2018 Fall Season Information
Our 2018 Fall Season Recruitment and Registration Event will be on July 20th from 4:00 - 5:30 pm at the Goodfellow Bros. Inc. Athletic Field at Parker Lower School. Coaches will be there to run the players through a few drills and lead a scrimmage. This will give our coaches an opportunity to test player skill levels for team placement. I realize many of you may be traveling at this time and will not be able to attend this event. If you are interested in joining us this season but will NOT be able to attend, please email me and I will add your player to a tentative list. We will do their skill test once practices start. About a week or so after the event you will be contacted by a coach. If additional player assessments are necessary, they will be scheduled at this time.
Each season, new and returning players must fill out the following forms which you can find in the links below.
Please bring these completed forms to the event and have your player check in at the desk before heading out to the field.
This Fall season will begin with the first games on August 25th and playoffs on the weekend of November 11 & 12th. I will be submitting our team reservations to the BIHYSA League on August 1st. The season schedule should be posted on August 18th at www.bihysa.com. You will also find your team standings here during the season. With the above dates in mind, please look over your schedules. It will be imperative that your player be at each practice and game on time. This is a travelling league with games in Kona, Hilo, Keaau, Puna and Waimea. We are looking for committed players. Keep in mind that if your player misses a game it is unfair to the team as they will have to play that much harder and possibly not have a substitute. I understand kids play multiple sports. Please be honest with your coaches about the availability of your players.
PBSC fees for this season are as follows: training fee and club dues are $150 per player. We will still offer the sibling discount of $25, so $125 for each additional sibling. Uniforms are $35 each. All checks will be made payable to Parker School.
Once your player has been assigned a team you will register them with the Big Island HYSA League online. Go to www.bihysa.com and click on Electronic Player Registration. This is where you will pay the annual League membership of $45. If you haven’t done so already, you will need to create an account. You will also need to upload a current headshot photo and birth certificate. Electronic Player Registration directions are also available to review.
The Parker Bulls Soccer Club (PBSC) was formed in 2011 to provide a player development program for youth soccer players in the Waimea community. The club is an extension of Parker School but is open to all players, regardless of their school affiliation. The club is looking for motivated players who aspire to improve both their individual skills and knowledge of the game as they progress through our program, which incorporates elements of the U.S. Soccer Federation’s Youth Development curriculum and a number of professional youth development programs.
PBSC competes in the Big Island Chapter of the Hawai’i Youth Soccer Association (BI-HYSA; www.bihysa.com). BI-HYSA offers seasons in the fall (September-November) and spring (January-May) each year. We currently offer teams in U8, U10, U12 and U14 age divisions.

hysa vs. ayso
HYSA vs. AYSO: By definition, all youth soccer is recreational, but when it comes to HYSA and AYSO, there are marked differences. AYSO is a fantastic organization, designed to provide a venue for kids to experience the game of soccer. HYSA is a much more involved experience, which requires a higher level of commitment from players and their families. Training sessions are designed to prepare our players and teams for the highly competitive environment found in league play. Both organizations have a lot to offer youth soccer players, so we encourage families to choose a program that best fits your level of interest.
