Welcome to the Newburyport Youth Soccer Association (NYSA) home page
NYSA is a non-profit athletic community whose mission is to enrich the physical and mental lives of kids through the sport of soccer. Founded in 1980, each year NYSA provides over 1000 young players in our community the opportunity to play and enjoy the game of soccer. By ensuring that they learn, compete, and have fun, players will learn valuable physical and social skills that will assist them in life on and off the field. On this site you should be able to find everything you need to know about NYSA from team schedules and player registration, to how you can help by volunteering your time. We continue to update the site regularly, so please remember to add a bookmark and visit often.

On the day of the evaluations, please ensure your child checks at the Registration table to receive a numbered pinny. And please ensure they have the following with them:
1. A copy of their birth certificate. We will not keep the copy, we just need to verify the birthdate. (If it is on file on the NYSA site, please let us know.)
2. A 1 x 1 in head shot photo for their mandatory player I.D. card. The league we play in requires each child to have an I.D. Card. If we do not have a picture of your child, we will be unable to register them on a team. Picture does not need to be on photo paper, plain paper is fine. Please make sure your child’s name is on the back of the photo! If your child will be playing for the second year in the same age group, we do not need a new photo.
There are no make-up sessions scheduled for evaluations. We appreciate if you could make every effort to have your child attend, even if for part of the evaluation. In case of illness or injury, please contact Rosemary Turgeon at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss. Details about the program, the evaluations and the team placement process can be found on the NYSA website – www.newburyportsoccer.com, click on the “U12 Players/U14 Players” link.
We're looking forward to seeing the players for evaluations. If you have questions or concerns in advance of registration and evaluations, please feel free to contact us.
