The Homeschool Youth Soccer League (HYSL) is designed to be a fabulous, convenient, affordable league for all homeschooling families interested in playing soccer. Practices for all ages (3yrs to teenagers) and are held on the same day, time and location so that parents don’t have sports on every day of the week, nor need to be in several places at the same time. Tournaments are a place where teams from regions all over the Chicagoland area (including far suburbs) come together and get to play against each other (see for more details: http://www.nakitababy.com/soccer-galore/). This league is run purely on a volunteer basis, and is always in need of more help, so please consider helping out to help HYSL expand.
Registration is now open for our fall season!
Season will run 9 weeks from Sept. 8th through Nov. 3rd with a tournament every 3rd week.
Tournament dates: Sept. 22nd, Oct. 13th and Nov. 3rd.
Practices could change slightly (per region) depending on the coaching staff that volunteer for this season. If all of the same coaches return, it will likely be the same date/time as this season’s practices. (New regions are yet to be determined.)
(ALL: for new and returning) Coaches training will be Saturday, August 25th from 10:30am-12:30pm at LaBagh Woods (Foster and Cicero, Chicago). I gather with all coaches to run through a training that will help you to understand how to facilitate soccer practices in your region. Questions and concerns are addressed, and skills taught in order for parents to feel comfortable volunteering their time to coach.
Early Registration (for current HYSL members only) was May 13th through June 16th. The family membership fee is $25 for returning families during this time frame.
Open Registration (open to HYSL members and non-members) is June 17th through July 31st. The family membership (family and *not* per child) fee is $35.
Late Registration (open to HYSL members and non-members) is August 1st through August 25th. The family membership (family and *not* per child) fee is $45.
**** Absolutely NO registration forms will be accepted after August 25th. No acceptions.
Family membership fees: These are non-refundable donations to the growth of the Homeschool Youth Soccer League. All fees are used to improve and grow HYSL with equipment for our kids to play. Please feel certain that your family is able to participate in the league before registering for the season, and be ‘ok’ with the fact that you have donated to HYSL if you need to leave the league for any reason.
To learn more about the regions that are already set up and currently running in the fall, you will need to join the yahoo group:
http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/HYSL_Midwest/. In the “files” section of the yahoo group you will find a fall registration form. Click on that file and find out where the regions are close to where you live. *** All further directions to register are listed on this form.
*** If you find that there aren’t any near to you AND you would be willing to coach a regional team, please contact me. We can add a region based on interest levels!!! There is also, in the files-section of the yahoo group, a form called “Volunteer Agreement Form.” Please fill that out and send that to me and we can get a new region/team started where you are located.
If you have more questions, after reviewing all of the materials in the yahoo group, please email me directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much!
