A4: Players in the U9 to U14 age groups are allowed to roster up to two years, Players in the U15 and older age groups are allowed to roster up to any older age groups. These are the rules, but it is the coaches’ decision if they thinks it is best for a players development to play-up. Playing up at the younger ages is not condoned at IYSA and must be approved by Peter Duckworth.
A12: If your player is selected for the team, it is considered a one year commitment. This does not mean soccer occurs heavily all year long, it just means the team stays together for an entire year to maintain team chemistry.
A13: Brevard Youth Soccer League (BYSL) teams usually come from as far north as Titusville and as far south as Vero Beach. Most teams U10 and below play in the BYSL. Greater Central Florida (GCF) Teams can come from as far away as Ocala. Most teams U11 and above play in GCF. The Fall season is normally 10 games and the Spring season is normally 8 games. Half of these games will be played at the Hoover fields. Older State Cup teams may join leagues like FSPL that requires much more travel.
A15: No. Unlike recreational soccer, playing time is at the discretion of the coach. It is usually every coaches intention that every player that makes the team and puts in the effort at practice will get playing time in games.
A17: Most competitive teams play in tournaments in addition to the standard league games. The number and types of tournaments are at the coaches discretion based on the team ability, commitment, and funding. Reference the team information sheets for anticipated tournament schedules.
A20: It depends on the coach. Most players will be notified by the coach a few days after the final scheduled tryout, if not sooner. Often if a player is not selected, the coach will recommend alternatives.
A21: A tryout acceptance email will be sent via TeamSnap that lets the players know they have been accepted. The next time they log into their account, there will be a tryout acceptance button available, which is where they would begin their season registration process and pay the $150 registration fee.
Q23: Yes, renowned English trainer Peter Duckworth works with all IYSA comp players in U9 and U10 one night of week at no extra charge. Independent trainers make themselves available for team and personal training at the older age groups which is normally included in the team training fee.
