Spring 2019 registration is OPEN

By Jake Wilson 10/31/2018, 9:30pm EDT

Save big with Earlybird registration rates through Nov. 30

Registration for the Spring 2019 season is now open. I know it feels early to be thinking about the spring, but it's extremely important for us that you register as soon as possible.

Officially, we have raised our fees for the spring. But what we're really doing is imposing our "late fee" dates earlier to give you incentive to register now for the Spring season. So while the rates for Toddler, In-Town, and Travel have all gone up (to $70, $90, and $120, respectively), our early bird discount will let you pay the old rates, if you register by November 30 using the following discount codes:

EARLYTODDLER ($13 off Toddler)
EARLYINTOWN ($19 off In-Town)
EARLYTRAVEL ($27 off Travel)

In addition to you saving money by getting to pay the old registration rates, registering early allows us to fill out our rosters earlier. This means that we can figure out practice schedules earlier and communicate these to you earlier. Our board has embraced a goal of releasing our practice schedule at least a month before the start of each season, so we can get this information to you and get on your family's calendar as soon as possible.

I understand it can be difficult with kids to make a commitment six months out like this. But if you think your child would like to play soccer in the spring, please register them now. Our new registration system makes processing refunds a snap, so if it turns out that soccer isn't going to work for your child, we will issue you a full refund.


And as always, SYSL prides itself on offering aggressive sliding-scale fees for families for whom the cost is a burden. For the first time ever, we are proud to offer an all-in-one online registration option for families requiring financial assistance with fees. Click here for our Spring 2019 season sliding-scale fee registration.

If you need a uniform or a component of a uniform for the spring, please hold off on ordering that until we give the go-ahead to do so. We expect this to happen by mid-November and you'll be notified via email.

Thank you for playing soccer with us, and for helping our league do our preseason planning, coordinating, and scheduling earlier by registering right away for the spring. Everyone wins when you register early!
