General Information


Do you have a child between the ages of 4 and 12? We have a great program for you to get involved with! BYSA practices one night a week and has games on Saturdays. We break the kids up by age: 

Mini Mites (age 4) practices once a week, and has 2-4 scrimmages during the season on Saturday mornings.

Mites (age 5) 

Bantams (ages 6-7)

Juniors (8-9)

Seniors (10-12)

Ages 5-12 practice once a week and have games on Saturday mornings during the months of September and October. 

Many of our families have multiple children playing in our program, so we do what we can to make the practice nights as easy for you as possible, but we cannot make any guarantees of preferred practice nights. We are completely run by volunteer parents just like you! Many of our team forming and practice nights are subject to availability of our volunteers. 

In years past, we have practiced at the Knowlton School on Noble Lane and played our games at the Recreation Field on Sweetser Street. This is subject to change at the discretion of the board of directors.

Our teams are formed by the first week in August, and the game schedule will be released by mid-August. Coaches will be notified as soon as teams are finalized. Coaches will contact players families a week before practices begin. 


If you would like to know how you can help BYSA succeed for your children please attend our monthly meetings. New date and time for 2015 coming soon. We welcome any ideas or suggestions you have! Thank you to everyone who volunteers for BYSA, our organization is strictly run by volunteers like you, and we can't do it without you!!
