Registration for ‘Fall Only 2016’ and ‘Fall 2016/Spring 2017’ (benefitting from our full-year discount) will open in early May and remain open until June 30th for all players going into 4th Grade through 8th Grade this Fall. Thereafter, Registration moves to Waitlist Status – players will be placed on rosters IF and when openings are available, and a late fee is charged. Registration is available through www.walpolesoccer.org – in the upper left hand corner of the home page.
Younger players – those going into 3rd Grade and below in the Fall will have longer to register, as their teams do not need to be registered with the BAYS travel league. The date Registration moves to Waitlist Status for players going into 3rd grade is Aug 1st. For those players going into Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade this Fall, Registration goes to Waitlist Status on Aug 15th.

There are a significant number of concerts/recitals/camps/dinners/dances etc this Spring. Every effort has been made to avoid conflicts, but if you are aware of an event that will prevent a number of players from participating, please let one of the board members know as soon as possible.
All players wishing to play travel soccer in the Fall are encouraged to attend, and MUST be registered 24 hrs prior to their Tryout. Registration will open in early May at www.walpolesoccer.org and we suggest that players register for both Fall & Spring soccer to benefit from our 2 season discount – each season is priced individually, but by registering upfront for both seasons we offer a significant discount (which eliminates a huge amount of volunteers time to reprocess and re-register players and teams).
Full tryout details available at www.walpolesoccer.org – under the Tryouts link listed under the Programs menu listed at the top of the homepage.
There will be a parent information meeting night – for parents wishing to learn more about the tryout process – exact date and time TBD.
Players are asked to arrive 15 minutes early for their tryout to register, and wear shorts, cleats, shin pads and bring water and a ball to warm up. They will be provided 2 numbered shirts for the tryouts.
Tryouts are drop off only. We ask all parents to return 10minutes before the end of their player’s session for pick up.
Teams will be created based on coach’s evaluations from the prior season(s) and the results of the tryouts. Tryouts themselves only constitute a portion of the decision making. Other factors in determining the number of teams include the number of players registered, number of volunteer coaches and slots in the league.
Current 3rd grade parents – please be sure to register your players NOW! Spots for travel soccer in the 4th grade is restricted by the BAYS league’s registration system. You need to be registered before the June league deadline to play.
Current 6th & 7th grade parents – Decisions about blending players onto teams from each grade (for Fall u14 soccer) will not be made until the number of players and depth of competitiveness has been determined. We will use a ‘call back night’ to determine the best composition of teams and players. We will endeavor to keep everyone playing with friends from their grade, while providing opportunities for teams to plays as competitively as reasonable.
