SSPYSA Competitive Program Mission Statement

It is the mission of the SSPYSA, through our competitive soccer program, to develop confidence, respect and determination in our participants. Individual players will see an increase in skill, discipline and sportsmanship as it relates to the game of soccer, their coaches, fellow players and officials. The SSPYSA Board of Directors supports the development of competitive soccer teams with a vision for long term participation in the game.
