Haverhill Youth Soccer's In-Town program is a recreational soccer league for children in Grades 3 to 6. It is competitive but non-results oriented, meaning scores are not recorded and there are no play-offs. Players are randomly placed on teams for each season. Teams meet twice during the week for practices led by volunteer coaches and play a small-sided game on Saturday.
In-Town has two independent seasons consisting of eight weeks of play.
- Fall - September to November with a break around Columbus Day.
- Spring - April to June with a break around Memorial Day.
The upcoming Spring 2018 season is scheduled to begin on April 28th, break for Memorial Day on May 26th, and end on June 23rd. This schedule is subject to change based on field availability.
Players are randomly placed on teams for each season.
