Spring 2019 Limited Travel League for 3rd Grade players
Submitted by wysa on Wed, 12/19/2018 - 16:40
The 3rd Grade "Limited Travel League" will run from Sat Apr 6th until Sat Jun 15th.
Our 3rd Grade "Limited Travel League" is the transition year as players prepare to play in the older BAYS travel soccer leagues. Our 3rd Grade teams play a restricted travel schedule; traveling to neighboring towns including Westwood, Medfield, Norwood and Canton for away games, hosting those same towns for home games, and also continuing to play some games vs. other WYSA 3rd grade teams. The games are all played on Saturdays, with the girls typically playing in the mornings, while the boys play in the afternoons. This prepares players and families for the Boston Area Youth Soccer (BAYS) league format/schedule that starts with our 4th Grade travel teams.
Home games are primarily played on the fields at Fisher School on Saturday afternoons, with occasional games at Mylod or Ellis depending on field availability.
There will be a Skills Clinics under the supervision on the New England Revolution Coaches on a Wednesday evenings at Stone Fields (near Blackburn Hall); Boys NOW 5.30-6.30pm (was 5-6pm) and Girls NOW 6.30-7.30pm (was 6-7pm). These clinics will run on Apr 10th, (skip school vacation week), 24th, May 1st, 8th, 15th and 22nd..
There is also likely to be one additional team-specific practice each week - organized at the coach's discretion. The focus for 3rd grade players is on learning the nuances of competitive soccer, in a fun, team-oriented environment. While the teams do compete, the emphasis is on education and not on results. Teams are not ability-based, nor are results recorded. The teams are primarily school-based, so that players are playing with friends. There are no tryouts for 3rd Limited Travel teams.
