About us

Cocalico Youth Soccer Club (CYSC) is a comprehensive program for U6 (Kindergarten) through U19 designed to place the focus on teaching our youngest players the skills needed to truly enjoy the game of soccer. The U6 through U8 program will be based on having fun and learning skills. Once they graduate into our Recreational (Rec.) and Select programs the players will progress into the 7v7 style of play, all the while working on their skills, footwork and knowledge of the game. Our soccer club is a non-profit organization that is made up of members of the community that volunteer their time in a variety of ways. We encourage parents to get involved at every level.
