If you wait, you may not play! We offer open registration on a first come, first serve basis. LNYSA  will make every effort to place all interested players registered before the January 22, 2013 deadline, on teams providing we have enough volunteer coaches and referees. Priority will be given to families who fulfilled their volunteer commitment in Fall 2011.  All registration will be done on-line or at our single walk-in registration to be held Sunday January 6, 2013, from Noon to 4pm at Sea Country Community Center. ALL U8-14 PLAYERS MUST REGISTER BEFORE THE JANUARY 22 DEADLINE.  (team formation for these ages will begin on January 23rd and so players not listed as registered at this time will not be eligible to play in the Spring Season. )
