Smithfield Youth Soccer Association is a 100% volunteer organization. SYSA is a member club with Soccer Rhode Island (SRI). Our mission is for area youth to play soccer regardless of their skill level or playing experience. For our recreational program, we have teams from grade 1 through grade 9, in boys, girls, or coed divisions. For younger players, we offer the Li'l Strikers Program teaching basic skills to introduce them to the game. Both programs run in the fall and Li'l Strikers has a spring program as well. Smithfield Strikers competitive travel teams are for those looking to take their game to the next level and compete indoors over the winter and in the Rhode Island Youth Super Liga (RIYSL) in the spring.
