Grade 3-4 Spring. HYAA's Grade 3/4 teams participate in the CYSL 7 v 7 (6 field players & a goalie) Division 3 (no try outs). Scores are reported strictly for the purpose of pairing teams for play in the season's culminating CYSL U10 Jamboree held in Duxbury the first weekend in June. The jamboree is conducted utilizing a recreational round robin format. There are no league playoffs, championship, etc. at this level. The Grade 3/4 division maintains a 50% playing rule policy - which means every player's experience will be that of a 50% playing time minimum. No Try Outs - all registered players will be placed on a team. U10 Games will be on Saturdays (times TBA). U10 Practice: generally 1x/week at the day/time @ the discretion of coach. Please note our 3/4 teams must be submitted to the league in January. Once number of teams is set we have a limited number of players we can accept into the program. Be sure to register on time, we may not be able to accomodate late registrations and there is usually no Waitlist for this age group.

Grade 5/6 - 7/8 - 9/10 - 11/12 -Spring. All U12 teams in the CYSL play a 8 v 8 format. All U14 teams and older in the CYSL play a 11 v 11 format. HYAA enters one team in each age group in  Division 1 and the remainder of teams in Division 2. CYSL Standings are maintained during the regular season to determine which teams qualify for post season play. At the conclusion of post season playoffs, a CYSL Champion is crowned in each Division (both 1 and 2). CYSL Division 1 and CYSL Division 2 Championship teams then advance to compete at the state level in their respective divisions at the Massachusetts Tournament of Champions (MTOC) in mid-late June.  

U12-U14 -Spring. Though every registered player will be placed on a team, U12 & U14  player evaluations & try outs, conducted during the prior fall season, will determine the various teams compositions. Games: Saturday (times TBA). Practice: generally 1x/week at the day/time @ the discretion of coach

U16-U18 -Spring. There are no try outs for U16 & U18 players. All interested players can participate within roster size limits determined by the CYSL. On occasion, age groups (within the high
school range) are combined to form a team, or towns with low enrollment numbers combine to make teams. Games: Sunday afternoons (times TBA). Practice: at the discretion of the coach though generally HS age teams do not practice due to players' commitments to HS sports, work, etc
