New this season:
Division training sessions: The first three weeks of practice (8/10-8/28) will include one division training session each week. These training sessions will include all teams and coaches from each division. The sessions will be facilitated by the JYS staff and coaches will train their team/players. Each team will also conduct one individual team practice each week. All teams will practice individually after 8/28. The goal of this format is to provide each player an opportunity to learn key fundamentals for their age group and to assist coaches (both new and returning) with soccer training ideas that they can incorporate into their individual team training sessions.
