The U-16 and U-18 programs provide playing opportunities for high school athletes in the spring. Teams are formed based on interest levels. Teams of about 15-22 athletes are formed, with an assigned head coach and 1-2 assistants.
At this age level, the athletes are in a travel program. Holliston Youth Soccer participates in BAYS.
Each team may have practices during the week if time and availability permit. This will be up to the coaches and the team members. Games may be on Saturday or Sunday, based on field availability and opponents schedules. The games are scheduled per BAYS recommendation and field availability.
The game includes two 40 minute halves and a five-minute intermission. The game is 11v11 and there are unlimited substitions, made during any goal kick and a team’s throw-ins. A size 5 ball is used. Travel referees officiate the game. Players wear official Holliston travel uniforms. Players must wear shin-guards, soccer socks and cleats.
The program runs for 7 weeks in the spring only.
