IMPORTANT INFO FOR KINGSTON & NEWTON VOTERS- SYSA FIELD USE
soccer field

IMPORTANT INFORMATION for voters of Kingston and Newton:

SYSA’s use of Chase Field and Swasey gym may be terminated if voters do not approve a warrant on the school district ballot on March 14. The facilities need to be renovated to make them handicapped accessible. It is Article #9 (ADA Improvements, Swasey Gym & Chase Field House) on the school district warrant.

SYSA has been very fortunate that, for the past 20 years, the Sanborn School District has allowed us to use their facilities at Chase Field and Swasey Gym to bring our soccer program to the youth of our communities. Without these facilities, there will be a greater demand on remaining school and town field space from other organizations and from the school teams that currently use them. This will leave little, if any, time and space available for SYSA to provide its soccer programs to the approximately 200 children who play in our league. This also impacts youth baseball, basketball and football which also provide programs to hundreds of children in our communities.

Voting is at the polls is March 14 at Newton Town Hall & Swasey Gym in Kingston. Please consider the impact this may have on youth sports in the Sanborn community if it does not pass.

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
volunteer

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
