How many games does each Fall team play?
Each team normally plays 8 games, but sometimes due to inclement weather, the number of games may be reduced.

Where and when are Fall practices?
Your child's coach will manage each practice session and will provide you the details on where and when your child's practices will be held.

What equipment do I need to provide for my child?
You will need to provide your child with shin guards (shin guards are mandatory). We also recommend that you provide your child with a soccer ball and rubber molded soccer cleats. During practice sessions your child's coach will run activities that require all children to have their own soccer ball. Rubber molded soccer cleats will provide your child with the proper footing so that your child does not slip on the grass. Only rubber molded soccer cleats will be allowed. Your child will not be able to play in games or practices with any other type of cleat.

What does TYSL provide for a soccer uniform?
TYSL supplies each player with a team jersey and matching soccer socks. Soccer shorts are NOT provided.

How can I help?
There are many things you can do to help such as being a team manager, help with telephone calls, assistant coach (each team will need one), be contact person for our fundraiser, be chaperon on the coaching sideline, etc.

How are teams formed?
TYSL currently forms Fall teams by having each team consist of approximately the same number of new players, returning players, and Spring travel players. At the younger ages, every effort is made to place children on teams within the same region of the city

Why isn't my child playing on a team with kids from my child's school?
Some schools represent more players than others. When there are an odd number of children from school we must find a spot on another team.

Why can't I request that my child be placed on a specific team?
We get so many requests for coaches & teammates yearly. We used to handle requests for those who would need help relative to transportation purposes. As the league continues to grow so do the requests, and at this point we can no longer manage all requests and still meet our deadline for forming teams.
