Winter Indoor Travel

This is a competitive environment, with players selected for teams through tryouts or other means. Indoor teams play from November to April based on schedules prepared by the facility. Expenses are based on team fees, equipment needs, uniform purchase and possibly insurance. The facility cost per player is determined by dividing the total team cost by the number of players. Each team member must also purchase a uniform. Facilities generally run the season with either two sessions of 10 games or three sessions of seven games.

Spring Travel

NYS is affiliated with the South Coast Soccer League (SCSL), which covers all of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket as well as towns from Norton to Fall River and New Bedford. This is a competitive travel league, with teams from U8 through U18. Some age groups have Division 1 and Division 2 teams. Teams are selected through tryouts or other means and placement is not guaranteed. Cost is determined by SCSL team registration fees, referee payments, uniform and equipment needs. Participation fees are reviewed each year to cover NYS costs. The eight game season starts in early April and runs through early June. Games are played on Saturday and Sunday.
