Select Soccer

About LYS Select

LYS Select programs provide U8 through U16 players a high-quality middle ground between traditional recreational soccer programs and the commitment and cost of club soccer.

Participating with an LYS Select Team requires participating in the LYS Tryouts that happen in early May each year. The younger LYS Select Teams participate in the OYSA Developmental Leagues and the older LYS Select Teams participate in the OYSA Competitive Leagues.

LYS Select Age Brackets

  • All competitive and development soccer teams are formed based on calendar¬†year birthdates instead of school year.
  • This differs from the Recreational soccer leagues which are based on the school year

LYS Select Tryouts

LYS and all other select programs conduct annual tryouts in late April / early May. The exact tryout dates are dictated by OYSA and will be published to the LYS website in early April of each year.
