The Jefferson Youth Soccer Club offers two divisions (Recreation and Travel). Travel is more competitive and requires a greater commitment to the sport. The season runs September-June of the following year, with a break December-March.

Prospective youth travel soccer players born from 2005-2012 are eligible for the U9-U15 teams. Tryouts are at Berkshire Valley Field on Saturday morning, May 11 (rain date May 18):

09:00-10:00 – Birth years 2010, 2011, 2012
10:15-11:15 – Birth Years 2008, 2009
11:30-12:30 – Birth Years 2005, 2006, 2007 (if needed)

Girls born in 2007 and 2008 will be evaluated at a team practice on Wednesday, May 15, at 5 p.m. at Berkshire Valley Field (rain date: Friday, May 17, at 5 p.m. at Lakeside Field). Other players born in 2005, 2006, and 2007 will be notified by email no later than May 9 if a Saturday tryout is necessary. New players will likely join a team practice on May 15.

Those unable to try out on the specified dates may contact to schedule an evaluation at a team practice.

Registration for the tryouts is required and must be completed online by the end of May 10 at Returning players must use their login from the current season to avoid a duplicate registration. New players must create an account; if selected for a team, they can add their birth certificate and photo.

Tryouts are free. Those selected will be assessed $340. New for the fall season, the fee includes team registration for a fall tournament. Coaches will notify players by early summer of the tournament in which their team will play.
