Our Youth Development Program (also known as YDA) has two seasons. One in Fall (from late August to mid-October) and one in Spring (from late March to late May). This program is for kids aged U6, U8 and U10 (roughly 5 to 9 year olds) and is mainly focused on development and fun, not competition. This program is co-ed.
Our U9/U10 Program and the our U11/U12 are transitional programs and also have spring and a fall seasons. It is for kids aged U9 to U12 and is designed to be the bridge between the YDP and the more competitive High School Prep League/Club Programs offered by BYSL. Players travel up and down the Snake River Valley playing against other U9 to U12 kids.
Our High School Prep League is a fall only program. It is for 6th graders (born in 2007), 7th graders, 8th graders, and 9th graders who do not make their High School team, but who wish to continue playing soccer at a more competitive level than other recreational opporunities that are available. Players are assigned to teams based on where they attend (or would attend) public middle school. Teams travel up and down the Snake River Valley for games. Standings are kept and the teams compete in a season end tournament.
Our Club Program is the Competitive program for BYSL in Idaho Falls. Teams may participate in tournaments both in Idaho and elsewhere. Teams also participate in the "Snake River League" which runs from early April to late May. (High school aged players are encouraged to play for their High School team during the fall, which is not affiliated with or operated by BYSL).
