Coaches Corner 


Each year, all SYSA coaches have to register 

All coaches must agree to a background check. 

Go to the SYSA coaches registration page. Login to your SportsEngine account (or create a new one) and complete the 2024/2025 SYSA Coaches Registration. 

Once you have submitted your coaches application, download the SportsEngine app on your phone to access your team roster, schedule, etc. 


The league does not schedule practices.
The fields for practice are at a first come first serve basis. If the fields are crowded we ask that you only use half the field and let another team use the other half.  

The league provides participation trophies and medals for K-5th division. No participation trophies for 6th, 7th, 8th.   

We use a ticket system at the Concession Stand for after game treats. The ticket is good for one soda/water and one candy/chips of choice. Each players registration fee covers after game snacks. Have someone pick up your tickets for your team before your game end once you know how many players from your team came that night. Of course, you can always do something on your own.

The league does not provide any equipment cones, pinnies, goal keeper jersey or gloves etc.  If you do get cones, get them online from Amazon etc. Area stores want an outrageous amount for a handful of cones.
