TAYSA’s In-Town Program

Townsend Ashby Youth Soccer Association’s In-Town Program is open and ready for player registrations. Our in-town program provides fun opportunities for learning through instruction, drills and games, for players ages three through eight (grade 2).  We have a Travel Program for players in grades 3 and older who are ready for the next level of soccer play and instruction. 

Players must wear shin guards with soccer socks over them. All players will be provided with a team shirt.

 in-town program plays games on Saturdays in the fall and spring seasons. In the fall, the in-town program typically starts mid-September and plays until early November. In the spring, the in-town program takes place from April-June (once the snow melts).

Volunteer coaches are vital to the success of these programs – TAYSA provides guidance, support and resources.
