Homeschool Youth Soccer League (HYSL) 2016

HYSL_logo_edit_bumper

REGISTRATION NOW CLOSED! SEE YOU ON THE FIELDS!

Welcome to the Homeschool Youth Soccer League (HYSL)! Registration for the Spring 2016 season is now open!

HYSLIt’s time to play some SOCCER!!!

HYSL began in the spring three years ago. Homeschoolers get together on Saturday mornings to play some soccer. All levels, all experience (no experience necessary)…. everyone welcome! Parents who are able, volunteer to coach the teams. The teams are in large age groups. There are the 3-7 year olds. 7-10 year olds, and 10+ year olds. Kids move and up and down based on what the child and parent wants and feels is appropriate for the child’s skill level and comfortability with the game! This is an open and flexible league where by the main goal has been and remains; “Everyone walks away learning something.” (And that goes for the coaches too!) If children know soccer pretty well but are not ‘of age’… that’s A-Okay. They may move up! If they are older but don’t know soccer that well and would like to move down… that’s their prerogative!

The season runs 6 weeks. Five weeks meet in your respective regions/teams/locations. The final week is a tournament/family fun day at Legion Park in Chicago. Here, each of our regions gather together in one location to play against each other. Once the kids play their tournament games, the parents are invited to the field to play some kids vs. adults games. It’s a super fun day!

This Spring 2016 season will run April 16th through May 21st. Registration is open NOW, and will close March 31st. Absolutely *no* registrations beyond March 31st.

Mandatory equipment (which is responsibility of family): cleats, shin guards and soccer ball (size 4 for the youngest group (3-7 yrs), and size 5 for the older two groups). All should be worn and brought to each and every practice, as well as the tournament/family fun day.

Optional purchase: Team Jerseys. Jerseys are fun and a great way to build team spirit. The league as a logo that was designed by a homeschooler three years ago, in our first year of HYSL. The logo is on the front of the shirt with the number on the back. Children love to wear their jerseys to every practice, as well as the tournament day. ** If your family would not like to purchase shirts, your child must simply wear the same team color on the day of the tournament.

Shirts may be purchased here (no later than March 31st): http://www.nakitababy.com/product/hysl-team-jersey/

If you have further details about the league, please email Amy directly at mommy@nakitababy.com.

REGISTRATION:
There are currently two regions of HYSL. Chicago North (BLUE) who meet from 10:15am – 11:30am and Chicago South (YELLOW) who meet 9:30am – 10:45am in their respective regions, both on Saturdays. (Exact locations are listed in the registration form below.)

** If these locations do not work for you *and* you are able and willing to open a new region, you may contact me about the details in doing such: mommy@nakitababy.com. It is not all that complicated and I would more than welcome a new region opening up for this coming season.

If you would like to help by volunteering to coach, you will receive a 100% post registration refund of your fee.

Thanks again! Do let me know if you have further questions!
And here is the registration form (SPACE IS LIMITED BASED ON THE NUMBER OF VOLUNTEER COACHES WE HAVE) :
