FALL RECREATION

Since its establishment in 1999, this program has remained at the core of BGYSA, providing a source of enjoyment and education for both athletes and coaches. It continues to uphold its legacy as a platform for fun and learning.

 

BGYSA divides its teams into the following age groups based on a calendar cutoff system:

Tiny Tikes - Coed (3-5yr olds), U7/U8 Boys(6-7yr olds), U7/U8 Girls (6-7yr olds), U9/U10 boys (8-9yr olds), U9/U10 girls (8-9yr olds), U12 Coed (11-12yr olds), U15 Coed (13-15yr olds)

Because of the arrangement involving birth year groups, it's important to note that no child is permitted to "play up" under any circumstances.  We also highly recommend that players participate in our recreational league before joining our competitive league

Competitive Season

The BGYSA Select Soccer Program caters to competitive players within the Association. With a track record of nurturing skilled soccer talents, BGYSA has witnessed players advancing to collegiate levels and embracing coaching roles. Several of our players feature on Olympic Development Regional Teams, showcasing our program's caliber. Recent times have seen Select program members and coaches garner accolades, and BGYSA consistently excels in the RI Cup State Championships. Acknowledging diverse player aspirations, we determine competitive team selection based on skill and dedication, understanding that not everyone pursues a competitive path.

Join us for BGYSA's Competitive season tryouts beginning mid-June at the BGYSA Soccer Complex in Chepachet. The season comprises of two indoor sessions and one outdoor spring session, providing an ideal chance for players to enhance their skills.
