WHY ARE REGISTRATIONS SO EARLY?
This is a great question and one that has been prominent in our seasonal surveys that we send out at the end of each season (WAIT!! you didn't respond to our survey? Please look for it at the end of every season). These articles are based on your input and we want to hear from you!!
Ok, so why are registrations so early and why is it important? Generally speaking, it is mostly dependent on getting permits for use from the County.
While we just opened registrations for summer programs, in less than a month (May 1 to be exact), we will be opening registrations for our fall sports. While this may seem ridiculous, our deadline to the County to request fields/gyms for the fall is June 1. A short time for our sports volunteers determine what the season will look like, how many fields/gyms we will need, etc.
SYA truly and seriously appreciates those of you that register early. We even offer discounts in some sports to help encourage that effort. We also are trying to catch everyone before summer vacations start up!
