The Program and Commitment for incoming U9s:
This program is for players born in 2009 who wish to make a 10 month commitment to competitive soccer.  The program runs from September through the end of June, and places teams in the Westchester Youth Soccer League. Each 2008 team will practice with a professional trainers twice per week in the Fall and Spring with games on Sundays in Westchester and Rockland Counties and New York City. The CYSC commitment will be ONE practice with a professional trainer held during the week with a travel game on Sunday. AYSO will conduct ONE practice with a professional trainer on Saturdays followed by an AYSO game. In short, your child will be playing soccer 3 days per week. (One weekday plus Saturday and Sunday.)  Winter CYSC practices and game schedules will differ by team and are encouraged, but not required. 
PLAYING TIME: Each player who attends both practices and the Saturday and Sunday game on a regular basis will be entitled to at least 50% playing time in their Sunday game so there will be plenty of soccer for players of ALL levels!!!!

The CYSC will be conducting evaluations for the 2017-2018 CYSC Teams. The evaluations are open to all students attending Chappaqua Schools or living in the Town of New Castle. The evaluations will be monitored by CYSC approved trainers and CYSC board members. Please note: Missing the CYSC evaluation for a tryout at another club is not considered an excused absence and will be taken into consideration when forming teams.

FYI: As there will not be cuts at the incoming 2009 level, players can opt out of the evaluation and chose to be place directly on the balanced team. HOWEVER...CYSC strongly encourages all players to attend to the evaluations and not opt out as we believe it is beneficial to experience the evaluation process in a low pressure environment where everyone makes the program. 

All participants must wear a gray or white t-shirt, cleats and shin guards, and bring an age appropriate soccer ball and plenty of water. (boys will NOT need a ball at thier second tryout) Current and former CYSC players, as well as players from outside travel programs, are not permitted to wear any part of their  travel uniforms including their practice jersey to the tryouts. Players should plan to arrive at the field 15 minutes prior to the start of the tryouts to check in and receive a number and a pinny. Parents (and other caregivers) will not be permitted to remain at the field during the tryouts.
The number of teams formed at this age group will be based on the number of players enrolled. In order to participate, players must register online between April 2-April 3, 2016 by logging on to www.sportssignup.com/fcchappauqa.start At the end of the sign up you will need to confirm in two places in order to receive a confirmation. MAKE CERTAIN YOU RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION, then RE-LOG in and click edit on the right and UPLOAD a photo of your child during. Please use the edit function to upload the photo.

ALL players must bring a copy of their birth certificate and a WYSL medical release form to the evaluation .NO EXCEPTIONS. (the form does not need to be notarized)
