Late Registration and Waitlist for Fall

The deadline to register for the fall season was June 24th and as of June 25th the waitlist and late fees apply.  To ensure placement, please register your players as soon as possible.

Milton Youth Soccer is a volunteer-led, non-profit community soccer program for youth players in Milton to learn the skills of soccer, enjoy the commitment and camaraderie of a team, and develop a love of the sport. We offer programs in both fall and spring seasons for PRE-K (Age s 3-5); K-2+ LEAGUE (Grades K-3); TRAVEL LEAGUE (Grades 3-8); and TOPSoccer LEAGUE (athletes with special needs).

PRE-K: Milton’s Pre-K program introduces kids to soccer through group activities that blend social play, fun and the basic skills of soccer. This program is open to kids ages 3 - 5 and normally runs in the Fall & Spring. The kids are engaged in fun themed sessions conducted by professional soccer instructors. The sessions focus on learning fundamentals of dribbling, passing and shooting in a fun environment while being a bit silly. There are no teams involved.  Registration for the Pre-K program will open at the same time as Travel and K-2+ Programs and typically can accommodate ~300 players in a season. Any players above the limit will be placed on a wait list.  While we don ’t need parent v olunteer coaches at this a ge, please plan to volunteer coach when your kids enter the K-2+ program.  When registering, please notate which session (AM/PM/NP (No Preference)) you might be interested in.  Please know that this does not automatically guarantee session placement due to the large player population. 

K-2+ LEAGUE:  The K-2+ program focuses on teaching kids the fundamentals of soccer through a graduated approach based on age/capabilities. This program is open to kids in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. This program runs on Saturdays or Sundays for 75 minutes. Players are assigned to teams with parent volunteer coaches. A professional coach also attends each session to support parent volunteers. Each week features a skills session followed by a controlled game. K-2+ is open to all Milton residents and students at any Milton school. You may submit one player or coach request (only considered for on-time registrations.) All games are played in Milt on.  

TRAVEL LEAGUE: Our Travel League offers players in Grades 3-8 an opportunity to advance skills and compete against teams from other towns in the BAYS League. Travel League is open to all Milton residents and students at any Milton school.Games are held on Saturdays and include 5 home and 5 away games (typically within 1-hr drive.) Volunteer parent coaches host team practices. Teams are formed based on evaluation scores with the goal of grouping players of similar skill and ability levels. (Age group evaluations will be held each Spring. Coaches are expected to submit evaluations following each season.) Each team is then placed into an appropriately competitive secti on in the BAYS league.  YOU MUST R EGISTER ON TIME TO GUARANT EE A SPOT ON A TRAVEL TEAM.

TOPSoccer LEAGUE: US Youth Soccer TOPSoccer is an Outreach Soccer Program for athletes with intellectual, emotional and or physical disabilities.  The program strives to provide soccer opportunities for players to develop at their own pace in a safe, fun and supportive/inclusive environment.  TOPSoccer is played Sunday afternoons.

Click on “Register” to sign up online.  The deadline to register is June 24th (on June 25th waitlist and late fees apply).

TOPSoccer: That's a Wrap!

Coach Responsibilities

Hello coaches!  We wanted to take a moment to remind and highlight some of the Administrative components of coaching. These activities are critical to the successful management of your team and our BAYS league.

Please take a moment to review this linked article.  The information found there has also been emailed out to all of our coaches.



BAYS is launching their RESPECT Campaign and are asking that the BAYS community join together to help make the youth soccer experience the best it can be for all of our players, coaches, referees, clubs, parents, and fans.

Learn more about the BAYS RESPECT Campaign here and on the BAYS website.

No Room for Racism

No Room for Racism

Milton Soccer is committed to increasing player, coach, and board member diversity so that the program demographics accurately reflect that of our town. As an organization we stand behind and welcome all who wish to participate in Milton Soccer. By launching our ”No Room for Racism”  campaign, we want to show support for the families of Milton and renounce any racism they may have experienced in our town, schools, and sports. As a board we are making available No Room for Racism practice jerseys, beanies, and face masks that may be purchased in our Team Shop (available soon) and the voluntary wearing of these items.

We will also be displaying No Room for Racism banners at Milton Soccer Fields. We believe that the organization should be welcoming and actively anti-racist. Staying silent, especially now, shows acceptance of the status quo and our organization is committed to moving forward to a more welcoming and racially diverse program.

Milton soccer does not condone discrimination or bullying in any form. Practice jerseys, beanies, and masks will be available to parents who would like to purchase them, and it is a parental choice to have a player wear them.

Please click here if you would like to view and/or purchase these items from the store.  Thanks!
