The Ashland Youth Soccer In-Town program is a fun, small-sided, team-oriented soccer for younger players attending Kindergarten through 3rd grade. 

Coaches are encouraged to not keep score during the games nor do we keep standings at the in-town level. The emphasis is on participation, skill development, and most importantly, having fun. We believe that a positive, up-beat environment is most conducive to your child having fun and developing a long-term interest in the game of soccer. We encourage all parents to allow their children to play without pressure, to let their child play freely in scrimmages with instruction only from their coaches, and to cheer for both teams.

Our coaches are volunteers. Maybe you will consider volunteering to help make this a great experience for your child!
