The Connetquot Youth Soccer League is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed in 1993 with the purpose of serving Ronkonkoma and our surrounding communities as a youth soccer program designed for players from ages 3 & up to increase their skill, knowledge and enjoyment of the game and sport of soccer.
We are a 100% parent run volunteer organization and CYSL is an open league not limited to accepting player or team registrations from a specific school district or town such as the Connetquot School District.
CYSL as an organization continually works to improve all of its members as players and as people in a positive and enjoyable environment through coaching and support.
Players in the club will have the opportunity to experience a variety of types of soccer in a multitude of settings for each varying age and skill level as we offer Intramural ages 3-9 , Interleague 9 & up coed as well as our competitive travel program for ages 9 & up.
We offer two seasons of play: The Fall season which typically begins in early September and ends in November The Spring which typically begins in late March or Early April and concludes in June. The average intramural season consists of 8 games, please be sure to check the calendar portion of our website for current seasonal information start dates, holiday weekends and end dates as well as information related to other levels of play .
