Lynn Youth Soccer


Travel Soccer

Older players (G3/4 and up) may be interested in playing at a more competitive level.  Children who have played Intramural Soccer are eligible to try out for a position on a Lynn Youth Soccer Travel Team.

Travel soccer is higher level of  soccer. Players are more dedicated to soccer  and have more practice time and competition with teams from other communities in the Essex County Youth Soccer Association. Teams usually practice 2 times a week and play eight games on Saturdays for G3/4,G5/6 and G7/8 groups. Four games are home and four are away, in other towns in Essex County. If players wish to continue their soccer experience onto a high school team, travel soccer is their best bet to progress to the level they will make the team.

The high school age teams play 6 games on Sundays, only in Spring, since most teams consist of high school players who are committed to their school teams. The league does not have a Fall season for these age groups. Teams play only one game on their home field per season.

Teams play a Fall season from early September to early November, and a Spring season beginning in early April to early June. In the Spring only, top teams qualify for playoffs which lead to the Massachusetts Tournament of Champions in late June. G3/4 is non-competitive, records are not kept and there are no playoffs.

If there are more players than spots on Travel Teams, full refunds will be given to players not selected for a team. Registration does not guarantee a spot on a travel team. We will make great effort to place all players on a team. Skill level varies widely in travel soccer, but teams are placed in divisions they are expected to be competitive in.

Teams are selected by the Travel Division of the LYS Board of Directors with input from coaches and third party evaluations. Until the HighSchool age group, every effort is made to place players on their correct soccer age team. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the Travel Division.

Many travel teams enter tournaments on Memorial and Columbus Day weekends at their own cost.

Registration fee for Travel Soccer is $95 per season, Fall and Spring. There is also a separate uniform fee.   The league requires teams to be formed several months prior to the season beginning, which requires early registration for players,  opening midway through the prior season. 

All new players or players moving up in age group need to submit a photo for their ECYSA Player cards.  Please email the photo to [email protected] /

Sorry no refunds after the start of practices, which is 2 weeks prior to the first scheduled game.
