Elburn—The Kaneland Youth Soccer Organization (KYSO) is taking registrations for spring recreational soccer through Wednesday, Jan 30, at www.kanelandyouthsoccer.com.
The spring season includes six games running from April 13 until May 18. All games and practices are held at the KYSO fields, next to Kaneland High School in Maple Park.
Registration is open to boys and girls ages 4-17. Registration fees are $85 for the first child, $65 for each additional child, and include a soccer jersey, shorts, socks, end-of-season trophies and certified referees. A refundable $20 volunteer fee is added to the first child’s registration to help offset league costs. Refunds are available by coaching, participating on the KYSO Board, or helping with various roles during the season. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
KYSO also provides a TOPSoccer program for players with special needs. TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a national soccer program created to train young people with disabilities in a caring coaching environment. The program is generally carried out by volunteers at the local level, with financial support from US Youth Soccer and local youth soccer organization such as KYSO.
KYSO provides Big Rock, Elburn, Hinckley, Kaneville, Maple Park, Sugar Grove and Virgil youth with recreational soccer opportunities. KYSO has approximately 50 recreational soccer teams for boys and girls ages 4-14 (U5-U14). KYSO recreational program teaches soccer through the use of smaller teams and fields, maximizing participation by all. The program also allows young players to learn and enjoy soccer in a positive and fun environment, usually in their own community with the same children with whom they go to school.
For the player who is primarily interested in fun, fitness and friendship, KYSO provides a healthy activity through its recreational and small-sided games program. This program emphasizes fun and de-emphasizes winning at all costs. Every child is guaranteed playing time, and the game is taught in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere.
