PLEASE PRINT AND READ CAREFULLY - TONS OF INFORMATION!!!!!
 

The Program and Commitment:

Players born in 2008 MUST also read the 2009 travel program on the left hand side. 2009 evaluation dates are listed below.


The Chappaqua Youth Soccer Club is organized for players born in 2009 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 2008 and older team will practice for 3 hours per week  - two 1.5 hour sessions.  2009s will only 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-$1400 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 80% of CYSC players participate in the CYSC Pre-Season Camp 8/28-9/1. Discounts will be offered to players who enroll at the same time they accept their invitation to play. 

Playing time: - effective July 2017.

Playing time  rules for players that regularly attend practices and games and participate in a constructive manner
2008 - 2009 (U9 and U10): Minimum playing time is  on average, 50% of each game.

2007 (U11): Minimum playing time is on average, 33% of each game.
2004-2006 (U12-U14): Minimum playing time is, on average, 25% of each game.
For all age groups this means that some players will play close to 100% of the game and others will play the minimum amount.


Tryouts:
The CYSC will be holding tryouts for their 2017-2018 Travel Teams for interested players born before 2008. (Evaluations will be held for 2009 players. See 2009 travel description.) The tryout schedule is listed below and attendance at all tryouts/evaluations for your age group is required. Tryouts are open to all students attending Chappaqua Schools or living in the Town of New Castle. The tryouts will be monitored by Club-approved trainers and CYSC board members.  Please note: Missing a CYSC tryout for a tryout at another club, or participation in a practice, game or tournament with another club is not considered an excused absence and will be taken into consideration when forming teams. 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)


All participants must wear a gray or white t-shirt, cleats and shin guards, and bring plenty of water. Current and former CYSC players, as well as current and former players from outside clubs 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 20 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. Players with tryouts at Amsterdam Field on Saturday May 13th WILL BE DROPPED OFF AT THE FIELD. PLAYERS WILL SIGN THEMSELVES IN at Amsterdam #1. If your child is mature enough to play travel soccer...then he/she is mature enough to check them self in.
 
The number of teams selected for each age group will depend on the number of players trying out and the caliber of play. The number of teams will also be dependent on the number of players accepting their invitation to play. Players are required to attend practices twice per week and play in Sunday games during the Fall and the Spring seasons which are typically ten weeks each. 

U9/U10 = 7v7 (possiby 8v8 for U10 waiting to hear from the WYSL)

U11/U12 = 9v9

U13/U14 = 11v11

Actual playing time as a goalie will be determined by individual coaches/teams.  Goalie tryouts will be held during one of the regular age group tryouts.
