The BYSC In-house program is a for-fun, community developmental program focused on skills, sportsmanship, team play and a knowledge of the game. As it is often the first organized sport a child plays, we are intent on making it a fun experience for children and their families. It is also intended to develop travel soccer aptitude for those children who have the desire to transition to travel, which is more serious and more competitive. 

The Pre-K and Kindergarten Age Groups have parent coached teams assisted by paid Professional Trainers.  The Older Age Groups are trained by Professional Trainers - parents are welcome to offer assistance.  The Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd Grade Players are eligible for one of two Programs - Saturday ONLY or Saturday + Midweek (Wed) Clinic.

By second grade, more dedicated players may choose our pre-travel program. To learn more about it, please click the pre-travel link at left. 

To learn more details about how the in-house program is structured and run, please click on the handout link at the bottom of this page.

We are constantly tweaking our programs based on parent feedback and enrollment numbers, so please bear with us if anything changes.

At each game the referee rates the sporting behavior of each team’s coaches, players and parents   (-2 to +2 for each) and submits a score as part of their game report.  Each team’s total score (-6 to +6) is totaled and averaged for the season to determine a winner and runner-up. These can be tracked on the WYSL team page.
These teams (players, coaches and parents) displayed the respect for the referee/opposition and positive coaching reinforcement that exemplifies positive sporting behavior.
Special congratulations to the

This Friday's (Nov. 13) Pre-travel under the lights events has been moved to the following Friday, November 20th from 5 PM until 7 PM. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.  The change is due to a scheduling conflict with another youth program.  As a courtesy to the town, BYSC agreed to move the under the lights event to the 20th.  We thank you for your understanding. If you are still able to make the event, there is no need to reply to this email.  However, if this change effects your child's ability to participate in the program (either previously coming and now not, or previously not coming and now will), please do let us know. Thank you again- we look forward to seeing you all there! Best,  Chris Parrott BYSC In-House Coordinator
