Intramural Soccer Program – Commissioner, Joel Zickler

The CHYSC Intramural Soccer Program promotes a fun environment for players to be introduced to the fundamentals of soccer. With the multitude of schools that serve Northwest Philadelphia and the surrounding communities, our program is a wonderful way for children to meet new friends and neighbors.

Our ability to grant special requests is limited, particularly for U10 and above.

Season begins with practices during the week following Labor Day Weekend and runs into early or mid-November, depending upon the age group. U6 and U7 finish the first weekend in November.

Here is the tentative general schedule with field assignments. Full league schedules will be released in latter August.

The youngest league includes 5 and 6 year old boys and girls. It is focused on fun drills and games that help to introduce the game of soccer and develop the skills that will serve the children into the future.

We are now also assigning referees to U10 and above.

Intramural play starts the week after Labor Day and extends until early November. The older leagues include playoffs that award a league champion team. Occasionally, some of the leagues designate players to form a “select” team to play in a post-season tournament against other regional clubs.

Volunteers Always Needed

CHYSC is an all-volunteer organization that exists only through the committed efforts of adults interested in the development of our region’s youth through sports. Most notably, the Intramural Program, with its many leagues and teams, is always in need of adults to serve as coaches and assistant coaches. Prior soccer experience is not necessary; merely the willingness to pitch in to help create a successful experience for the kids. CHYSC offers several opportunities for adults to develop their knowledge of soccer and coaching skills. The U6 and U7 leagues, in particular, always need adult volunteers to step up. Adults need to also register as coaches at the CHYSC website www.chysc.org under the soccer registration banner. Most teams have a head coach and one or more assistant coaches, so the time commitment can be shared among several adults.
