ONE TIME (skip if you already have a SportsEngine account): You will need to setup a SportsEngine Account. Note - If you coach multiple Harrisburg Park District programs (soccer, baseball, softball, flag football), you will use the same account for all sports. However, you still have to follow registration process for every sport you coach. 

EACH Soccer Year (Fall/Spring): ALL Coaches must register (no cost) through SportsEngine. 

avigate to the Coaches/Volunteer Registration site. 

Enter your email address. If you do not already have a SportsEngine account, you will need to first setup your SportsEngine account. 

After the you go through account setup process, you will get a verification email to activate your account. If you do not receive the email, check your junk/spam folder. Click Activate My Account. 

After your SportsEngine account is setup, login to the website and select 2023/2024 SYSA Spring Coach/Volunteer Soccer Registration and complete the online registration form process.  

Finally, o
nce you have setup your SportsEngine Account and registered, you can visit the App Store for your type of device and download the SportsEngine app for additional team scheduling, communications, and other features. 


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.
