Clark Park Youth Soccer League (CPYSL), a program of Friends of Clark Park, provides soccer instruction and intramural games for children ages 5-11 on Saturdays each spring and fall at Clark Park. CPYSL emphasizes enjoying the game of soccer while learning soccer skills. Every child plays every week.
CPYSL offers two 9-week seasons. Players ages 5 through 8 take the field from 10:30 am until 12 noon; ages 9 through 11 from noon until 1:30 pm. Each 90-minute session includes both skills training and a game.
All CPYSL coaches are volunteers and most have completed a coach-training program through the Eastern Pa. Youth Soccer Association, of which CPYSL is a member. Parents and other adults are invited to join CPYSL as a coach or assistant. Knowledge of soccer is helpful, but it is not required. Each year we must turn away children because there are not enough volunteer coaches. If you’re interested in coaching, call now and leave a message at 215-552-8186.
