Necessary attitude:
Children who register for this program are expected to participate and follow coach directions. Soccer in the Schools reserves the right to dismiss children from the program who refuse to participate and follow coach directions.  If players are picked up later than 5:00pm more than two times they will be removed from the program.
BYS relies on volunteers to coach teams, monitor playgrounds, manage equipment, take children to restrooms, supervise school dismissal, and supervise player pick-ups after practice. Please sign up to volunteer when you register!
