The spring season includes six games running from April 13 to May 18. All games and practices are held at the KYSO fields, next to Kaneland High School in Maple Park.

Registration is open to boys and girls ages 4 to 17. Registration fees are $85 for the first child, $65 for each additional child and include a soccer jersey, shorts, socks, end of season trophies and certified referees.

A refundable $20 volunteer fee is added to the first child's registration to help offset league costs. Refunds are available by coaching, participating on the KYSO board, or helping with various roles during the season. Email for details.

KYSO provides TOPSoccer for special needs players in partnership with U.S. Youth Soccer. TOPSoccer (The Outreach Program for Soccer) is a national soccer program created to train young people with disabilities in a caring coaching environment.

The program is generally carried out by volunteers at the local level, with financial support from U.S. Youth Soccer and local youth soccer organization such as KYSO.

Kaneland Youth Soccer Organization provides Big Rock, Elburn, Hinckley, Kaneville, Maple Park, Sugar Grove, and Virgil youth with recreational and competitive travel soccer opportunities.

It has approximately 50 recreational soccer teams for boys and girls ages 4-14 (U-5-U-14) and a small but growing number of travel teams. It is a 501(c)(3) corporation.

The KYSO recreational program teaches soccer through the use of smaller teams and fields, maximizing participation by all. The program also allows young players to learn and enjoy soccer in a positive and fun environment, usually with their neighbors in the community and with their friends from school.
