General Information

Players in grades 3 and above are considered ‘travel’. This corresponds to the 10U, 12U, 14U 17U and 19U age groups.

Travel leagues play their games against opponents from other town programs that are also members of Midland Area Youth Soccer (MAYS).Unlike The majority of these games are played within about a 20 minute drive of Auburn, though a few of the member towns are further away.

Unlike the in-town age groups (4U, 5U 6U and 8U), travel divisions are governed by MAYS and Massachusetts Youth Soccer.
