The VYS Over-30 Adult League, or “Parent League,” is a recreational league designed to give the parents and volunteers in the VYS community an opportunity to exercise, improve understanding of the game, make new friends and socialize within the VYS community.
The primary objective of the Parent League is "to make the sport fun for the children." Emphasis is on the process of learning how to play the game well, and not on the competitive end game result of winning or losing.
The league continues to demonstrate that providing an opportunity for the VYS adult membership to experience playing the game with their peers improves their understanding of and appreciation for the sport, and prepares them to better manage VYS programs and to parent their youth players.
A player wanting to register to play in the Parent League must meet the following eligibility requirements:
- The player must be in good standing with the club.
- The player must turn age 30 on or before August 1 preceding the season of play.
- A male player must be affiliated with VYS in at least ONE of the following ways:
- Has a youth player who will be registered with VYS during the same season, or who was registered with VYS during a previous season;
- Serves as a volunteer during the current season.
A female player is not subject to this requirement.
Players who join the Parent League should be prepared to play a friendly, non-contact game. The modified rules for the league can be found on the VYS website and all players should become familiar with these rules.
Games and Uniform
Parent League games are typically played every Friday night during the VYS season, with a start time between 6:30pm and 9:30pm. Jerseys are $26.50 each and are to be worn for games. Shin guards are required for games.
Players will be asked to verify their eligibility before the start of their first season with the league. Players may register for the Parent League on the VYS registration site while registering their children or when registering as a volunteer for the season. Please submit all appropriate registration materials, including verification of birth date and the US Club Soccer Adult Player Registration and Waiver Form to the VYS Registrar.
Cost of the program is $92.50 for nine weeks of games.
Please register on time for guaranteed placement on a team! Team assignments change from season to season and players register for the league, not to play on a specific team.
Please forward any questions about the Parent League to the Over-30 Commissioner.
