Thursday, June 8: Soccer Tryouts POSTPONED TODAY due to Air Quality Alert

Due to the ongoing air quality alerts in our area, and an advisory that children and teenagers limited outdoor activities, we have decided to postpone our planned tryouts for today.

We are working on a revised schedule of tryouts that will likely take place next week. Please check back later this evening for more details. We will also email updates to all registered participants.


Tryouts for Fall 2023 Travel Soccer

Amherst Youth Soccer will be hosting tryouts for our Fall 2023 season the week of June 5 and 12th. Please see below for the tryout schedule!

All players aged 7 and up, who reside or attend school in Amherst are eligible.

Your child is ready to try out for the travel soccer league if they: 

  1. Currently play some soccer and want to play more of it!
  2. Want to develop greater skill in the game.
  3. Are ready to be challenged in a more competitive environment.

The AYSA Director of Coaching and his staff will observe players during a scrimmage game. New players will be trying out with existing players and we assess for individual skill and ability to play as part of a team. 

Please Register in Advance using the links on this page (Travel Registration). You will be directed to create an account, or use an existing account, and then select a tryout program, based on the age of your child (see below).

Players need to bring: 

  • Soccer cleats (plastic, not metal)

  • Soccer Ball – Size 3 or 4
  • Water

All tryouts are at Plumbrook Field, Potwine Ave (South Amherst). Please arrive at the stated time to sign in. Tryouts will begin 15 minutes after the start time.
