TRAVEL TEAM TRYOUTS (Tryouts will be held at the end of the fall season for Grades 3/4 and up. Grades 1/2 and below do not travel or try out for Rec):

Spring Travel: Players must attend the tryout. You must register before trying out, either at tryouts or online. It is rare to cut, but if we are forced to because of numbers we will refund your registration promptly if you paid before tryouts. You get a $15 discount if you pay before tryouts. Teams will be announced by November 15th and all fees must be paid before December 1st. Practices will begin indoors in January. Travel teams usually play at least one session of an indoor league. Coaches sign teams up for this and any fee for this is extra and should be paid directly to the coach.

Mini Kickers:
Spring Mini Kickers is a program focusing on the development of children aged 2-3 years old. Players should be 2 or 3 yrs old before Sept 1 of the previous yr (it aligns with school year). The maximum number of participants is capped at 30 for 2 yrs olds and 3 yr olds and we do fill up. Mini Kickers will be held Saturday afternoons, 3pm for 2 yr olds and 4pm for 3 yr olds. The program runs from mid April to June.

They play 5 vs 5 (including Keepers). Games are two 25 minute halves. Practices and Games DO NOT conflict with Spring t-ball as t-ball historically does not play on Friday or Sunday nights. All coaches for this age group are parents of the players on the team. Teams are small so we need a lot of coaches to volunteer! There will be practices run by a professional trainer. There is no extra charge for the professional training. Coaches should act as the refs in the Spring. We generally are not training any young refs in the Spring.
Fee: $100 (early discount of $15 if register by March 31st).

Hardship Fund

Holbrook Avon Youth Soccer Association is proud to announce the we have established a Hardship Fund for families in need of assistance. It is the policy of HAYSA that no child should be denied the opportunity to play soccer due to a family's financial situation. In these hard times in which families deal with financial difficulties due to a parent losing their job or having health concerns afffecting their ability to work, we wanted to establish a fund in which parents can request assistance in paying league fees. HAYSA is run 100% by volunteer effort. The requirement for accepting a Hardship Fund scholarship is at least 1 parent is required to volunteer during the soccer season. This may be as a coach, concessions, fundraising, field maintenance, etc. Failure to volunteer may result in forfeiture of this assistance.

How does this work?

The application forms can be found here. The application is something that is handled with complete confidentiality. The request is mailed to the Treasurer of HAYSA. The parent simply fills out the form with basic information on the player/family and a brief description of the families particular financial needs. HAYSA requires that these requests are in by August 1st for the fall season and November 15 for the winter/spring season so decisions can be made before the season begins. We can not guarantee that we can grant all requests in full and may not be able to grant some at all. Our hope however, is that each request be met.

Once the Treasurer has decided who to grant money to and how much, the parent will be notified of the amount they will be given and how to register.

We have established an ability to grant funds, but do accept contributions to this fund both personally or by sponsors. If you know of a business that would like to help fund this program, please contact our Treasurer to discuss. If you have any other questions about this fund or need to ask if you think your situation is a good candidate, feel free to email Treasurer@haysa.org.
