The goals of the Intramural soccer program are to develop soccer skills, to develop teamwork skills and to have fun. Players are placed into groups according to age school year.  Players must play with their school grade.

Grades 1 & 2 — These are typically 6-8 year old players, and teams are co-ed. Teams practice once each week for an hour, and games are on Saturdays. Game times vary. (Academy Program - training by professional coaches).  This program is not a drop off program, someone who is responsible for the player must be present at the practices and games.

Grades 3 & 4 — These are typically 8-10 year old players, and teams are co-ed. Teams practice once each week for 90 minutes, and games are on Saturdays. Game times vary.  (Academy Program - training by professional coaches)

Fall Soccer — Games start the first Saturday after Labor Day, and run for 8 weeks.

Spring Soccer — Games are scheduled to start first Saturday of April (weather dependent), and run for 8 weeks.

Fields — The Intramural teams play on any of the following fields: Harrington, South Row, Murphy (located on Mill Rd.) or Highland (located on Highland St.). Prior to each season, CYSA’s field manager determines which age group will play at which location.

Team and/or Coach Requests — No Team, Coach, or practice night Requests. Carpool issues can be addressed by volunteering to coach with other parents you carpool with.

Coaches — CYSA relies on volunteers to coach teams. The intramural program is the largest program within CYSA. Approximately 800 children play in the fall season and approximately 600 children play in the spring season. Therefore, the need for coaches is substantial. Training is provided for coaches prior to and during each season. CYSA welcomes new and experienced coaches into the Intramural Program.

Equipment — CYSA provides a shirt for each child participating in the Intramural Program. Parents are expected to provide shorts, adequate footwear (sneakers or soccer cleats) and shin guards.
