Aurora and Saskatoon Youth Soccer (SYSI) are pleased to announce a new format and structure for the SYSI competitive leagues, which is more in line with the aspirations and needs of players.

Over the past nine months, SYSI and its affiliated club Technical Directors have studied best practices regarding the formation and placing of teams within our leagues. Many academic studies and interviews with clubs and experts in player development across Canada and other parts of the world produced the following information:

  • Optimal development in youth players occurs when players of similar abilities are grouped together
  • A controlled study showed that in groups of mixed ability, neither the more advanced players nor the less advanced improved to the extent that they did when they were grouped by ability.
  • League play and games are more enjoyable for all when they are competitive, and any team could win on a given day.
  • Organizations that care, recognize their responsibility to ensure that child and youth players are appropriately placed in programs that provide optimal development opportunities.

City Rec League:

is an alternative recreational experience, for those who prefer not to make the commitments for competitive soccer and wish to enjoy a more relaxed environment. Format is 7v7 with standings and final match for U13-U19 divisions.

  • Players must commit to one game per week and two additional training sessions per week with the potential of being assessed and selected (if interested) to the Alliance Academy for one additional training session per week.
  • Those who register for the Alliance league will have an evaluation. If the Alliance league is not the correct place for them, technically, socially, and developmentally, Aurora Technical may place players into the City League. The players moved to the City League will receive a minimum of two sessions per week(one for U17/U19) and can be moved to the Alliance League if they become competent in the areas, they needed competency in, at the behest of the Technical Committee.
  • League will be structured by age group into juniors and seniors (numbers permitting) ie.- U11 there will be a U10 A+B teams and a U11A+B teams boys and girls, again numbers permitting.
  • U11 and U13 will have predominantly Senior/Junior groupings if numbers permit

League FAQ

 

Why are there two separate leagues?

Saskatoon Youth Soccer has moved to the two-league format to provide a wider range of options for youth soccer to meet the different commitments desired by different players.

The City Rec League is an alternative recreational experience, for those who prefer not to make the commitments for competitive soccer and wish to enjoy a more relaxed environment. Format is 7v7 with standings and final match for U13-U19 divisions.

The Alliance League is for players who have soccer as their primary activity and want to play competitively. There are more opportunities for development and as a result the time commitment is greater. It is similar to our current club program with one game and two practices per week. The Alliance Academy provides an additional practice each week. Players are expected to be committed to the program.

 

Why has the cost increased?

Costs are based on fees that the zones are required to pay to Saskatoon Youth Soccer. The new structure includes more field times, resulting in a higher cost. Turf and Hardcourt Surfaces are the same cost per hour. Fees also cover other costs that Aurora incurs in running the programs such as paid coaching staff and equipment. With the addition that you might have to purchase a uniform, but these then become yours. 

 

Why do I have to purchase a new uniform kit for this upcoming season?

The cost of the uniforms is separate from the fee as this is the same uniform from previous seasons. You will need to purchase one if you are new to the club. We will be contiuning with this jersey design for one more year.

 

Do I have to register for the Alliance League and Alliance Academy?

The Alliance Academy is a separate registration and program as it is run by Saskatoon Youth Soccer (it is city-wide, not zoned). Participation in the program is tryout driven, but players must also be registered in their zone Alliance League to be eligible.

 

Can I play in the City Rec League and tryout for PSL?

No - Players in the City Rec League will NOT be eligible for PSL the following spring/summer.

 

How do I register for the Alliance Academy?

Registration is done through the Saskatoon Youth Soccer website.

 

Can my kid switch between Alliance and City Rec leagues?

Any player can more to the City league from the Alliance league if determined by the TD that the development needs of the player would suit moving into the Alliance league.  During a season once in the City league to move to Alliance League will come with the approval of the TD.

 

Will a refund be offered switching from Alliance to City Rec?

Yes, you will receive a refund in fees based on the difference in cost if you move from the Alliance league to the City League

 

Is there a cost to switch from City Rec to Alliance?

Yes, you will have the pay the difference in the fees if you move to Alliance league from City League

 

 

The general idea behind these decisions is creating environments to develop all players the most beneficial, fun way possible, while following long term player development.
