Travel soccer is for children ages 10 through 11. TYSA plays in the Nashoba Valley Youth Soccer League (NVYSL) and plays against teams from other towns. Approximately half of the games will be played in Tyngsboro. The remaining away games will require traveling to other towns. Some of the towns in this league include Pepperell, Groton/Dunstable, Littleton, Stowe, and Fitchburg. For a complete list of towns that participate in NVYSL visit the Organizations list on the NVYSL website. Registration for the Fall Travel program runs from May through June. Registration for the Spring travel program runs from October through December. Specific dates are posted on the TYSA website. The number of teams is based on the number of player registrations for the season. Due to NVYSL's maximum roster sizes we may not be able to place every player on a team. In this situation TYSA will notify players. Any players not placed on teams due to roster size will receive a full refund.
Format is 8v8 (7 field players and a keeper)
(2) 30 minute halves

There is a “NCUP” tournament in the spring to determine the division winner.
Division winners qualify to go to the Massachusetts Tournament of Champions (MTOC).
Scores are kept and are reported on the NVYSL site.

The U12 program is focused on continuing player development. Players will be placed on teams based on the results of player assessments and coach’s recommendations.
