Travel vs YDA for 1st - 4th Grade Players

HYS recommends that players who plan to play travel soccer transition from the YDA program to the Travel program as soon as they are comfortable. This can happen as early as second grade. The travel program will allow some older/more experienced first graders to join as well. This is not only the recommendation of HYS but also our High School coaches and US Soccer.

Below is some information comparing the Travel and YDA programs.
