RECREATION LEAGUE

Fall/Spring Outdoor League

The YMS Recreation League is open to children, ages 3-18 (or high school seniors) - Peewees through Varsity Coed. The programs each run through an eight-week season. The fall season begins the weekend after Labor Day and ends by early November. The spring season begins in late March/April and ends before the school year ends. 

Separate registration and fees are required for each season.

  • Early Bird (thru 7/8/22): $140/player
  • Regular Fee (7/9/22-8/12/22): $150/player
  • Late Fee (after 8/12/22): $185/player

*A $25/player Facilities Fee is also required for each registration. This fee will go towards the operational costs to maintain and improve fields and facilities for the club.

If divisions reach capacity, please register for the waitlist. You will only be charged the facilities fee at registration. If we are able to place your player on a team, we will contact you with instructions on how to pay the registration fee. If we are unable to place your player on a team, we will refund the facilities fee.

FALL/SPRING RECREATION LEAGUE OVERVIEW:

  • All children are eligible to play and will play a minimum of half the game. All games have referees (with the exception of Peewees) who, along with the coaches, are instructed in the rules of the game for the children’s safety and protection.
  • Games are played on either Friday evenings or Saturdays, depending on the age group. Practices occur during the week at the discretion of the volunteer coach, for divisions U6 & older (no practices for Peewees). Schedules and locations will be sent out by coaches as soon as they are available.
  • Registration for the Spring program opens soon after the Fall season concludes, while the Fall registration opens at the conclusion of the Spring season. All registrations are done online through the YMS website. An early bird discount is offered for those who register early. Late fees apply after certain dates.
  • All games are played at either Macclesfield Park (1000 River Road, Yardley PA) or Edgewood Elementary School (899 Oxford Valley Road, Yardley, PA)
  • Age groups fill up fast, and you will be waitlisted as soon as the league limits are met. We operate on a first come, first serve basis. Waitlisted players will only be allowed to play if an opening becomes available. We have limited access to fields, so we must limit our team rosters to make each player get as much time as possible on the field and around the ball.
  • Please do not request a certain team, time or coach. We have several hundred players to place between our travel, and adult league programs. We have a random draft and we cannot honor requests. The purpose of random selection is to ensure fairness, and allows children, parents, and coaches to meet new people within the community.

Volunteers Needed!

We are always looking for volunteer coaches and assistant coaches. Don’t be shy, get out there with your kids! Support for volunteer coaches is provided via coaching clinics, coaching videos, and coaching plans at beginning of each season. You can check off the volunteer buttons in the registration form.  

Background clearances are required for all volunteers. Click the link below for clearance requirements.

Winter Indoor League

The YMS Winter Indoor League is held at the YMS TEC (255 Lower Morrisville Road, Fallsington, PA). The season runs on Saturdays for 8 weeks, from the beginning of January through the end of February. The format is one hour per week, with a training session followed by a small-sided game (no practices).  Separate registration and fees are required for each season.
