About JPYS

Jamaica Plain Youth Soccer provides a safe and sporting atmosphere for the youth of Jamaica Plain, Roslindale and surrounding Boston neighborhoods to have fun while learning and participating in the game of soccer. The success of JPYS depends upon the collective efforts and cooperation of ALL participants. The JPYS programs include:

The Academy

The Academy provides young soccer players (Grades 1 - 4) the opportunity to develop their skills while having fun under the guidance of professional and volunteer soccer coaches. The U8 Academy (Grades 1 - 2) and the U10 Academy (Grades 3 - 4) promote technical skill development and the beginnings of competitive soccer. Players in the U10 Academy can also opt to play on a travel team starting in 3rd grade.


Travel Teams

For players from school grades 3 to 12. Players are assigned to teams according to gender, age, and ability and play games against other towns in the Boston Area Youth Soccer (BAYS) league. For questions about the Girls Travel Program, contact the Girls Travel Director, Jon Rudzinski, and for questions about the Boys Travel Program, contact the Boys Travel Director, Jerry DeMaio.

The Spring 2018 season for grades 3 through 8 begins on April 7. The season for high school age teams begins April 22.


Code of Conduct
