Fall Travel Registration Open
Dear NASA Travel Parents,
The 2019 Fall soccer registration is now open for travel levels U12 (G6 - grades 5 th & 6 th ) and U14 (G8 - grades 7 th & 8th ). All players in grades 5 to 8 will play at the travel level. The regular registration fee for this year will be $170*. Register by May 12 th and receive a $20 early registration discount. Registering late runs you the risk of rosters reaching their maximum levels and your child being wait-listed. If wait-listed, you will be notified accordingly and your credit card will NOT be charged until a team assignment is made. NASA's goal is to assign all registered players to a team and targets 15 players per U12 (G6) team and 18 per U14 (G8) team.
Evaluations for fall travel soccer will take place May 17-23 rd . Players MUST be registered prior to their evaluation day(s). If a player is not registered, they cannot participate in evaluations. The schedule by age group is listed at the bottom of this letter along with other key dates.
Travel evaluations serve several purposes. First and foremost, they are a key piece of data used to form all travel teams for the fall. All North Andover teams in G6 and up compete in the Essex County Youth Soccer Association league. This league has 4 divisions, and subgroups within each division. These divisions match teams of comparable skills and development to provide all players a competitive soccer environment. To align with the league, NASA forms teams of players with comparable skills, and slots them into the appropriate Division/Group within Essex County. Second, evaluations also feed into forming the 8 all-grade select teams (5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade boys and girls). Players who do not attend evaluations and do not have an excused absence (approved by the Travel Directors) prior to their evaluation date, are not eligible for the all grade select team. Please see the updated Travel Team Policy on the NASA website for complete details. A follow up email will be sent with more details on what is needed and expected at evaluations.
To register, please click on this REGISTRATION LINK to enter the NASA website. If your child plays on another club team, please do not use the club's login credentials to register your player with NASA. NASA players who are affiliated with other clubs that use Gotsoccer must register with a unique NASA account. If the club account is used to register with NASA, we will need to reject the registration and process a refund, requiring the need to re-register.
