Why Bruce Samlan and HYSA soccer is so great for kids...

HYSA is very honored to present the game of soccer in a recreational format through the Bruce Samlan Soccer League and in a competitive format through the Lions '82 Soccer Club.  Our entire focus in both formats is teaching the game to your child(ren), improving your child's skills, and letting them make tactical game decisions with their if often stated in soccer circles, "The best teacher is the game".   All of our formats are small-sided soccer (see more info here and below this text box) and provide the best opportunity for your player(s) to touch the ball, learn, make mistakes, and grow.  We want to thank you for a great spring season and look forward to  your player(s) returning to us soon.

Fall registration is still open and we respectfully ask that you register early (this helps our volunteers avoid last minute heroics to support your player(s) and avoid expedited fees regarding jerseys, player awards, and division/coach/referee assignments.
