About Travel (Grades 3-6)
Youth Soccer Travel Teams are offered in both Spring and Fall, the Travel program is for children in grades 3-6 and is composed of four divisions for each gender: Grade 3, Grade 4, Grade 5 and Grade 6.
The Travel program consists of
Travel divisions are grade-based. WYS travel teams play in the BAYS league. BAYS has grade-based divisions for 2022/2023. What does this mean? Simply this: player grade=player division. For example, a girl player currently in grade 3 will be in the Girls Grade 3 Division.
Early bird registration for all grades ends June 16th, 2022 at midnight. All players must be registered and paid in full to play. After June 16th the price will increase by $25.
Registration for all grades closes August 20th, 2022 at midnight. Registrations beyond this date require pending WYS board approval and openings on a team.
The date of the first game of the Fall 2022 season is TBD.
In an ideal world, every player who plays in the Fall would also play in the Spring and no changes would need to be made to any team from the Fall. Unfortunately the number of players that play in the Spring is generally fewer than the previous Fall. For this reason, we sometimes have to adjust the number of teams.
The number of teams is based on the total number of players per age group, then teams are created as evenly as possible. For example, if one Fall team has 7 players in Spring and one has 13 players in Spring, we may need to move 2-3 players to make the teams more even.
The players that are moved either up or down is generally based on the coach’s player evaluations from Fall since they spent a considerable amount of time with players. The scores from Challenger player evaluations are also considered.
Fielding teams with too few players or too many players is not in anybody’s interest, especially for the young players. It is always a very difficult decision to move players but experience shows it is important to make the teams as evenly spread as possible to benefit ALL players.
