Travel Program Information

Our teams, ranging from Grade 3 to Grade 10, play in the Essex County Youth Soccer Association league.  Usually half a team’s games are home games and the other half are played on the road throughout Essex County.  Our Travel program differs from Spring to Fall.  The Spring is our principal travel program.  Selection criteria is detailed in the MYSA-Travel-Program-Guidelines-and-Procedures.  (Note that travel guidelines and procedures are from 2015 and are in the process of being updated.)

Selection – Teams are constructed based on multiple factors, including performance during a required tryout, coaches’ evaluations, selection committee observations and attendance during the current season.  (Players are not required to have participated the previous season to be eligible for a travel team the next season.)

Spring Travel – All G8 (Grades 7 & 8) and G6 players participate on Travel teams in the Spring.  There are no intramural programs for these age groups.  A small number of boys and girls (typically 35-40) play G4 Spring Travel.  G4 players who do not receive an invitation for travel are strongly encouraged to play intramural.   G2 players “aging up” to G4 in the spring are ineligible to play travel in their first season.  Tryouts for Spring Travel are held the preceding Fall, usually in mid- to late-October.

Fall Travel – The Fall program is typically smaller.  The G8 program will be travel only (no Intramural).  G6 will have both Travel and Intramural programs.  G4 only offers Intramural in the Fall (for Fall 2017 we are piloting a limited travel program consisting of two teams per gender).  Players who play Fall Travel are encouraged to also play Fall Intramural to further develop their skills, though it is not required.  Tryouts are held in the end of the Spring season (typically in mid- to late-May).  Note that in the fall season (not the spring), children who are the top of the G4 group “age up” to G6, and those at the top of G6 “age up” to G8.

MYSA expects a commitment from all players during the travel season.  Attendance at 100% of games and 80% of practices is required.  Please take this into consideration when making a decision on whether to participate.  Travel players have two practices per weeknight, approximately one hour in length, starting at 5:30 or later.  One game is held each weekend.
