Welcome to the Thruway Soccer League

Welcome to the home of the Thruway Soccer League, the place for premier teams to play soccer in central and western New York state.

Why play in the Thruway League?

  • The Thruway League is the only true promotion/relegation premier league in New York West.
  • The Thruway League is a qualifying league for the US Youth Soccer National Championship Series for New York State West Youth Soccer.
  • The Thruway League can be a qualifying league for the US Youth Soccer National Chamionship Series for Eastern NY teams, however they need to contact the Eastern NY Youth Soccer office with a written request asking for permission to use the Thruway League as their Cup qualifying league. 
2018 Season to be Open for Team Applications - NOVEMBER 15th, 2017

The Executive Committee of the Thruway Soccer League met on September 14th and announces the following for the coming 2018 seaon:

  • Team applications will open on November 15th, 2017 and close on January 5th, 2018
  • Team acceptance and division placement will be announced no later than January 15th, 2018
  • Roster freeze will occur on February 15th.  Teams must be 50%+1 age appropriate or you will not be permitted to schedule.
  • Division scheduling to start by March 1, 2018
  • Game play to start by April 1, 2018

In other changes for the 2018 season, the following will be incorporated into the league policies:

  • Red Card fine for a player send off will increase from $35.00 to $50.00.  All red card incidents will be reviewed by the league board and pending further action.
  • Yellow Cards will now accumulate.  A 4th yellow card issued to a player during the season will now result in a one game suspension and a $50.00 fine.
  • Reschedule Weekend - any games that remain unscheduled by June 17th, 2018 will be scheduled and MUST be played on the weekend of July 7th and 8th, 2018.  Failure to make up unscheduled games on this reschedule weekend could result in no re-entry to the league the following season. Plan your season calendar appropriately.  There will be no excuses accepted to not play make up games on these dates.
