An announcement was made at the Annual General Meeting on September 30, 2019 that the League would be adopting a standard naming convention for all teams for the 2020 Play Season. The conventions is as follows:
Club Name, Club Nickname, Birth Year, Gender, Descriptor
For example, if your club is based in the Town of Xanadu and is know as the Xanadu Volcanos, the U12 Boys team would be named as follows:
Xanadu (Club Name), Volcanos (Club Nickname), 2008 (Birth Year), B (Gender-Boys), Lava Rocks (Descriptor)
Xanadu Volcanos 2008B Lava Rocks
If you have already entered your teams in RosterPro with NYSWYSA and they do not match this format, please go back in an modify the team names. Thank you for your cooperation!
The Board of Directors petitioned the New York State West Youth Soccer Association to consider a modification to the USYSA Player Development Intitiatives with respect to roster sizes. The League's request was granted and beginning with the 2020 Play Year the following limits will be in effect:
U8-U10 Team Roster 16 Game Day Roster 13
U11-U12 Team Roster 18 Game Day Roster 16
U13-U19 Team Roster 22 Game Day Roster 18
The B&WNYJSL Board of Directors hopes that the increased team roster sizes at U8 through U12 will give clubs the flexibility they need in properly forming competitive teams with an eye to future needs. If you have any questions please contact League administration.
