Travel Soccer(Gr 5-11)

Travel Soccer

Travel soccer is a competitive program that ASA runs in Fall and Spring.

Grades 5—8 Travel Soccer (U12 & U14):  Travel teams from Grades 5/6 (U12) and older are part of the Essex County Youth Soccer Association (ECYSA).  Teams typically play 4 games in Amesbury and 4 games away in other towns within Essex County.  Teams having players in Grades 5/6 (U12) or Grades 7/8 (U14) play games on Saturdays.  Grade 5/6 teams play 9 v 9, and Grade 7/8 teams play 11 v 11 on a full size field with a size 5 ball.

Grades 9-11: In the spring, we try to field high school level teams.  Those players Grades 9/10 (G10) and Grades 11/12/PG typically play six games on Sundays. 

Travel teams typically practice twice a week, for 75-90 minutes.  The practice schedule is determined by the coach at the beginning of each season.

Grades 5-8 ECYSA Game Schedules


Players in MVP and ECYSA Travel currently use the same uniform. Uniforms are purchased by the player and may be used for multiple seasons.

*ASA is going with a new uniform design beginning in the Fall 2023 season.* All players will need to purchase new jerseys for that season. Black socks and shorts will remain the same.

If your child needs a uniform top, shorts or socks for the upcoming season, please order through this online store.

Any questions or issues:  contact Rob at Amesbury Sport / Motivate Team sales.  You can e-mail Rob:

Registration Status


Please be aware that ECYSA requires rosters to be submitted 7-8 weeks before the start of the season. Fall registration typically closes in mid July and spring registration closes in mid February. 

Please contact our Travel Director Mike Testa with any questions about Travel Soccer or the registration process.  

Fields for Kids

Amesbury Soccer Association (ASA) proposes a new strategy to realize a longstanding vision to improve soccer fields for the enjoyment of the town and visiting teams; the safety of the players, referees, coaches and families; and to preserve and protect the fields in our community.
