Fairbanks Youth Soccer Association



The Summer 2020 season has come to an end! We hope that those families in our extended soccer community have had some enjoyable experiences these last couple months, regardless of whether they chose to participate in the season. We look forward to seeing everyone again at some point in the future!

At this time, there are no outdoor programs scheduled for this fall. Additionally, with the current COVID-19 situation impacting the ability for user groups such as FYSA to rent school gyms through the FNSB School District, at this time there is no indoor season registration available as we do not know what we can offer, when we would be able to offer it, how many players we can take or how much it would cost to sign up. As things evolve with the school district gym rentals or if other venues become available for FYSA to reserve, we look forward to updating our members about what is next for soccer in Fairbanks.

Our support goes out to the many families, including our Executive Director, who are adjusting to new realities and logistics for schooling at home, childcare, etc. FYSA staff will still be working behind the scenes during this time. As such, our office will be closed for regular hours or foot traffic for a little while this fall. However, we are still available by email or phone (leave us a message or call/text the after-hours number for any 'soccer emergencies!'). We will also be available by appointment for any in-person business with FYSA members wishing to stop by. Just contact us to set something up and we'll be happy to assist however we can.

Thank you for your understanding and support while we await the opportunity to provide our next season or other soccer opportunities.

About Fairbanks Youth Soccer Association

Fairbanks Youth Soccer Association (FYSA) is a not-for-profit Alaskan Organization, allowing tax deductible donations and contributions to the fullest extent of the law.

FYSA is organized to provide nonprofit, public, educational soccer development, competition, coaching licensing and training sessions, and player clinics. Players shall be registered and affiliated with the United States Soccer Federation (USSF). This registration provides limited liability insurance as well as secondary medical insurance for our programs and participants. FYSA elected leadership is comprised of a dedicated volunteer Board of Directors. The organization currently has a staff of one full-time Executive Director and various part-time staff throughout the year serving in roles such as referees, field crew workers, office staff, etc.

The Fairbanks Youth Soccer Association has two soccer field complexes, the Wilbur Street Soccer Complex, and South Davis Park, conveniently located directly across the street. These summer facilities are the property of the Fairbanks North Star Borough, leased to FYSA to manage and maintain. Our grass complexes are maintained each year entirely within our own program budgets, without any subsidies from taxpayers, the city or borough. In other words, our membership is what makes the incredible field complex possible. Winter programs take place indoors, inside school gyms rented from the FNSBSD.
