We are an all-volunteer, outdoor, independent recreational league, serving primarily the City of Syracuse (NY) East and its adjacent suburbs. We are committed to providing a non-competitive environment to youth in grades K through 8, to teach the skills and concepts of soccer.
We are supported by player fees, donations, and a lot of volunteer hours, and offer scholarships to children who cannot afford our fees.
Registrations after August 15 and for the spring session only are accepted on a space-available basis.
Players are placed on teams in appropriate divisions, according to the grade level of the player.
The Kindergarten and 7/8 divisions are co-ed. Other levels have separate boys and girls divisions but may be combined based on the number of players registered.
Our goal is to create teams that are as even as possible and factors such as age, school, and ability are considered in the placement process.
We welcome you to join us as a player, volunteer coach, or other volunteers.

Information from NYSWYSA
Effective immediately, state-mandated COVID restrictions are lifted across commercial and social settings. This includes social gathering limits, capacity restrictions, social distancing, health screening, cleaning & disinfecting protocols and contact information for tracing. The lifting of restrictions also applies to sports and recreation.
If you are not vaccinated and unable to maintain a social distance then a face covering is still recommended. If you are playing and not vaccinated, a face covering is recommended unless it can’t be tolerated.
This season has presented unprecedented challenges for the league administration due to COVID and the new weekly challenges continue. The Syracuse Parks and Recreation Department granted a permit for three-quarters of Barry Park for a community event on June 5th. We only have access to the two south fields by the parking lot. To run this week's set of games, we are moving all 1/2 games to Sherman Park, Field 2 will host all 5/6 matches, and all 3/4 games will run on Field 1.
Please see the linked document for the time and location of your team's game(s).
We explored all possibilities, but without the City of Syracuse fields, this was the only possible solution. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change and thank you in advance for your patience and flexibility.
Please contact Kevin Schalk, Director of Coaching, with any questions.
