Players in Age Groups U10 - U19 participate in the Essex County travel league. Games are played against teams from other Essex County cities and towns, and four games of each regular season will be played in other cities or towns. Travel players in Age Groups U10-U14 are required to attend a Try-Out session each spring to determine their appropriate team placement. Only players who participate in Try-Outs will be considered for Division I and II teams.
Salem Youth Soccer will provide a jersey to each player at the start of the fall season for their use. These jerseys will be used for both Fall and Spring seasons. The jersey may be worn during in season activities such as tournaments, SYS approved fundraising, and SYS games. Lost or damaged jerseys can be replaced for a fee. Replacement jerseys can be ordered through our Online Store.
U10 and U12 players use a size 4 soccer ball and U14 players and older use a size 5 soccer ball. Each player must supply his or her own ball.
