mays

Registration is now open for spring soccer, grades 3 through high school.  We have several options for players of all abilities and commitment levels, as detailed below.

In-Town Recreational Soccer ($60)

In-town recreational soccer is a more casual atmosphere.  All games are in town, and all teams are made up of kids from Holden and set up to be evenly matched.  Games will be played on Sunday late morning or early afternoon.  There will be one practice per week.  Teams will start practicing as soon as the fields are opened by the town.  This option will be offered to age groups that have the number of players and coaches registered to support the program.

Travel Soccer ($120)

Travel is a more competitive option.  Players and teams are placed at the appropriate levels where they can be challenged but not overmatched.  Teams play against nearby towns in the Midland Area Youth Soccer League (MAYS).  MAYS has three divisions: D1, D2, and D3.  U12 and up have playoffs.  Games are on Saturday (except high school, which plays on Sunday).  Travel teams will have one practice per week and will start practicing after February vacation.  We will hold assessments for all registered travel players some time in November.

In-Town and Travel ($140)

This is for the player who want the competitiveness of travel but also like to play with and against their friends in a more casual setting.
Players will have at least two practices during the week (one with travel and one with rec).  They will play games on Saturday and Sunday.

Optional Winter Training ($40)

Additional training for those interested will be held from the beginning of January until February vacation.  Most of these sessions will be Friday nights or Sunday afternoons.  We won’t know the day or time of the training until late December.  If you register for winter training but end up having a conflict, you will receive a full refund.  Winter training is separate from the spring season.

Optional Supplemental Training (Starting at $60)

For kids in Grade 1 and up who LOVE to practice and improve, we offer our Turbo Training program.  The program provides players with high repetitions of technical skills (the key to individual development).  Sessions are 45 minutes and are available on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Players can sign up for 1-3 nights per week and attend whichever night(s) work best for them.  If your child does not love practicing, we do not recommend this program.  Refer to the Turbo Training page for more details.

Pre-K through Grade 2

Pre-k through second grade registration will open in January.
