• Travel players tryout in May. All players trying out for a travel team MUST register online first.

• Travel teams generally start practice during summer months in preparation for the Labor Day Tournament which is our biggest travel fundraising event.

• Travel teams usually practice 2 days per week for 1.5 – 2 hours each session on assigned fields with days/times being set by the coach.

• Each season will have at least 7 games up to 10 games.

• U-8 through U-12 play a size 4 ball. U-13 and up play a size 5 ball.

• U-9/U-10 play two 25 minute halves (may be broken into quarters); U-11/U-12 play two 30 minute halves; U-13/U-14 play two 35 minute halves; U-15/U-16 play two 40 minute halves; and U-19 play two 45 minute halves.

• In Division 1, playtime is established by the coach. In Division 2 and below (which includes ALL teams playing in age groups U-8 through U-11), each player should play at least half a game over the course of a season.

• Our teams currently play in the EHYSL and some play in the Metro League which is a joint effort by EHYSL and WYSL to form more competitive divisions.

• U15-U19 will play on one of our High School league teams.

• U8 – U10 is $310, U11-U14 is $350, High School (Spring only) is $250 plus team fees. There are additional fees associated with being with a travel team such as trainer fees, tournaments, supplies, etc.

Travel Labor Day Tournament


The Labor Day Tournament is the primary means of raising funds for the travel program.


Every team is required to sell a minimum of $2,500 of advertising. Each team must also provide “labor” for the tournament (i.e., fields, concessions, parking, etc.) If a team does not fulfill its obligations, funding will be withheld.
