GRADE ELIGIBILITY FOR TRAVEL SOCCER 2023-2024*

*ASA is one of the largest towns in Essex County Youth Soccer Association. Due to our size, ASA is able to organize teams by grade allowing our players to grow and play with their classmates and friends. Most towns who participate in ECYSA are not large enough to do this. As a result, ASA Grade 5 teams play in ECYSA’s Grade 6 leagues and may compete against blended grade 5/6 teams. ASA's Grade 7 teams play in ECYSA’s Grade 8 leagues and may compete against blended grade 7/8 teams. 

Players must meet Grade AND Date of Birth Requirements for chosen Level.

Travel soccer is a fall and spring commitment - the fall season prepares teams for the competitive spring season.

ASA understands that some players are not able to play both the fall and spring seasons and does its best to accommodate players regardless of commitment.  However, based on prior years ASA has learned that most families who register for Fall ONLY ask to add spring at a later date. In order to have a more accurate idea of the number of players are committed to the full Travel soccer year (fall and spring), and to minimize registration issues, we would like to encourage players to sign up for the Fall 2023 Spring 2024 season. 

IMPORTANT:  Players who register for Fall or Spring ONLY are not eligible to be placed on a top team for their age group.  Additionally, if a player who is registered for the full year and is placed on a top team withdraws for the spring season, they will not be eligible to be placed on a top team the following year.  Coaches provide player evaluations to ASA at the end of the year, including attendance.  If a player remains on a team for the spring but does not regularly attend ASA travel team practice or games it may affect future team placement.  Refer to the ASA Assessment section https://www.andoversoccer.org/playerassessment for more information.

 


If your player is only able to commit to the Fall season (will not add spring at a later date), please contact the Travel Registrar for help with registering your player at travelregistrar@andoversoccer.org.

ASA TRAVEL REFUND POLICY

ASA recognizes that we ask players to register months before the Travel season begins.

Referees

The Andover Soccer Association (ASA) Intown Referee Program is an incredible opportunity for all boys and girls in grades 7-12.

Our Referee Program will provide the opportunity to learn the basics of refereeing and to gain invaluable experience officiating real games for our in-town program (U9 grade 3 and U10 Grade 4) for a per game stipend (stipends are paid out at the end of the season upon timely submission of all referee forms).

All students in grades 7-12 are eligible to participate in the program.  All prospective referees who did not attend the Referee Training session in Fall 2023 are required to attend the ASA Referee Training Program session before the start of the spring season (Spring 2024:  March 17th).  Referees will be able to provide their availability for which games fit their schedules.
