What is your refund policy?

CSC issues refunds minus the league fee, which is $15 for U-6/U-8 and $23 for U-10 and above. The refund is 100% minus the league fee until the first game. On or after the first game, the refund is 50% minus the league fee. For U-14 and U-16 players, the first game is August 24, 2019. For all other players, the first game is September 8, 2018. Uniform fees can be refunded only if the club has not yet ordered uniforms.  

Do you use player cards?

Yes, for the safety of our players, all SYSL clubs use player cards to ensure that kids are playing in the appropriate age group.

Do you screen your coaches?

Yes, all coaches and board members are fingerprinted and go through a Department of Justice background check.

How much will my child play during a game?

League rules state that all kids on a team must play at least 50% of the time. This rule is enforced by the referees.

How do I determine my child’s age category?

“U” stands for “under.” So U-6, for example, means “under 6.” The following table lists the birthdate ranges for player age groups. The same chart is shown during the registration process so you can choose the right age group for your player.

  • U-6  birthdate 2014-2015
  • U-8  birthdate 2012-2013
  • U-10 birthdate 2010-2011
  • U-12 birthdate 2008-2009
  • U-14 birthdate 2006-2007
  • U-16 birthdate 2004-2005
  • U-19 birthdate 2001-2003
