Registration fee: $110 and $55 Annual NYSA Family Membership Dues.
What age group is my child in?
Spring season division assignment is based on the child's age as of June 30th. A player must be UNDER the age of a division to play. For example, if a player turns 8 by the age cutoff, they will play U10 (UNDER 10).
What is included with my registration fee? Soccer jersey and shorts.
What forms of payment do you accept for the registration fee? Credit/Debit cards when registering online. However, you may select the option to "Pay by check" and pay at the NYSA office with Cash or Money Order, as the NYSA does not take personal checks.
May I get a refund?
Issuing refunds is at the discretion of the Commissioners. Registration refunds may only be granted for one week following the close of late registration. After the one-week grace period, no refunds will be given. The NYSA annual membership dues are never refundable. If you sign up online for a sport, then decide not to play (for any reason), then the annual dues will not be refunded.
What other expenses may I incur? You are responsible for providing your child’s soccer cleats, shin guards, and the correct size of soccer ball. If your child plays as goalie, you are responsible for providing the goalie gloves or any other gear you feel necessary.

When does the season start and end? Spring Soccer occurs between Spring Break and Memorial Day. Fall Soccer occurs between Labor Day and Veterans Day.
When are practices? Monday and Wednesdays or Tuesday and Thursdays. During registration, you have the option to indicate a preference. Every effort is made to accommodate all the preferences but with over 500 players, we cannot promise. Practice times are selected by coaches at our coach meetings prior to the season beginning.
If you have a very specific practice time preference it is highly encouraged that your family volunteer to coach so you can select your preferred day and time.
We also make every effort to ensure siblings all practice on coordinating night but again, we cannot promise.
What will my player need for practice? They will need a ball in the appropriate size for their age division (size 3 for U6 and U8, size 4 for U10 and U12, size 5 for U16 and above.) They must have soccer cleats (not baseball or football cleats), shin guards, and a full water bottle for all practices.
When are games? Games are on Saturday, mostly in the morning, but with some early afternoon games depending on the age division and how many teams we have. There is the possibility of a few weeknight games as well.
What will my player need for games? Your player MUST wear the assigned jersey, shorts, and socks to participate. No exceptions. Jewelry of any kind is not permitted. Medical equipment is accepted.
Where are the games played? All practices and games are played at the NYSA Soccer Complex located at 9299 Military Tr. Rd. Navarre.
How can I volunteer to coach? If you are logged into your account on nysasports.com, you should see a button on the left-hand side that says “volunteer”. Follow the instructions to view the volunteer roles for soccer and fill out the registration. There is also a mandatory background check form to fill out per Santa Rosa County requirements.
How are coaches assigned? Those parents who have volunteered to coach are assigned to their child's team, and any other community volunteers are assigned to teams without coaches. In some cases, particularly in the older age groups, we have more volunteers than we need and usually go with our long-standing volunteers.
It is a guarantee that every season we will have teams without coaches.
It is highly encouraged that even if you do not have soccer experience but are an enthusiastic leader of children that you volunteer to at least co-coach. Often there are other parents on the team who can bring the soccer knowledge but may not feel comfortable in a leadership position.
What happens if my child is assigned to a team with no coach? You will receive an email letting you know that your player’s team does not have a coach and asking for volunteers among the parents. If one or more parents do not step forward to collectively coach the team, our very last resort is to issue refunds to the team.
Do you have a Select/Travel Soccer program? YES! Navarre United is the select soccer program for NYSA. You can get further information by going to www.NavarreUnited.org.
