Travel vs YDA for 1st & 2nd Grade Players


HYS recommends any players that plan to play travel soccer move from the YDA program to Travel by 2nd grade. The travel program will allow some older/experience 1st graders to join as well. Players that move to travel at 1st to 2nd grade have a much smoother transition into travel than the players that join the travel program 3rd grade or older. This is not only the recommendation of HYS but also High School coaches.

Below is some information comparing the Travel and YDA programs.
