The Cortland County Youth Soccer Association (CCYSA) is run entirely by volunteers who want to see soccer programs offered to the youth of our communities to build not only soccer skills, but character, team work, respect, and other traits that will serve them well in life.  

We are in need of volunteers like you!  Without volunteers by the end of 2019, we cannot continue to offer the same quality soccer programs that benefit so many families in Cortland County.

Many volunteers have soccer experience and play a great role in coaching, training and other on-field positions.  Other volunteers don't have the soccer experience, but use their organizational, planning, communication or other skills to work off-field in administrative and supportive roles.  

Please contact us today about how you can help!  Rich Wagner,

Training & Practices:

On Saturday, November 16 all teams will have 1-hour practice times on the turf.  
Coaches will distribute t-shirts and printed game schedules prior to the first game.  Please make sure your players have shinguards, long socks to cover the shinguards, a water bottle with his/her name on it, and sneakers or 'turf' shoes (those with small molded cleats.  Outdoor cleats are not allowed because they damage the turf.)  We recommend that 6U players wear a pair of light wind pants or sweat pants to protect their legs from scrapes when they fall on the small turf field.

On Saturday, November 23, all teams will play their first of seven games.


Please contact Referee Director Mark Dodds at if you are interested in officiating the indoor soccer league.  Officials must register here.

CCYSA Mission

The mission of the CCYSA is to promote, teach and facilitate recreational and competitive youth soccer in our community.  Through good sportsmanship, fair play, responsibility and respect, CCYSA will strive to offer soccer opportunities to all those that wish to participate.
