At the Third Grade level, separate boys and girls Travel Teams compete against teams from other Boston Area Youth Soccer (BAYS) League towns on 6, 8 or 11 a-side teams depending on the age level. Trained referees replace parents as the on-field arbiters.
Travel team rosters are developed based on age. Teams in grades 3 through 6 are divided into balanced teams with the help of parents and coaches. Teams in grades 7 and 8 are selected based on yearly tryouts held at the conclusion of the spring season. Everyone that registers on time will be placed on a team in all grades.
