The following email was sent to all youth registrants Monday morning.
Hello soccer families
Its Monday and this week is going to be a doozy!
We want to thank everyone for their patience as we get the season organized. Usually by this time in the month of May, we’d already have all schedules and rosters posted. As of today, we DO have all of that completed on the back end. With our numbers being UP over 20% from pre-COVID times, it has been a massive logistical challenge to get everything scheduled and then mapped out on a field schedule to ensure we didn’t double book any fields. In fact, just creating the field map for 2022 that will serve our larger than ever program was a beast of its own!
Today we will be closed as we move our office contents from our winter location to our summer building at the soccer fields. Its also the first day of the first week of the UK International Soccer camps, with more players in one week than we’ve ever had (there’s still room to sign up for next week’s 4-day camp, just FYI!). We also have a couple dozen new and returning referees participating in training today and tomorrow.
So! Give us another day, if you would, to get ourselves settled into the summer office and to get all the completed schedules and rosters uploaded into the website so we can post them, hopefully by tomorrow morning.
We will be open the rest of this week, Tuesday through Friday, from 10am to 6pm, at the summer location at 1901 Wilbur Street. For gear pickup purposes, you can drive down the center access road to our building in the center of the fields (blue/green roof with a ramp on the side). We will be open for some time on Saturday as well, but times are TBD.
We are still in major need of coaches, both volunteer positions for the 3rd grade through Middle School range as well as paid positions (or a full registration refund, your choice) for the PreK through 2nd grade range. For those who have already reached out about coaching, thank you! We will be getting in touch soon with details about team assignments, gear and other notes. Last week got away from us, but we’ll still plan to email individual teams that are in need of coach positions to be filled. But if you have interest or know someone who does, we’d love to hear from you.
Just between youth and adult soccer leagues alone, we have 225 teams. Don’t forget there are still options to sign up for our new youth lacrosse camps and mini seasons for the summer and fall, plus youth (and adult!) ultimate frisbee. More info on our website at www.fairbanksyouthsports.org
Once again, thank you for your patience and understanding. We’ve got a HUGE season planned and look forward to seeing all of your faces this summer.
Welcome to the new FYSA website! We've made a switch to this new platform for 2022, after utilizing the previous software for over 7 years. Without going into details, it was time for a change... We're excited for the enhancements available here from both the parent and admin side. However, with this change, as you'll discover, families will need to create a new account. We'll retain access to our previous platform for a while, in the event any families have a credit on file (or an open balance from a past registration!). If you have any questions or need assistance, feel free to contact us directly or call for assistance. There is a bit of a learning curve with this new website for our staff, so we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding with this switch. Meanwhile, we'll be working hard to learn as much as we can, as quickly as we can!
Check out what's in store for FYSA at the Carlson Center starting this fall! Indoor courts for soccer, tennis, volleyball, basketball, pickleball, and more! Click the image above to be taken to our fundraiser page with more info. We'd love your support for this major project!!!
The FYSA office currently has a limited amount of both youth and adult soccer cleats for sale. Sizes range from 8C (Toddler) to 13M (Men's). Prices will vary depending on size and model. Due to shipping/supply concerns we will not be able to special order any cleats this season. What we have on hand is what we'll have for the year!
Our office is located at 1422 Hampstead Ave. See the 'Our Facilities & Hours' tab for more information in the 'About Us' section.
We also love donations of used gear and enjoy getting those items into the hands of families who could use them.
