Welcome to the Nashville Youth Soccer Association

The Nashville Youth Soccer Association (NYSA) has been providing a quality youth soccer experience in the Nashville, Tennessee area for over 30 years. NYSA is a co-ed youth recreational soccer league for players ages 3 (must have turned 3 years old by July 31, 2014) through high school (click here for age groups by birth date). There are no tryouts and children are accepted regardless of whether they've played soccer before or not. It's our mission to provide a safe place where children can be exposed to the game of soccer and to learn the game. The NYSA fields are located in Donelson, just off McGavock Pike.

The Nashville Youth Soccer Association is an all-volunteer non-profit organization, comprised mostly of parents who have children in the league. One hundred percent of our registration fees go to pay the expenses in running the league, to make improvements to our complex, and to purchase equipment to keep up our facility. NYSA has no employees and there are no paid positions on the Board of Directors.

For more information, please see the "About NYSA" and "Frequently Asked Questions" links at the left.

We hope that your family will join us!

Fill the Fence, Raise the Roof!
 


The Nashville Youth Soccer Association continues the rebuilding process following the May 2010 Flood! Our current campaign is focused on building a combined Concessions and Board building. We have been running our concession sales (used to help cover our referee and maintenance costs) from a previously flooded building that we were able to completely gut and salvage. Our previous Board Building was completely destroyed in the flood. All of our organizational needs – recordkeeping, Board meeting space, storage space for shirt sales, etc. all have been forced to move offsite vs. a unified space.

Purchasing a banner not only helps us raise funds for the new building, but it also benefts your company through a low-cost advertising campaign that will literally be seen by thousands of people each week. Click here for more information and for the banner order form.

Referee Certification Information

We often have parents and/or players asking us about where they can take referee certification classes. Certification courses are held throughout the year in various locations in middle Tennessee. The easiest way to find out where classes are being held is to go to the Soccer Officials of Tennessee web page at http://soccerofficialstn.org/ and click the "Approved Classes" link at the top of the page. There you may view the classes being offered by month, as well as where and when the courses will take place.

You'll see that there are classes for different grades of referees. For someone getting certified for the first time, the choice is really between a Grade 8 (black patch) and Grade 9 (blue patch) certification. Both Grades are considered "Entry Level" certification. A Grade 9 certification allows a person to referee recreational youth games for ages 14 and younger as well as assistant referee on any game U-14 or below. Grade 8 certification allows a person to referee all recreational and competitive youth games. There isn't any age restriction like the Grade 9, but NYSA will not schedule a referee to officiate a game where the players are the same age or older than the referee. (For example, a 14-year old Grade 8 referee would not be scheduled as a center referee for a U-14 game.)

Please note: NYSA requires that a referee be 13 years old or older.
