PROGRAM INFORMATION

The Recreational Program is designed for everyone who wants to play soccer. This program forms its teams through the use of the MSA rules and regulations. This form of team selection properly weights teams based off of actual participants ages and playing experience in an effort to create a level playing field for teams formed.   HYSA partners with the City of Hattiesburg's Parks and Recreation Department to offer a quality recreational program for the City of Hattiesburg.

For a child to play in the 2021 Fall Rec program they need to be at least 3 years old in the 2021 calendar year and no older than 15  years old in the 2021 calendar year.  What age division a child is put in depends on the year he/she was born.  All games for the U4-U10 are played at the HYSA Tatum Park Facility.  Most games for the U12 -U16 age groups are played at Tatum.  Games will start the middle to end of September with the season concluding in the beginning to middle of November. 

 All players will receive a jersey from HYSA. You will need to provide soccer cleats, shin guards, black soccer socks, and black shorts.                        

All of our Recreational Coaches are parent volunteers.  We always need coaches, so please consider being a coach for your child's team.  We can keep the cost of this program low because of our wonderful volunteer parent coaches!! 

If you are interested in coaching please mark that on the registration form when asked.

  • NOTE:  In the fall, U13-U16 primarily does training  which includes scrimmaging among themselves.  This fall there is a league that we may be able to take part in where we will have a couple of games for this age group to take part in.  This would require some travel to the Gulfport area. We generally do not have enough players to create several teams in this age group.

U8 Rec 5v5 Build Out Line

The build out line promotes playing the ball out of the back in a less pressured setting.

When the goalkeeper has the ball, either during play (from the opponent) or from a goal kick, the opposing team must move behind the build out line until the ball is put into play.

Once the opposing team is behind the build out line, the goalkeeper can pass, throw or roll the ball into play (punting is not allowed).

After the ball is put into play by the goalkeeper, the opposing team can cross the build out line and play resumes as normal.

If a goalkeeper punts the ball, an indirect free kick should be awarded to the opposing team from the spot of the offense.

If the punt occurs within the goal area, the indirect free kick should be taken on the goal area line parallel to the goal line at the nearest point to where the infringement occurred.

Players will not be penalized for an offside offense in U8 5v5.
