BAYS Travel

The Needham Soccer Club is a member of the BAYS League. BAYS currently has 55 member towns and is one of the ‘town’ leagues recognized by Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association.

BAYS is a competitive travel program with Needham Soccer Club teams traveling to other towns on Saturdays (grades  4 – 8). Two weekday training sessions and a Saturday game (5 home games in Needham and 5 away games).   Tryouts are held in May for travel teams, requiring commitment for both fall & spring seasons.   Players in grades 9 – 12 play on Sundays in spring only league and do not tryout.

Expectations: While we have two separate registration periods in NSC, players selected to a travel team in June would be expected to stay with the program for the full year and commit to the fall & spring seasons.  Players are expected to attend practices twice a week as well as 10 games in fall and 10 games in spring.
