TYSL traditionally hosts a girls’ and a boys’ tournament the first and third weekends of August. Darlene Wilharm, registrar for TYSL, said the annual tournament will probably be a combined event next year as there weren’t enough sign-ups for a boys tournament this year. Instead, on Aug. 21 TYSL will host a TOPS Soccer Jamboree, a day of competition for youths with disabilities.
