Traverse Bay Area Youth Soccer [TBAYS] is a volunteer organization providing quality soccer programs and facilities for all youth and all levels, promoting positive physical, mental and emotional development.
The TBAYS Soccer Club is comprised of three different divisions. TBAYS Juniors players (U4-U7) are grouped together by school and school grade. Our youth recreation (U7-U12) program is grouped to create evenly skilled teams. We also offer recreation teams for U13 and up that travel only in Northern Michigan. Our third division is our competitive division, North Storm. Our North Storm teams are formed by tryouts in June and travel around the state for competition.

TBAYS is a member league of the Michigan State Youth Soccer Association. MSYSA is a branch of the USYSA, which oversees much of the youth soccer in the United States (including Olympic Development programs). Membership in MSYSA allows TBAYS teams to compete in and to host sanctioned tournaments, provides training for coaches and referees, and gives insurance protection for coaches and players. TBAYS maintains firm standards of behavior and sportsmanship for its players and coaches, all of whom are governed by a strict code of conduct.
