Q: If I miss the registration deadline for BAYS Travel soccer, can I still register my child?

A: Due to the strict timelines CYSA must meet in accordance with BAYS & MYSA, unfortunately, the deadline is the deadline. 

Q: If my child decides not to play after being registered, will I get a refund?

A: Once a player is registered, CYSA only provides refunds for the following reasons:

  • The family moves out of Canton
  • The player has a long-term injury
  • The player has a long-term illness

In these instances, a refund will be issued less a $25 (Travel) or $10 (In-Town) administration fee.  In order to meet MYSA & BAYS insurance deadlines, CYSA needs to make insurance payments based on initial registration data. Please note that refunds are not "automatic".  If you fit the above criteria, please contact the Registrar.

Q: Do I need to order a uniform?

A: If your child is playing travel soccer (grades 3-8) he/she DOES need a travel uniform. Once they have a uniform, you do not have to re-purchase unless they outgrow it or lose it. If your child plays in-town (PreK thru 2nd grade) you DO NOT need to order a uniform.  CYSA provides T-shirts to all in-town players.

Q: What is the Pre-K KICK-START program?

A: KICK-START is an introductory to soccer for 4 & 5 year olds.  

Q: How old must my child be for the pre-K, KICK-START program?

A: Our pre-K program is designed for children who will be age-eligible for Kindergarten by the following school year.  Basically, that means any 5-year old who is not already in Kindergarten (and therefore not qualifying for Kindergarten soccer), and any 4-year old who will be turning five by the Kindergarten cut-off date of August 31st.  Additionally, we allow any child who is 4 years old by the day of the first session to participate.  While we are certain there are those children who are younger but may be ready for soccer, there are many more who just are not ready.
