Members of BYSC,
We are excited to offer you and your child a number of different options here at BYSC. Some options differ depending on your child's age but ultimately it's your choice. We wanted to take the time to explain our options:
Option 1 - Recreational Soccer (U4-U19):
Our recreational soccer program is a great introduction to soccer for ages U4-U19. Practices are run by parent coaches - Individual players who additionally want to obtain professional training will have opportunities to also sign up for the Little Reds program, which is offered seasonally
Games are played in Beaumont on Saturdays - once teams reach the U9 age they may play some away games in Lumberton, Orange, Nederland or Fannett as necessary. The Fall season runs for 10 weeks and the Spring season runs for 6 weeks. Teams that do well can advance to District Championships at the end of the Fall Season. Players can sign up separately for the Fall and Spring.
Option 2 - Local Division 2 Soccer (U11-U19):
Our Local Division 2 program is designed for players who want a step up from Recreational soccer. This is only available starting at U11. Teams are formed through a tryout process which is conducted by BYSC and parent coaches who are required to attain a minimum of an "E" level Coaching License through the State Association.
Games are played in the Golden Triangle area against other Division 2 teams. On Saturdays home games are played in Beaumont and some away games may be played in Lumberton, Orange, Nederland and Fannett as necessary.
Teams that do well can advance to District Championships and State Championships at the end of the Fall Season. Players can sign up separately for the Fall and the Spring.
Option 3 - Liverpool FC America (U8-U19):
Starting this Fall BYSC has partnered with Liverpool FC America to offer a professional select soccer program. This program is designed for dedicated soccer players who want to learn how to take the sport to the next level and compete at a higher level. The program is split into two sections - The Academy (U8-U10) and Select (U11-U19). Players are trained by Liverpool FC America's professional soccer coaches/trainers. Additional costs are incurred by players in the form of training fees for this professional service.
The Academy program is available to all players U8-U10, teams are formed and coached by professional coaches screened by Liverpool FC America twice a week. Players are expected to commit from August - May.
The Select program is available to players aged U11-U19, teams are formed through a tryouts and selected by the professional coaching staff. Teams practice twice a week and players are expected to commit from August - May.

Both Liverpool and BYSC support the youth soccer community in Beaumont and the surrounding areas, and wish to provide youth soccer players of all ages, skill and experience levels, and socio-economic backgrounds with a wide range of options for their enjoyment of the game.
We encourage all parents to explore all options and attend tryouts for both BYSC Local Division 2 and Liverpool FC America.
