With its roots dating back to 1986, Charlevoix Youth Soccer (CYS) has been promoting youth soccer in the Charlevoix area for over 25 years. CYS is a children's youth soccer club under the direction of the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association (MSYSA) that encourages exercise, education, individual growth and fun. CYS currently runs two soccer programs open to all area youths.
The Recreation League runs from August-October with a sign up in May. Children are placed on various community sponsored teams and learn to play soccer from parent volunteers throughout the community. The teams are co-ed and take a recreational approach. Team ages run from U-6 to U-14. Since this is a recreational league field sizes and number of participants will vary per year.
The Travel League runs in the spring and fall with a general sign up in January. Teams are made up of age appropriate and gender specific children, with more experienced volunteer coaches. The teams will travel to local communities and play on spring or fall weekends and may choose to participate in tournaments. This league focuses on the player who wants a more competitive atmosphere than a recreational league offers. All of the core elements still exist, with education and fun being stressed. This is not a tryout or premier league and participation is on a first come first served basis. The number of teams offered each year is based on interest in a given age group and coach availability.
