The Chappaqua Youth Soccer Club is organized for players born in 2011 and older who wish to make a 10 month commitment to competitive soccer. This program runs from September through the end of June, and places teams in the Westchester Youth Soccer League. Each 2010 and older team will practice for 3 hours per week - two 1.5 hour sessions. 2011s will practice 1.5 hours per week. All teams regardless of age will practice with a professional trainer in the Fall and Spring. All teams regardless of age will play games on Sundays in Westchester and Rockland Counties and New York City. Winter practices and game schedules differ by team and are STRONGLY encouraged, but not required. The annual cost varies by team/age from $750-$1600 per year, plus CYSC fees of $250, and the cost of the uniform. Financial aid is available to those who meet the requirements.
Additionally, while it is not required, over 85% of CYSC players participate in the CYSC Pre-Season Camp 8/26-8/30. Discounts will be offered to players who enroll at the same time they accept their invitation to play.

Playing time rules for players that regularly attend practices and games and participate in a constructive manner
2009 - 2010 (U9 and U10): Minimum playing time is on average, 40% of each game
2008 (U11): Minimum playing time is on average, 25% of each game.
2005-2007 (U12-U14): Minimum playing time is, on average, 25% of each game unless the team is D2 or higher in which case there will be no playing time minimum.

This includes other sports or other activities. PLAYERS WILL ONLY BE PERMITTED TO TRYOUT BY BIRTH YEAR. (As per the USSF, US Club, and the WYSL rules)
