Academy Soccer

This popular program is returning this Fall for U10 boys and girls, and will follow USYSA Pool format that emphasizes player technical development. Players are on the Academy “team” playing at and on play dates scheduled with nearby Clubs. This will allow us to control their travel. More information will come for this group Early August.

New Program U9 Rec Plus

This will be a new program for our existing Rec League players as a transition program in anticipation of playing competitive/travel soccer. More information will be provided for this age group in mid-August as we begin to form Recreational Teams.

Arsenal Tryouts

U11 through U12 players are evaluated during tryouts in order to form teams with the goal of equally balancing talent and ability across the teams as per current MYSA rules. There is discussion regarding removing that stipulation and allow for "A" & "B" teams where player numbers allow. U13 through U19 players are evaluated during tryouts in order to form "A", "B" teams where player numbers allow; to develop players and challenge players to the highest level possible.  

The tryout process will be as follows:

  1. All players must register for tryouts and pay the $30 registration fee. This fee is applied to the overall HYSA Arsenal Program fees. 
  2. Players must attend both tryout sessions for their appropriate age group, unless advance arrangements are made with the HYSA Executive Director.
  3. All Play ups/downs are only good for one season and must be skill based. Any player requesting a play up or down must complete the required form and submit it to the HYSA Executive Director in advance of the tryout. The HYSA Executive Director will advise the players on which tryout to attend in advance, and it is likely that a player requesting a play-up/down will attend tryouts for both the appropriate age group and the one for which they are requesting to play with. No same-day requests for play-ups/down will be accepted. See below for more information. Play ups/downs are ultimately decided by MYSA and parents may or may not be asked for additional information.
  4. All Players must check in at the dome on the day of the tryouts. At check-ins, each players will recieve a number and attach it to their clothing as directed. A player will keep the number for second tryout and RETURN number when finished tryouts. 
  5. At each tryout session, a full player evaluation/assessment will be performed.
  6. All players must check-in at both tryout sessions.
  7. Players are NOT to wear any identifying HYSA gear and will be asked to change if they do. All players must wear white tops.  
  8. Players must have proper protection (shin guards fully covered by socks) and soccer cleats. additional equipment to play Goal Keeper.
  9. Players are encouraged to bring their ball. 
  10. All players are responsible to be ready to go at Tryout start time.
  11. HYSA attempts to place all players on a team, but in the event that we are unable to place a player, a refund of fees will be issued.
  12. At HYSA’s discretion, players may be placed in an age group different from their age to better their technical or tactical  development.  

All players will be required to commit to their team by paying the balance of their HYSA Arsenal program fees by deadline announced. 

For players new to the Arsenal program, please be aware that Arsenal teams are traveling teams and your player can end up traveling out of town on many weekends.  See “Cost” below for more information.


All play-ups/downs are for one season only.  All play-ups or play-downs must be skill appropriate or other extenuating circumstances.

Please apply by filling out the HYSA Arsenal Play-Up/Down Request Form (below) and turn in to the HYSA Executive Director in advance of the tryouts.
