Grades 3-8 will play in the Bay Area Youth Soccer league - www.bays.org. Under normal circumstances, spring evaluations would be used to form two even competitive teams in Grades 3 & 4; the other teams in these grades would be as balanced as possible. In grades 5-8, teams will be leveled (placements based on external and coach evaluations). Games on Saturdays (5 home and 5 away games), weekday practices, fall and spring.

In the past, player evaluations were held in June for 3rd through 8th grades for placement on appropriate teams. U16 and U18 opportunities are available in the spring for high school players. These evaluations are run by a third party (Steel Soccer) and those evaluation results, along with coach evaluations from the players' prior K2+ and Travel Coaches are used to determine placement. Travel coaches are expected to hold a Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association G & F license. Skills clinics will be offered for several weeks each season by Steel Soccer professional coaches.
- For Fall 2020 only, due to COVID 19 health and safety guidelines, we will only hold evaluations for rising 3rd graders that register for the Travel program. The other grades will be placed on teams based on previous evaluations (external and coach input). Grade 3 evaluations will be held Aug 17 & 18 and Aug 24 & 25 in the evenings. Players will be expected to make any 2 of these 4 sessions. More details about evaluations will be forthcoming as health and safety guidelines evolve. We will follow Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association (www.mayouthsoccer.org) guidelines in terms of playing conditions, leagues, and safety concerns for Fall 2020.
