2021-2022 CYSA Fall Rec Season - PLAYERS
Thank you and Welcome!
If you are NEW to the CYSA GotSport Platform please register a NEW Profile. If you played last year DO NOT CREATE A NEW PROFILE!!
Cumberland Youth Soccer Association (CYSA) Fall Recreational Soccer offers a place for novice and experienced players. All players ages 4 through 18 as of this year who register will be placed on a team based on age. Teams generally consist of a mix of novice and experienced players. Experienced/competitive players are distributed to ensure an even playing field in the Recreational Season. Teams are assembled with a goal of even player distribution so there is not one “strong” team in any age group. Our philosophy for our Recreational Season is to create a fun and educational season for all players with an emphasis on “fun”.
Our Fall Season starts in late August and runs through late October. Games are all on Saturdays. Practices are generally once a week in the early evening during the week. Games, practice schedules and locations are not published until mid-August. CYSA graciously accepts the hospitality of the Town of Cumberland and the Parks and Rec. Department to use its fields for our games. CYSA applies for field permits at the appropriate time and generally receives field permits in mid-August. We then develop field and game time schedules and publish them on our website.
Players must provide shin guards and outdoor cleats. Player fees also help pay for equipment, referee fees and first aid kits/PPE items.
It does take many weeks to organize the season once registration has ended. With nearly 900 kids participating and the need for almost 150 coaches, we cannot stress enough to our parents that if you have the time and would like to participate as a Coach or Assistant to please register as one. NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED!!
Again, our goal for Fall Recreational is “FUN”, so thank you for being a part of what is sure to be a great season!
