INSTRUCTIONAL SOCCER (A.K.A RECREATIONAL OR DEVELOPMENTAL SOCCER)
BYSA's Instructional Soccer program is a fun, entry-level soccer experience open to Barnstable residents ages 6-12. Simply put, the goal of our in-town recreational program is to foster self-confidence and to learn the game of soccer while having fun and making new friends. All games are played on Saturday mornings on the soccer fields at our designated Barnstable field.
BYSA's Travel Soccer program is a competitive soccer program affiliated with the South Coast Soccer League (SCSL). Our Travel program offers players a unique opportunity, beyond that of Instructional soccer, for player development and competition in a statewide system of age-level play. The SCSL is a competitive league with the goal of promoting the game of soccer in a competitive environment.
