BAYS travel soccer for grades 9 to 12 program is offered in Spring only and gives high school age players an opportunity to continue playing with Needham Soccer Club even if they participate in high school sports during the winter season. Players are not required to tryout and are placed on teams using the club guidelines including input from former coaches. Games are held on Sunday afternoons so as not to conflict with high school sports schedules. Most teams in this age group do not practice, but some coaches may offer training a few times during the season.
