SYSO Coaching Staff:


First, thank you for donating your valuable time to coach or assitant coach the children of our community.  The goal of SYSO is to teach the game of soccer and allow the players to have fun while learning.  We therefore do not post scores in order to keep this a non-competitive environment.  Please focus on teaching and having fun over winning.

Should any incidents arise during the season, please contact the appropriate boardmember listed under the 'Boardmembers' tab above.

Also, we ask that you not take any new players until your coordinator has officially added them to your team after they have been properly registered. 
We are looking forward to another successful season.
The SYSO Board of Directors
