Welcome to Sanborn Youth Soccer Association's Website!
We are a small (about 200 players) community organization dedicated to promoting the game, fun, and sportsmanship of playing soccer. 

 It is the mission of SYSA to deliver a quality youth soccer program which fosters the development of cooperation, respect, and fitness through the participation of children and families in a healthy, positive atmosphere.

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, Michael Gannon, SanbornSoccerAssoc@gmail.com

TRAVEL TEAM TRYOUTS, U-13, Sat JUN 17

SYSA will offer a U13 Co-ed Travel Team for the 2017-2018 season which begins in Sept.

Boys and girls born in 2005 or 2006 are eligible.

DATE: Saturday June 17

Time: 5:00 pm-6:30 pm Sanborn Middle School, Main St, Newton

The travel team is in the NH Soccer League, a competitive league that plays teams in the seacoast & southern NH region. Games are played on Saturdays and Sundays in the fall and spring. Travel is often more extensive in spring because there are fewer teams.

The registration fee is higher than recreational soccer (about $50-$60/season) and players will purchase their own uniforms (about $60-$70).  

For more information, please contact the coach, Michael Gannon, at 642-3365 or email SanbornSoccerAssoc@gmail.com

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 and expanded 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. 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 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. 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?

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, Michael Gannon, SanbornSoccerAssoc@gmail.com or call 642-3365

SYSA DOES NO FUNDRAISING-BUT NEEDS VOLUNTEERS

image_name2

NO CANDY BARS - NO WRAPPING PAPER - NO CANDLES - NO MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTIONS - NO SYSA KIDS NEED TO DO FUNDRAISING!!!

SYSA has been FUNDRAISER FREE for its 20 years in existence.

HOW CAN WE DO THIS?

1. CONCESSION STAND: Our concession stand provides refreshments for players and fans and is run by VOLUNTEERS. All proceeds are used to fund the operation of the league. PLEASE CONSIDER VOLUNTEERING FOR 1 HOUR ON ANY SUNDAY to sell refreshments. If one parent of each player volunteers for just 1 hour in the season, we can remain FUNDRAISER FREE. Contact Debbie Samoisette to choose the time you would like to help out. 642-5225

2. RECYCLED UNIFORMS: Uniform shirts are returned at the end of each season to save on the expense of purchasing new ones. Please check your kid's dresser for a shirt you may have forgotten to return & bring it to your coach.

3. FACILITIES: Sanborn Regional School District & the Town of Kingston has generously donated the use of fields and practice space. This is a huge savings to our league and we are able to pass along the savings to our players in keeping registration cost affordable for all. PLEASE BE CONSCIENTIOUS ABOUT MAINTAINING THE CLEANLINESS OF THE FIELDS in appreciation for the school district & town allowing us to use them.

4. VOLUNTEERS: SYSA board of directors, coordinators, coaches, & refreshment stand workers all generously donate their time to the league to make soccer affordable to all. If you would like to join our volunteer force, please contact president, Michael Gannon at megannon@comcast.net

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...
