2019 Fall Season Information
It’s that time of year again…our 2019 Fall Season Recruitment and Registration Event will be held on July 18 and 19 from 4:00-6:00 pm at the Goodfellow Bros. Inc. Athletic Field at Parker Lower School. July 18 will be for players in the 10U and 12U divisions (birth years 2008-2011) and July 19 will be for players in the 14U, 16U and 19U divisions (birth years 2002-2007).
Coaches will run the players through a warm-up, a few drills, and a scrimmage. This will give our coaches an opportunity to assess player skill levels for team placement. I realize many of you may be traveling at this time and will not be able to attend the 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 our tentative player list. We will need to set up another day to have them assessed. 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.
The Fall season will begin with the first games on August 24 and playoffs on the weekend of November 9-10. I will be submitting our team reservations to the BIHYSA League on July 31. The season schedule should be posted on August 18 at www.bihysa.com. You will also find your team schedule and standings here during the season.
With the above dates in mind, please look over your schedules. It is expected that your player will be at each practice and game on time. This is a traveling league with games in Kona, Hilo, Keaau, Puna, and Waimea. We are looking for committed players. Keep in mind, if your player misses a game, it is unfair to their 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 the Fall 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. I have attached the Player Information, Parent Code of Conduct and the Player Parent Promise forms. Please bring these completed forms to the event and have your player check in at the desk before heading out to the field.
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 $50. If you haven’t done so already, you will need to create an account. Be sure to confirm a current headshot photo and birth certificate are uploaded to your player’s profile. They will not be rostered without these. I have attached the directions.
There is still time to sign up for our British Soccer Camp for the weeks of July 22-26 and July 29-August 2. Information and registration are available here.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Parker Bulls Soccer Club
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.

Sizing information will be taken at registration. A practice shirt will be distributed to each player once sizing is received. There will be more practice shirts available for purchase if desired. Uniforms will be purchased by players and can be used for multiple seasons. Uniforms are currently priced at $35. We strive to give you the best quality and price combined.

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.
