News

Welcome to the Suburban Youth Soccer League (SYSL)!

SYSL is a recreational league kicking off for the 2017-2018 season and is comprised of member clubs from the suburban New Jersey footprint of Union, Middlesex, Essex, and Somerset counties. The league offers high quality, flighted competition ranging from the purely recreational athlete through to more competitive players that cannot make a full-time commitment to a rigorous travel soccer program. SYSL provides a supportive structure to foster development and recreation without abandoning the thrill of competition and thus provides a home for players at every skill level. 

If you have any questions in the meantime, you can contact spfsapresident@gmail.com for assistance.
