Play for Your School (PFYS)
Fall 2017 Soccer Offering and Team Shop Link
Play for Your School provides Lower School students an athletic experience which promotes fun, play, and healthy competition. This is our sixth year, and we are confident it will be our best yet. Please review the information below and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
We are excited to partner with the Asheville Buncombe Youth Soccer Association (ABYSA) this upcoming season. We are confident their expertise in the field of youth soccer will impact our program in numerous positive ways—those include but are not limited to a stronger coaching curriculum, on-site coaching of coaches, and access to a network of soccer connections in the greater community.
As a point of information, our newly formed relationship with ABYSA is strictly on the recreational side of their programming. Please look for a note the week of August 7-11 which will provide more details on the structure of this relationship. As a teaser, know that our practices will take place on campus right after school and we will still need parent coach volunteers!
As we go to press with the above information, registration for soccer is up and running! All registration takes place online and is handled by ABYSA. We encourage you to sign-up as soon as possible!
To register, please visit the following link:
● Families will log-on and create an account to register for the Fall 2017 Recreation Program.
● CDS families will notice a late registration fee of $10 appears. Please enter the code “ 54023 ” at the Registration Summary page to have this fee waived. (Our relationship with ABYSA was secured after “normal” registration; we are appreciative of their willingness to work with us on this matter.)
● CDS families should indicate—in the special request field—to be placed in the Carolina Day School group.
Many of you have requested athletic identity gear for your child. We are pleased to offer those items via the sporting goods company the athletic department works with. Please know the items listed in our shop meet CDS lower school dress requirements for outerwear and spirit days. Also, note there are no mandatory items to purchase!
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
