3rd Grade Limited Travel Program - Fall 2020 plans

The Fall 2020 3rd Grade "Limited Travel Program" is expected to play games on Saturdays from Sat Sep 12th until Sat Nov 14th.

Weekly Games
Our 3rd Grade "Limited Travel Program" is the transition year as players prepare to play in the older BAYS travel soccer leagues. Our 3rd Grade teams play a restricted travel 'game schedule' on Saturdays; 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. 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.

Weekly Practices
*There will be a weekly Skills Clinics (under the supervision of professional coaches) held on Wednesday evenings at Fisher;

3rd Grade; Wednesdays (Aug 26th, Sep 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd and Sep 30th)
Girls 5-6pm
Boys 6-7pm

*There may also be one additional midweek team practice each week - organized at the coach's discretion.

Developmental Structure
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.
