The Hononegah Youth Soccer Association (HYSA) is a 501(c)3 non for profit organization. HYSA is the parent organization for the competitive Lions '82 S.C. and the recreational Bruce Samlan Soccer League. The Board of Directors organizes both entities, but it is operated entirely by volunteers--parents like you!
Established in 1981, the Bruce Samlan Soccer League (BSSL) has been and continues to be the premier recreational developmental soccer League in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.
BSSL's soccer program is designed by a licensed Director of Coaching who is working to add many more licensed coaches.
BSSL stresses sportsmanship and enjoyment of soccer for all players and spectators. Focus is on the introduction of soccer for beginning players and continuing development of soccer techniques for experienced players. Divisions for boys and girls, ages 4-17 years old, are based on the Illinois Youth Soccer Association's guidelines.
BSSL is pleased to offer fundamental clinics (most at no extra charge) in conjunction with the Chicago Fire! Also available - SUMMER CAMP! Click here for more information.
Established in 1982, The Lions '82 Soccer Club fields teams from U8 through U18; with several teams ranked at high levels in their divisions. It is a competitive program, with Professionally Licensed Coaches, that helps young athletes develop their soccer skills to a high level while at the same time recognizing the importance of players developing into well-rounded individuals within their community. The Lions program has reasonable annual fees to allow more players the opportunity to participate in this great sport.
