Registration for the FALL 2017 Season is Now OPEN.
SYSL pays our parent organization (Mass Youth Soccer) for insurance and administrative functions. These fees have increased starting Fall 2017 from $11 per player to $14 per player and from $16 per adult to $19 per adult. In an attempt to keep up with the fee increases we have increased registration costs $4 across all leagues. To make the total cost more clear during registration we have rolled the $4 increase into the existing $8 field and lighting fee and added both to the registration fee.
Financial Aid is available for those who qualify.
If you are a returning COACH or would like to Volunteer to be a coach please indicate when registering
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.
