Intown soccer is for younger kids who practice and play against other teams from Malden. It is open to kids from PreK through 2nd or 3rd grade. Players practice and play at a Malden field once a week. The objective of intown soccer is to lay the foundation for a life-long love of the game by focusing on basic skills, fun, and enjoyable exercise.
Travel teams compete against teams from other towns within the Middlesex Youth Soccer League. Teams are divided by gender, age, and skill... ranging from highly competitive Division 1 to entry-level Division 5. Our fall travel season is open to players between grades 3 and 8. Our spring season is also open to high school-aged players. Travel teams play competitive games on the weekends, and also have 2 team practices per week on several fields in Malden, twice a week for 1.5-2 hours, on days and times chosen by the coaches. About half of the travel games take place within Malden, and the other half are played in other towns within Middlesex county.
TOPSoccer (The Outreach for Soccer) is a nationwide program that provides soccer-based activities for players with physical or mental disabilities who are between 4 and 20 years of age. For students with special needs, this is a great opportunity to learn from a "buddy athlete" in a one on one setting. TOPSoccer is designed for kids of all abilities to learn how to play soccer at their own pace.
In addition, we welcome those who would like to be "buddies" for the players. We especially invite current coaches and their players to join in and work with this wonderful community of players and their families. This is also an opportunity for students looking for community service hours.
