TYSA'S Recreation Program
The emphasis is on fun and participation, our recreational division is the ideal environment for most kids. This program is the entry point for children who are new to the game. Experienced players who desire a more competitive environment should consider our TYSA Academy program (click HERE for more information about our Academy program). In recreation, we use fun games to develop basic skills, such as ball control and dribbling, and to further players' enjoyment of the game. Recreational soccer is coached by volunteers who are well equipped and supported by the organization and will receive weekly communications from the program director with important information and weekly practice sessions throughout the season. Our coaches use a curriculum made up of fun and developmentally appropriate practice activities. Fall season runs from late August to late October and our spring season runs from mid-March to mid-May.
