ADULT INDOOR LEAGUE
The BYSC is excited to offer a second Adult Indoor League session this coming Winter starting in January 2018! Building on the success of the inaugural AIL season with 44 teams registered, the BYSC will be offering adult recreational
leagues at our Sherwood Forest Dome facilities in the following divisions:
- Coed Open Age
- Mens Open Age, 30+, & 35+
- Ladies Open Age
These leagues will give adult players in our community a chance to continue playing with the club! Participants can register as an individual and be placed on a team, or people can gather their friends and submit a team. The goal of this league is to increase our program offerings to allow our loyal participants to continue playing the beautiful game with the BYSC for a longer period.
Isn't the BYSC a "Youth" Club? Why are adult programs now being offered?
Adult Soccer Offers Opportunities for a Lifetime
As part of its Strategic Plan for 2017-2021, BYSC has committed to expand programs to create lifelong opportunities for players. This began with the launch of Lil Burli for toddlers, Embracing Ability for players with and/or without intellectual and/or physical disabilities and Walking Soccer for players 50+ and/or those with mobility issues. In the Summer Outdoor Season BYSC added Coed Open Age to its program choices.
In Fall and Winter of 2017/2018 the Club is proud to launch indoor recreational leagues for adults to include: Men’s Open Age, Ladies Open Age, COED Open Age, Men’s 40+, Men’s 30+ and Ladies 35+. These recreational leagues will give players in the community a chance to continue with the BYSC beyond just U21 or our Senior Bayhawks teams.
Frequently Asked Questions
Isn’t BYSC a Youth Soccer Club? In name only. An Ontario Soccer Club Excellence Gold Standard member, BYSC is sanctioned to run both Youth and Adult programs, and has had adult competitive teams as well as U21 and Coed recreational leagues as part of its programs. Going forward the BYSC will look to update its branding to better align with our program offerings.
Why is BYSC offering adult programs when there are Adult Leagues in Burlington?BYSC has seen a gap in playing opportunities once players have previously “aged out” of what has been offered at the Club. Additionally we want to continue to engage with our members throughout their lifetimes and offer parents the chance to enjoy the Beautiful Game as their kids do. There are a number of Adult Leagues in the community serving their members and we expect they will continue to do so. We believe that more opportunities for people to stay active and play soccer is better for everyone!
Why are the rental hours of third party Adult Leagues changing? BYSC pays for and operates the three Domes located in Sherwood Forest Park the seven months of the year they are up. This means that BYSC is responsible for the set-up, maintenance, removal and storage of all three domes. The BYSC pays for all capital improvements and replacements (like mechanical units, dome shells, lights, and will pay 7/12 of the cost to replace the turf under Domes 2 & 3 in 2018). As such, the BYSC programs its activities in its Domes first. We make the remaining hours available to third parties, starting with sports groups in Burlington. As we have expanded our programs on both the youth and adult side, we have fewer hours available to be rented. In some cases, this has meant adjusting the timeslots offered to renters.
