Kaneland Youth Soccer spring registration
Elburn—The Kaneland Youth Soccer Organization (KYSO) is taking registrations for Fall Recreational Soccer through June 30 at www.kanelandyouthsoccer.com.
The fall season includes eight games, running from Aug. 24 to Oct. 26. 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 to 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.
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 features small-sided games, balanced teams and college level trainers to support player development and provide coach support.
Volunteer coaching positions are also available, and a coach training session will be held in early August. Please email email@example.com for details.
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 (three quarters minimum), and the game is taught in a fun and enjoyable atmosphere.
