Please take note of the following information:


BYSL’s Annual General Meeting will be held on November 6, 2014 at 8:00 PM at the Idaho Falls Activity Center on Skyline Drive. (Please note the time change). A brief “annual review” of BYSL will be presented, followed by an election for three board positions. Each affiliated team and each member of the board of directors of BYSL is entitled to come to the meeting and vote to fill the open board spots. Only those present will be allowed a vote.

Currently three people have stated their intention to run for the three board positions. These three individuals are Dan Beck, Jason Lance, and Preston Atamanzyck. If you would like to run for a board position, please contact Jason Lance at as soon as possible.

Existing board members are Scott Staker, Judy Brower, Bobbi Tracy, Cheri Cook, Julie Nawrocki, and Dee Tigue.

The annual general meeting is followed by a meeting of the Board where new officers (including President, Vice-President, etc.) are elected from among the Board members for the upcoming year.

BYSL Fees For 2014/2015 Seasonal Year

Just wanted to make everyone aware of some adjustments in our fees for the 2014/2015 seasonal year. These fees were approved by the Board at the June, 2014 Board meeting. The fees for U6 remained unchanged; the fees for U8/U10/U11/U12 and Junior High were increased by $10; and the fees for U13-U19 were increased by $20. Our fees are (and will continue to be) much lower than the fees charged by most other similar organizations in the state of Idaho and as a Board we want to keep the fees as low as possible while actively working to create the best possible soccer experience for our kids.

To see a full listing of the fees we charge for each program BYSL offers go to our “FEES” page.  

Revolution Girls-Cache Valley Cup Champions

This past weekend several of our teams participated in the Cache Valley Cup. I don’t know results for other teams yet, though I have heard that BYSL had a great showing. I do know that Kara Peterson’s Revolution team, with guest players from Storm and Lightning, took first place in the U13 Silver division.
