there are three "and"-particles. 1. と is common and used to list a finite amount of things, for example: 「サッカーと野球」= soccer and baseball
2. や is used for unfinished lists, for example: 「サッカーや野球」 = things such as soccer and baseball by using や instead of と you just point out that you're talking about things like soccer and baseball but not necessarily ONLY about those two kinds of sport.
3. とか has the same use as や but is more casual and mostly used in slang, for example: 「サッカーとか」 = soccer and stuff note that this particle is the only particle that can end your list. You can neither say 「サッカーと」 nor 「サッカーや」!
