YYSL uses fields at Cousler Park, Dallastown Area elementary schools, and York Township—our field usage changes from season to season based on availability and the size of our league. During registration, you can indicate your practice location preference; the Division Commissioners strive to accommodate this request first. Check out the Fields page for more information.
Team practices are generally one hour each week in the 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. window.

All YYSL coaches are volunteers. Some coaches have been with us for many seasons, while others are just getting started. As our league expands and veteran coaches move up or retire, new volunteers will be needed. YYSL has opportunities for both head coach and assistant coach positions. If you are interested or have questions, please contact the League Registrar.
