North Area Youth Soccer Association (NAYSA) was formed in 1983 by parents interested
in providing RECREATIONAL soccer to the North Syracuse area. Since that
time, the Association has expanded its coverage to include Clay, Salina,
North Syracuse, Cicero, Liverpool, Mattydale and Baldwinsville. The Association
has offered thousands of children the chance to participate in a reasonably
priced outdoor soccer program. Parents/guardians of all participants are
automatically considered Trustees of the Association.
The ages served by the Association are 5 through 18. To participate, the child
must be 5 by July 31st of the current season and no older than 18 by
the end of the season. NAYSA offers five divisions; a 6 & Under
Instructional Division, 8 & Under, 10 & Under, 13 & Under and
18 & Under years of age. The main focus of all divisions is to teach
the children the game of soccer and skill development.
The Association is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the Trustees
in the Fall of each year. The Board consists of eight to ten people willing
to volunteer for a two year term of office. Four or five new Board Members
are elected each year.
