As part of the Little Tikes Clinic, players participate in approx. 25 minutes of fun soccer-related drills and activities, led by volunteer parent coaches and older youth players. Following the games/drills portion, players will play a scrimmage for approx. 15-20 minutes.
The Pre-K program is the first introduction to soccer for the majority of TYS players. Players receive a TYSL T-Shirt courtesy of Tewksbury Youth Soccer.
The focus of each session is to learn basic soccer skills, rules, and fundamental athletic movements by playing fun soccer games. TYSL cannot do it without our parent and teenage volunteers. Please consider volunteering your time to help keep our kids focused and engaged.
The Tewksbury Youth Soccer League (TYSL) Travel Teams participate in the Middlesex Youth Soccer League (MYSL).
Each team will play games both at the TYSL Home Fields located at the Frasca Soccer Complex and away games at surrounding towns with soccer programs that are also members of the MYSL. MYSL is made up of teams from 19 towns and cities within Middlesex County. Games can be as far away as Everett or Charlestown and as close as Wilmington or Lowell.
There are two soccer seasons that comprise a "soccer year"; a fall season (August-November) followed by a spring season (March-June). The fall season generally consists of 8-10 games and there are no playoffs at the end of the season as it is considered a developmental season. The spring season is considered a competitive season. It consists of 8-10 games and MYSL-sponsored playoffs/post-season tournaments for the top teams.
Player Placement Process
Tryouts are held in May/June for Grades 3-8 to assign rosters for the next Fall and Spring season. For Grades 9-12, tryouts are held in October/November for the Spring season. Grades 9-12 only play in the Spring season. Times and dates are posted on the TYSL website and broadcast through local and social media.
