IMPORTANT UNIFORM ORDERING INFORMATION

Uniform purchase is required for our In-Town program (Pre-K, Kindergarten and Grades 1 & 2).  Your uniform must be ordered during registration to ensure timely delivery prior to the start of the season.  If you are registering for Pre-Kindergarten for the first time or are new to the In-Town program, you must purchase your uniform at the time of registration. 

Beginning this fall, all travel uniforms must be purchased through our partners at WeGotSoccer.  A separate email with the web address, ordering information, and a link to all assigned uniform numbers will be sent to families in June.  The option of ordering travel uniforms will no longer be available in the SYS registration platform.

If you need to order travel replacement items, you will also be able to do so through the WeGotSoccer platform.

Uniforms are not required for those players participating in the Tykes program.

 

Registration for Goalkeeper Clinics will open for Grades 1-8 closer to the season's start date.

Programs

SYS offers three In-Town programs based on age:

Tykes (formerly Toddler)
The Tykes program consists of a weekly hour-long session, with parents frequently taking part alongside their children. The goal is getting youngsters familiar with the game while keeping them engaged and entertained. For more information, and frequently asked questions, see the Tykes program page. This is a Co-Ed program.

Grade Pre-K & Grade Kindergarten (U5/U6)
We introduce Saturday games at Triangle Field -- with no score being kept -- in addition to a weekly practice for co-ed teams split by kindergarten start date. Games are small-sided (4v4, with smaller goals and no goalkeepers) and there is a continued emphasis on getting kids as many touches as possible.  This is a Co-Ed program.

Grade 1 & Grade 2 (U7/U8)
Teams are split into Girls and Co-Ed, with both split by grade level. Each team practices once a week and plays one unscored game each Saturday, with the introduction of the concepts of passing and teamwork. Games remain small-sided, with slightly larger goals and  the introduction of goalkeepers.

Our Travel program continues player development with competitive, scored games against other Middlesex Youth Soccer League (MYSL) towns. Players are placed on teams based on skill level, as determined by coach feedback, field evaluations, and feedback collected by our Academy Instructors. Teams in Grades 5-13 in Divisions 1 and 2 are eligible to participate in the state-wide Massachusetts Tournament of Champions playoffs, based on their regular season record.

Teams practice twice a week on weeknights and play games generally on Saturdays, typically with half of the games played in Somerville and half played in nearby towns.

Somerville offers Girls and Co-Ed travel teams. In accordance with MYSL Rule 15.c, all Co-Ed teams play in the "boys" division.
