Summer Competitive Youth Soccer Program
In previous years, the Scholastic League has been an extension of the youth, recreational league based on individual signups. This year we are continuing the transition to a more competitive league that is coach-led. Coaches are being given greater responsibility to form teams, recruit and maintain contact with players, provide uniforms and equipment, determine practice times and locations, and lead a team of players that will develop over this and future seasons.
U15 League - Girls (birthday between 9/1/2001 to 8/31/2004)
U18 League - Girls (birthday between 9/1/1998 to 8/31/2001)
U15 League - Boys (birthday between 9/1/2001 to 8/31/2004)
U18 League - Boys (birthday between 9/1/1998 to 8/31/2001)
Since this will be a coach-led team, ask around your school to see if any teams are forming and talk directly with the coaches. If you cannot find a team, please visit us at www.CCYSAsoccer.org and fill out the “Scholastic Interest Form”. We will collect your information and the Scholastic Director will talk with coaches to help you find a team.
1. Recruit & maintain contact with players
2. Submit the official roster (only rostered players may play)
3. Submit team and referee fees
4. Provide uniforms
5. Provide equipment
6. Determine practice times and locations
7. Responsible for their player and spectator behavior
Coaches must complete their team roster and submit it via email to the Scholastic Director. Players will be checked with the roster at the beginning of each game by the referee. Only players on the official roster will be able to play.
Roster Form (Submit the Excel File)
Practices will typically start in June with the days, times and locations established by the coach. The game schedule will be developed based on the number of teams entered into each league division. In the event that there are not enough teams to form a division, the Scholastic Director will work with the coaches to make adjustments. Each team will have 8 scheduled games for the season. Games are played 11v11 (including the goalie) on a Varsity-sized field measuring approximately 70' x 100' with 8’x24’ goals.
Coaches must submit the team fee of $200 by the registration deadline. The team fee is payable to CCYSA to cover the cost of NYS West player registration, insurance and field preparation expenses.
In addition coaches will pay a referee fee of $35/team per game directly to the referee at the beginning of the game. At game time, failure to field enough players or pay the referee fee will result in an immediate forfeit and a $70 fine payable to the Scholastic Director prior to the next scheduled game.
The combined team fee is $480, which equates to approximately $30/player based on the recommended 16-player roster. This excludes any uniform or equipment expenses determined by the coach.

Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Can a younger player play at a higher division? - Younger players are eligible to play at a higher age group (e.g. 14 year old playing on a U18 team) as long as the player is mature enough to compete at that level safely
2. Can a player play on 2 different teams? - Players may be rostered and play on a maximum of 2 teams.
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! 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, info@CCYSAsoccer.org.
