WE ARE AN ALL VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION

ATTENTION SYSL Community,

Hopefully you know, Somerville Youth Soccer League is completely independent from the City of Somerville. WE ARE AN ALL VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION.

Each year SYSL holds its Annual Meeting. You will be receiving an invitation to attend it soon.
All members of SYSL are invited to attend and vote for the next years Board of Directors,

and you are a member of SYSL.

This year, as usual, there are some positions opening up on the Board of Directors, and they need to be filled by members within our community. Possibly by YOU! Nobody wants to take on more responsibility than they already have, but our league cannot function without a strong team organizing it. Because there has recently been a committed group on the Board, the individual jobs have all been very manageable, and nobody has been overwhelmed. The “smooth sailing” only continues with new community members coming forward to volunteer their time. The basic expectation of any Board Member is availability for a 7:30 pm meeting on the 1st Wednesday of every month. After that, the individual job descriptions vary, but they do not take up very much time… as long as there is a full slate of volunteers.

Please express your interest, and come to our next regularly scheduled meeting on May 4th at 7:30 sharp. We meet at the East End Grille, in East Somerville. You will be able to get a feel for a meeting and ask questions at that time.

We look forward to meeting you.

SYSL Board of Directors

How to order a Uniform After Registration

1) Normally, uniforms are ordered during the registration period. You can order, and pay for, a new uniform from this website.

2) NOTE: Players must order a full new uniform when they graduate from the IN-TOWN PROGRAM to the TRAVEL PROGRAM.
(the travel uniform has a number and is completely different than the In-Town uniform)

3) The Uniform Size chart can be found at:
Uniform Sizing Chart

4) The Uniform Order Form can be found at:
SYSL Uniform Order
