Newburyport Youth Soccer Association

NYSA is a non-profit athletic community with a longstanding presence in Newburyport, MA and surrounding towns. Founded in 1980, NYSA has provided thousands of young athletes the opportunity to play and enjoy the game of soccer. NYSA’s mission is to foster the five core values in our players and families: 


Love of Sport

Lifelong Athletes

Character Development




Our all-volunteer board members and coaches are committed to supporting our youth in becoming thoughtful, respectful, healthy, competitive, and committed individuals with a strong sense of self, as well as community. We hope our players will apply these social and physical skills not only on the soccer field, but in any of their life-long endeavors of sports, academics, and personal development.

Spring 2023 Timeline


Registration Closes for U12/U14 on January 16th and Tots-U10 on March 7th. 

Teams will be released for U12 and U14 in early March and for U6, U8, U10 in mid-late March. 

First practice- week of April 3rd

First Game- April 8th. Passover begins April 6th and Easter is April 9th. Starting the week before is risky as the fields will likely be too soft to play on. The dates aren't ideal, and these are tentative. 

Tots Begins- April 25th and run for 6 weeks. 1 weather related make up is allowed. 

Memorial Day Weekend- No games

Last Game- June 3rd for U12/U14 and June 10th for Tots-U10. Teams in U12 and U14 could qualify for playoffs which will take place throughout the remainder of June.
