U6-U11 (4v4 & 7v7 Leagues):
Our main objective with our CNYFSC Youth Soccer program is Player Development. Competitive games and training sessions are what each players needs to become a talented soccer player. Winning should be important but not the only goal. After each game the coaches and players should evaluate what they have accomplished in the previous game as well as what needs to be focused on for the next game. Each game will be used as a tactical training tool just as much as the Monday "Skills Training" is used as a technical training tool. In the CNYFSC Youth Soccer "Skills Training" sessions you will NOT train as a team. The training sessions will be focused on individual skills.
U12-U16 11v11 Leagues:
Our main focus of the 11v11 League is preparing players for their upcoming Modified, JV or Varsity seasons. Competitive games & training sessions are essential for player development. Winning should be important but of course not the only goal. In Central NY each player is limited to a minimal amount of full field 11v11 experience. Playing in our program will allow each player 10 more games of experience they would otherwise not have.
All CNYFSC Youth Soccer teams will be formed with a first come first serve basis. As players register they will be placed on teams until the roster is full. If you would like to be placed with a certain individual, there is a spot on the registration form to indicate who you would like to be on a team with.
Individual players interested in joining a team can register for any of our CNYFSC Youth Soccer teams. Each one of the teams will be placed in their gender specific division. However, if there are not enough COED teams will be formed.
U6-U8 will play 5v5 (4 and a Keeper)
U8-U11 will play 7v7 (6 and a Keeper)
U12-U16 will play 11v11 (10 and a Keeper)
