Baldwinsville Youth Soccer Association (B.Y.S.A.)

Volunteer Info

Volunteer with BYSA

Founded in 1994, the Baldwinsville Youth Soccer Association (BYSA) is a not-for-profit recreational soccer league for kids ages 3 1/2-13 and is open to all residents of the Central New York area. BYSA is affiliated with New York State West Youth Soccer Association, a state member of the US Youth Soccer Association.


BYSA’s mission includes teaching the fundamentals, encouraging good sportsmanship, promoting teamwork, improving physical fitness, teaching respect and having FUN.

Join the team and help support the community and your child's team.  There are many ways to get involved such as:

  • Board Members

    Board Members serve a two-year term. Board meetings are held once a month to review procedures, problems, and future objectives. See the web site for a current list of available Board Member positions.  If you have any questions please reach out to [email protected] or [email protected].


  • Coaches/Assistant Coaches

    Coaches and Assistants commit to 8 weeks of practice and 6 games in the fall and the same again in the spring. There are no requirements for being a coach or assistant except a willingness to help. A Coaching Clinic is held each fall to provide training on practice drills and game strategies.  Even if you have no experience with Soccer we can help by supporting you with some drills to use.  We may even be able to pair you up with another coach. 


  • Concession Stand Helpers

    Each Saturday at McNamara, a concession stand is set up.  Parent volunteers are needed to man the stand each week.  Volunteering for just a couple of hours on one Saturday is a big help.



    Anyone 13 years or older is eligible to be a referee. This includes former players, parents, grandparents and college students.


    Inexperienced referees start out with the U6 division. BYSA provides the training and referees are paid per game.


Referee Clinics are held every year prior to each the Fall and Spring sessions. Referees will be contacted by the Referee Director and a schedule will be distributed prior to each game day.
