Fall 2023 Recreation Resources

Recreation Program

With an emphasis 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 equipped and supported by the organization and will receive 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 mid-September to early November and our spring season runs from early March to mid-May.

KinderKix and U6 will not meet during the week for practice. They will meet every Saturday for the 8 week season, starting on September 16th.

Brooklyn Owen (Recreation Program Coordinator) will send out lesson plans to all the coaches before the season begins. 

U8-U16 will be placed on a team and their Head Coach will contact them with their practice and game schedule. Practices will be for 60 minutes, once/week with one game scheduled every Saturday for 8 weeks. Depending on registration and volunteers, we will tentatively have a U8 Girls and U10 Girls league (playing other girls teams and U8/10 Boys teams), U12 will be split into individual coed teams, and U14/16 will engage in pool play (one large group practicing together and split into even teams on Saturdays).

Volunteers are needed as Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches & Team Parents!
Head Coaches are required and Assistant Coaches are encouraged to attend our Coaches Clinic where they will receive their team rosters, practice plans, equipment, reserve their practice field, and any other support they need to make this a fun and positive learning experience for everyone! Head Coaches will either receive free registration for any children playing recreational soccer during Spring 2023 OR a $50 Visa Gift Card at the end of the season after turning in all of their equipment as a THANK YOU from TYSA!

Lloyd's Soccer: Jersey Order information

NOTE: Jerseys will be available to order from Lloyd's Soccer by mid-July

New this year, recreation players will be responsible for ordering their jerseys from Lloyd's Soccer
. Registration fees have been adjusted to reflect this new ordering system. Players will ONLY be responsible for purchasing a NAVY jersey. *Please note that players registered through The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club and El Centro will not be responsible for ordering their jerseys through Lloyd's (this will be completed by TYSA and the partner organization).

Please reach out to tysaso[email protected] with any questions regarding jersey orders. 

Order recreation jerseys through Lloyd's Soccer HERE

Which jersey(s) do I need to buy for my child?
All divisions: 1 NAVY jersey (individual teams will wear pinnies)

What is the cost of each jersey? 
Each jersey is $15 via Lloyd's soccer. If you are not able to buy jerseys for your child, please reach out to [email protected]. Our mission is to serve any child, regardless of socioeconomic status, through our programs, and any email requests we receive to waive the jersey fee will be confidential.

Who does not have to order jerseys? 
Players who participated in the recreation program in Fall 2022/Spring 2023 can wear the NAVY jersey from a previous season, and any jersey ordered for this fall season can be used for subsequent seasons. Players registered through El Centro and The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club of Transylvania County are not required to order their jerseys - TYSA will place a bulk order for these players prior to the season. 

When do I need to order my jerseys to receive them for the Spring 2023 season? 
Jerseys should be ordered at least two weeks (14 days) before the start of the season (September 16th, 2023) in order to receive them by the first game day.

Why is TYSA requiring families to order jersey for players? 
TYSA is a small non-profit with one staff member coordinating the recreation program for approximately 300 players each season. This will significantly reduce the legwork required in ensuring each player receives their jersey, and Lloyd's Soccer has made the process simple to order jerseys.
