Therefore, we have taken measures to tailor our content and offerings to help protect an individual’s privacy.

Our Commitment to Security

SYL has implemented physical, electronic and managerial processes to safeguard the privacy of the information it obtains. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We will retain your personal information for the length of time needed to fulfill the purposes outlined in this privacy policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Please note, however, that sylsoccer.com website and the player, coach, and manager registrations are all performed by Sport Ngin.  SYL does not control the information that Sport Ngin collects (aside from the registration questions) or how Sport Ngin distributes such information.  Please visit and review the Sport Ngin Privacy Policy and the Sport Ngin Terms of Use

Advice to Children and Parents

We strongly advise children to get their parent(s) or guardian(s) to review any information they intend to transmit and get their permission before submitting any kind of personal data to anyone over the Internet. We urge parents to repeatedly discuss with their children the danger of giving personal information to anyone (online or in person) whom they don't personally know. We also encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children monitoring and reviewing their children’s online activity. As a policy, no person under the age of 13 is permitted to register directly to receive SYL’s electronic communications.

What personal information do we collect for our electronic database?
