Mass Youth Soccer Town Select League

The Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association, in partnership with many of our town member organizations, is excited to announce the formation of a new league known as the Town Select League (TSL).

The TSL will begin play the fall of 2016 as a pilot program located in the Northeast area of the state, encompassing players from town organizations currently participating in the Essex County Youth Soccer Association and the Middlesex Youth Soccer League. The age groups eligible to participate in the pilot are USSF defined U11 (players born in 2006) and U12 (born in 2005). Teams will be formed for both boys and girls, and will be coached by qualified individuals employed by Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association, under the direction of a Mass Youth appointed and employed Director of Coaching.   

The TSL is designed for players desiring a higher level of training and competition but who wish to continue to represent their town programs in current town based leagues, and have not committed to play and train with higher level clubs.

The purpose of the TSL is for Mass Youth to partner with its town-based member organizations, in coordination with existing, recognized town travel (MTOC) leagues, to provide opportunities for town registered players to experience a higher level of training, development and competition. We hope to establish a bridge path to higher level state and club programs. The TSL is intended to be an extension of and enhancement to town programs, not competition for them. 

Player Benefits
  • Alternating weekends of match play and one-per-week practice schedule limits the required time commitment
  • Continued participation with friends and peers on their town travel team..
  • Match play occurs in a confined geographic area within Essex and Middlesex counties and accessible via the Rt 93/95/128/1 corridors in the area, setting reasonable limits on time and travel requirements.
  • Players receive advanced training and experience a higher level of competition with other players of like skills at minimized cost
  • Players train under the guidance of qualified, committed coaches.
  • Consistent teams and philosophy through fall, spring and optional winter seasons
