Travel Information Grades 3-8

General Information

Grades 3-8 register and play in two separate seasons: Fall and Spring soccer. All teams travel to some extent, with up to five "away" games per season. If games are canceled due to weather or field issues, make-up games will be scheduled and should be played. 

Session times, fields, and activities will vary as we adjust to comply with mandated COVID-19 requirements.

Fall 2020

Games for Grade 3 and above are on Saturdays for 10 weeks starting Saturday, September 19, 2020 and ending Saturday, November 14, 2020. Games WILL BE scheduled on the Columbus Day weekend. Since the season start was delayed one week, the Week 1 game will be treated as a rain-out with an automatic make-up game TBD.

Spring 2021

Games for Grade 3 and above are on Saturdays for 10 weeks starting Saturday in early April 2021 and ending mid June 2020. 

Game and Practice Times:
Grade 3: All third graders participate in a 10-week in-town/local travel program. Games are on Saturdays with one or two weekly practices. Specific practice day/time varies by coach/team but will generally stay constant each week. Girls will play in the mornings at 9:00, 10:30, or 11:45 am, while boys games will generally start at 1:00, 2:30, or 4:00 pm. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to your game start.

Grades 4-8:
All players in Grades 4-8 participate in the BAYS (Boston Area Youth Soccer) travel program and have a 10-week season. Games are held on Saturdays with one or two weekly practices. Specific practice day/time varies by coach/team but will generally stay constant each week. 

When league schedules are available, click below to find your team schedule, including field locations, by looking within the Westwood team listing by gender/grade for your team name/head coach name. The BAYS league has 56 towns, but sections are generally organized by geography, although travel can be up to 1 hour potentially. Plan to arrive at your specified field around 30 minutes prior to your game start time to allow for warm-ups and team check in. Your coach will provide you with more specific information.


BAYS suggested game times are listed below. Games may vary from the suggested times, but girls games are generally in the morning, and boys games are generally in the afternoons on Saturdays.
