Welcome to the Super Y League
What is THE SUPER Y LEAGUE?
National Super Y League provides the opportunity for select players to continue playing at a higher level during the summer, while having the opportunity to qualify for the national Super Y finals in December. Players are evaluated throughout the year and invited based on performance and coaches recommendations to participate in Super Y.
When is the Super Y season? The league runs over the summer with division games typically starting late June and ending by the first week in August.
Who do Super Y teams play? The league play consists of teams in the Midwest division from Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.
Where do Super Y games take place? Most games are played at neutral sites or for teams that within reasonable travel will have home and away games. Play weekends consist of weekends set up at neutral host sites where teams play multiple games over Saturday and Sunday.
The Super Y League confirmed in January 2021 the dates and locations for six neutral site weekends, which will constitute the Midwest Division regular season this summer. The events will take place at four different complexes in Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.
What are program costs & what does it include? 2021 program fee is still being determined. The fee includes between 8-10 league games & 12 practices (2x a week- 1.5 sessions)
What are the travel commitments? A Super Y team can expect to travel out of state a minimum of 2 times (possibly 3) in one season. Michigan & Indiana are the most likely locations (Ohio is also a possibility). Subject to change due to COVID restrictions
Teams Qualifying for National Championships: National championships are held in Tampa, FL in mid-December. Championship week is a 5 day event with qualifying games, finals and additional showcase games for teams not advancing to the finals. Teams qualify based on their standings within their divisions along with the number of spots given to each division. In the 2016 Super Y season Chicago Inferno 2004 ELITE boys team won the National Title! In both 2017 & 2018 Chicago Inferno teams have been SYL Finalists. In 2019, Chicago Inferno 2005 FS boys team placed 2nd in National Title game! Most recently in 2020, three teams were scheduled to compete but event was canceled due to COVID concerns. We look forward to next season and expect more team to be competing at Nationals!
