Hanson Youth Soccer

Fall Recreational League

Hanson Youth Soccer ("HYS") is excited to announce that we  are partnering with Whitman Youth Soccer for the Fall seasons to offer a recreational program for players in Grades 3 to 9.

Key Program Features


  • Saturday games at the Whitman Middle School and weekday practices as arranged by the parent-coaches.
  • Skill sessions to be offered to both players and parent-coaches by Liverpool, our club partner, among others.
  • Mixed-ability teams made up of both Whitman and Hanson players.
  • Separate boys and girls teams for grades 3 to 6; co-ed teams for grades 7 to 9.
  • Teams coached by pairings of Hanson and Whitman parent-coaches (assuming an adequate number of volunteers from both towns).
  • Uniform shirts are included in the program price.


Rationale for the Change


For several years, the HYS Board has been considering this recreational league model, which is used by a number of our neighboring towns, for the fall season. Our decision to make this change now is motivated by declining enrollment in Hanson Youth Soccer as well as ongoing challenges with the fall travel program of the South Shore Soccer League ("SSSL"). 


We believe that offering a less formal fall program will offer a relaxed, fun environment for learning soccer and will also encourage more Hanson children to try town soccer or to return to the program after an absence.


Hanson Youth Soccer will continue its participation in SSSL’s spring travel league, and we will be holding tryouts in late-fall to inform our placement of players on the travel teams. As before, both tryouts and the coach evaluations will be used to create the teams for the spring travel teams.

Registration Information


Fall registration is open from Mid-June and will run through August 12th.


  • Pre-Kickers (ages 3-5): $75
  • Instructional (K – Grade 2): $85
