Travel Teams

The Pottsville Youth Soccer Association (PSYA) sponsors several travel teams.  These teams play in the Reading Berks Junior Soccer League and in various tournaments.

Travel Teams must abide by the Travel Team Guidlines.

All members of PYSA sponsored travel teams must be residents of the Pottsville Area School District (including St. Clair Area School District) and must be officially registered with the PSYA on a yearly basis. The teams are formed by open tryouts and must follow all PYSA rules and schedules.

New travel teams wishing to form, with PYSA sponsorship, must contact the board in writing stating the proposed age level, team name, coaches’ names and proposed tryout dates. Final rosters and game/practice schedules must be submitted to PYSA.

All fundraisers for PYSA sponsored travel teams must be approved by the PYSA Board, and will be advertised on our homepage and facebook page.

The Schuylkill County Youth Soccer Association offers County Travel Teams for teams wishing to form with players who are not residents of the Pottsville Area School District.

The home field for PYSA sponsored travel teams is the Gordon Nagle field complex
