVOID water.
AVOID open fields. AVOID the high ground.

3. Lightning's distance from you is easy to calculate: if you hear thunder, it
and the associated
lightning are within auditory range?about 6-8 miles away. The distance from
Strike A to Strike B
also can be 6-8 miles. Ask yourself why you should NOT go to shelter
immediately. Of course,
different distances to shelter will determine different times to suspend
activities. A good lightning
safety motto is: 'If you can see it (lightning) flee it; if you can hear it
(thunder), clear it.'

4. If you feel your hair standing on end, and/or hear 'crackling noises' - you
are in lightning's
electric field. If caught outside during close-in lightning, immediately remove
metal objects
(including baseball cap), place your feet together, duck your head, and crouch
down low in
baseball catcher's stance with hands on knees.

5. Wait a minimum of 30 minutes from the last observed lightning or thunder
before resuming

6. People who have been struck by lightning do not carry an electrical charge
and are safe to
handle. Apply first aid immediately if you are qualified to do so. Get emergency
help promptly.

Be Safe!!!
