Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc. started as an informal collection of clubs that joined together to become a registered non-profit corporation in 1984. In 1996 the organization became more structured with the formation of five permanent clubs/associations, each with responsibility for a geographical area or zone established under the By-laws of SYSI. These member clubs are Saskatoon United Soccer Club, Hollandia International Soccer Club, Aurora Soccer Club, Lakewood Soccer Association, and Eastside Youth Soccer Association.

The new organizational structure gave the Saskatoon youth soccer community the stability it needed to participate in the construction of the first dedicated soccer facility in Saskatchewan, the Saskatoon Kinsmen Henk Ruys Soccer Centre. More recently it played a key role in the creation of the SaskTel Sports Centre. The SaskTel Sports Centre features a full-size, indoor artificial turf pitch with two smaller indoor pitches, and also includes two lighted, outdoor artificial turf pitches. The two facilities house a variety of youth and mini soccer leagues, practices, jamborees, tournaments, and provincials throughout the year.
Saskatoon Youth Soccer Inc. acknowledges Treaty 6 territory—the ancestral and traditional territory of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Nakota Sioux, as well as the Métis. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for generations. We are grateful for the traditional Knowledge Keepers and Elders who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We recognize the land as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we are greatfully playing on in growing the beautiful game.
