Seekonk Youth Soccer
Board Meeting Update
SYS's March meeting will be open to the public and held on Monday, March 6, 2017.
Welcome to Seekonk Youth Soccer!
Seeking Youth Soccer (SYS) is a non-profit community based youth soccer organization. Our mission is to help develop our community’s youth through an enjoyable experience centered around the game of soccer. We belive that soccer can be used to assist in character development through good sportsmanship and teamwork and promoting healthy lifestyles through physical fitness and organized activities.
As a 100% volunteer based organization, we are truly a community driven organization. Working with children ages 5 and up, we have a number of opportunities for recreational enjoyment and competitive play at most levels.
We encourage you to utilize our website often, follow us on Facebook and volunteer as opportunities exist.
For time sensitive issues, questions, comments or concerns - please contact us via email at email@example.com.
Recent Updates (September, 2016)
Challenger Program for U6 and U8 boys and girls begins this at the fields. As previously mentioned, there will be a double session on Fridays with two trainers running simultaneous sessions. Times are as follows...
- U6 & U8
- U6 & U8
U6 players will practice on the softball field. U8 players will practice on available space on either Field 4A or 4B. We would encourage players to participate and practice as teams, but if you're child's team does not practice on Fridays you are welcome to partake of either session in addition to your normal practice. Children should be dressed to play with shin guards, cleats or sneakers, a ball, and a water or sports drink. Children should bring their ball to each and every practice. SYS uniforms are not required for practice and should be reserved for game day.
If you are unsure which time slot you should attend, please consult with your coach.
