Hopkinton Youth Sports Association
The Hopkinton Youth Sports Association is a volunteer organization whose mission is to provide sports for the youth of Hopkinton in an atmosphere that is positive, instructional and fun. All of the work needed for HYSA to fulfill this mission is carried out by a dedicated core of volunteer members. Without the efforts of these volunteers, HYSA would not be successful. We need your help!
We are asking every family to have at least one parent participate in one of the volunteer activities.
Below is a listing of the volunteer activities, and what they involve. When you complete your child’s registration form each season, please check off one of these categories. If you’ve already registered, please let your coach know you’d like to help. Thank you in advance for your efforts in ensuring HYSA’s continued success in offering a positive and successful sporting experience for your children!
