Welcome to the Charlestown Youth Soccer Association
Charlestown Youth Soccer Association (CYSA) was formed in March 2007 in order to bring soccer to the youth of Charlestown. CYSA provides over 300 registered boys and girls between the ages of 2 and 14 an opportunity to play organized soccer. Our mission is to introduce to the youth of Charlestown, Mass., the game of soccer through the development of individual skill, fitness, teamwork and fair play.
Placements - tentatively set for May 16 and 17
Placements to select teams for our Fall 2014/ Spring 2015 season are tentatively set for Friday May 17 (girls) and Saturday evening May 18 (boys). These dates have been selected to avoid conflicts with baseball, LAX, school dances and school fundraisers. Some basic information on the placements is below. Details to follow.
How does Charlestown Soccer select players for travel teams ?
Charlestown Soccer forms teams with comparably skilled players so that each team can develop as a group and compete against teams of similar ability. Any player that elects to play Charlestown Soccer will be placed on a team that is appropriate to their skill level. All players are placed on teams through a combination of placements, coach evaluations and team formation meetings.
What are placements ?
Placements are a player field evaluation by at least two independent experienced individuals. This year Charlestown Soccer has contracted with Challenger Sports to conduct the placements. Each participant will be given a number and rotated through a series of stations. Examples of criteria that will be used to evaluate players include:
Opening day finally arrives tomorrow (4/12) with home openers at 1PM from our GU10-1 and GU12-2 teams. The rest of our teams will be playing in Malden, Medford, Reading, Woburn and Stoneham. Please bring down any used cleats or uniforms and leave at our bin. We would also appreciate any donations of new shin guards. We will see you at the fields and good luck to everyone for a great season.
