PYSA's Premier Lakers 2009-2004 boys team for the Spring 2023 MSPSP League
Tryouts held at Click Road Soccer Complex


All of our Lakers teams participate in the Michigan State Premier Soccer Program (MSPSP) each spring, unless a tournament team is decided upon. League play typically consists of a 10-team division, meaning 4-5 away games and 4-5 home games. Schedules are not finalized until late February-early March so exact travel commitments will not be known until that time. Most of our fellow MSPSP participants are located in the SE part of the state (Metro Detroit), however, we have seen teams from Grand Rapids, Lansing, and Bay City/Midland area in recent years.

While it is not possible to fully forecast travel, it is reasonable to expect at least two weekends of travel. We will do our best to play multiple games in a single weekend, but this relies on our opponents being able to host us in that manner.

Beyond MSPSP, Lakers teams will also participate in the Petoskey Fresh Coast Classic June 2-4, 2023.  


Premier teams  will practice two or three times per week in a 60-90 minute session. Exact nights & times will be determined after team formations.


It is important that all players trying out for the Premier team(s) understand that this is a premier soccer program, meaning roster decisions, playing time, and coaching decisions will be merit-based. Equal playing time is not assured. While PYSA does understand there are meaningful costs and travel required for Breakers participation, this still does not guarantee a specific number of minutes for a player during games. The one thing each participant can count on is the opportunity to be fairly evaluated in a competitive environment throughout season. Players experience on the field will correspond with their commitment, performance, and effort.


Ashley Antonishen is a PYSA and Petoskey High School alumni who has returned to the area with a vast amount of soccer coaching experiences. She played collegiate soccer at Northland College (Ashland, WI) and was twice named UMAC All-Conference as a center midfielder. Ashley has a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Secondary Education along with an Athletic Coaching minor from Northland College and a Master’s Degree in General Education from Elmira College. “My coaching philosophy is very holistic, I want my athletes to be prepared physically, tactically, and emotionally. I believe athletics is a great learning environment for character skills and promotes healthy habits that will benefit our athletes long after their playing careers.”   Read more about Ashley Antonishen,
