The Stoneham Soccer Club provides a Travel team program which allows players a wider range of experience with the game of soccer. The purpose of the travel program
is to further advance individual and team skills while competing with neighboring communities. As in any inter-community competition, the incentive also includes a sense of community pride. Anyone
may register to play on a travel team, town team or both. It is the hope of the Stoneham Soccer Club that more town players will add to their playing experience by joining the travel team
In order to allow game play with other towns, the Stoneham Soccer Club is a member of the Middlesex Youth Soccer League (www.MiddlesexSoccer.org) . Half of each season's games are played away. Travel games are scheduled at predetermined times on Saturdays. Travel teams generally practice one or two times a week.
Travel registration is a one-year committment, requiring one registration for both the Fall and Spring season. Registration takes place in the Spring for the upcoming Fall/Spring season.
Travel teams are formed for both the Fall and Spring seasons (ten games per season). The Fall season is a recreational/placement season and the following Spring
season is competitive for league standings. During the Spring season, statistics are kept by Middlesex Youth Soccer League and the competition is directed toward regional and state tournaments in
Stoneham Soccer Club provides travel teams for under 10, under 12, and under 14. Under 10 teams play 6v6 soccer and team rosters are limited to 12 players. Under 12 teams play 8v8 and team rosters are limited to 14 players. Under 14 teams play 11v11 and may carry a roster of up to 18 players.
