  Welcome  
 

SYSA patch
WELCOME Soccer Players, fans and friends!

Welcome to Sanborn Youth Soccer Association's Website!

We are a small (about 250 players) community organization dedicated to promoting the game, fun, and sportsmanship of playing soccer.
We have both a recreational program (co-ed, ages 4-13, anyone can play) and a competitive/travel program (need to try out annually, travel to other NH towns). Our players and families come primarily from Kingston & Newton, NH but those from surrounding towns are also welcome to join.

We love soccer and play because it's FUN!

Questions/comments may be addressed to:
President, Cheryl Gannon, 642-3365 / c.gannon@comcast.net

WEEK 3 SOCCER GAMES

Summer returned on Sep 21 - the first day of.... Fall?

The team photo shoot went well and the finished prints will be sent to your homes when they are done in several weeks.

GAMES-I saw several very competitive games this week. The players look like they are developing skills and having fun!

EYEGLASSES:  if a player wears eyeglasses during the game, please be sure to have a strap to keep them from falling off and possibly getting damaged. 

BIKES & DOGS- are not allowed on Chase Field. This is a policy of Sanborn Regional School District and SYSA players & fans are obliged to follow their rules so that we may continue to use the facilities.

COLD WEATHER: Cooler temps are on the way and players will want to wear long sleeves or sweatshirts to stay warm. Please wear these UNDER your uniform shirt so referees and players can tell who is on their team.

FAN SEATING: With the exception of scatterball, fans for both teams should be seated on the opposite side of the field from the 2 teams of players. Fans should not be seated or standing anywhere near the goal as it is a distraction for this special player who needs to be attentive to balls being shot directly at him/her.

REFRESHMENT STAND: Thanks for supporting our program by patronizing our refreshment stand. This enables us to keep registration fees affordable for all and to keep SYSA  A FUNDRAISER-FREE ZONE!

SYSA RECREATIONAL SOCCER FAQs

Are you a new player or considering playing with SYSA?

Here are some frequently asked questions about playing recreational soccer....

Q: WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

Shinguards are mandatory for all divisions, age 4-13

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. For players who have never played with SYSA, you will receive a complimentary pair of socks your first season playing with us.

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

Soccer cleats: NOT ALLOWED IN SCATTERBALL (age 4-5/kindergarten)

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

**PLEASE NOTE: Cleats must be SOCCER CLEATS, NOT 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 did this with just the Mini-Mite & Junior divisions but will expand it to the Senior division the spring, 2014 season.

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 amongst the teams 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 consenus 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.

Q-DO THE GAMES HAVE REFEREES?

Yes, SYSA has a team of referees who 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.

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

Check the box in the "Volunteer" section of the registration form. 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 beginning with an orientation session 2 weeks before the season starts, weekly Saturday morning sessions with our pro-trainer, online resources as well as training booklets and videos 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, Cheryl Gannon, c.gannon@comcast.net or call 642-3365

NEXT YEAR SUMMER CAMP: We have decided to try offering a full day camp for ages 6-12.  It will run from 9:00-3:00. Our numbers were very low this year despite the postivie response from kids & parents so we are trying something different.

OUR REFEREES

image_name2
view full size
SYSA is fortunate to have the services of these fine, youth referees. They have all attended NH Soccer Association referee training courses and earned their certification. Please be aware that you are a model for the behavior of the players and be sure to support our referees as they officiate our soccer games.

COACHES' CORNER

image_name2
YOUR KID PLAYS FOR FREE WHEN YOU COACH HIS/HER TEAM!
As an incentive for you to coach your child's team, SYSA will waive
the registration fee for that child.
This offer is for primary coaches only, not assistants, and applies to the fee for 1 child only.

As a coach, you will also get a tee shirt & a Coach's clipboard
with wipe-off board diagram of a soccer field on the back.

Plus, as a coach YOU get to set your own practice schedule
(does not apply to Scatterball, which has no outside practices). Most teams have 1, hour-long outside practice session, which can be a week-night evening, anytime on a Saturday, or on Sunday before the game.
And - in the Fall, you'll have your picture taken with your team as a lifetime reminder for you and your child of the season when you were "MY COACH!"

If this is your first time coaching, THAT'S OKAY!
SYSA provides lots of support in the form of:

-Coaching videos on loan
-Coach's Handbook
-Coaching booklets
-Coaching coordinator will attend & critique your practice or...
Run a practice for you while you help out
-Provide internet links to coaching resources

PLEASE TAKE ADVANTAGE
of our coaching coordinator's skills -
Call him to arrange for him to come to your practice...

CONGRATULATIONS to the SYSA girls' U-13 travel team for their hard-fought victory over the Granite FC Soccer Club to win the 2010 Granite State Soccer League Championship in Pembroke.
