PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS:

TOWN:

  • One registration fee covers the one season (Fall or Spring - 7 games).
  • Games are on Sundays between 8 am and 3:15 pm
  • Pre-K/K does not practice, other age groups may hold one practice during the week

TRAVEL: For those of you with children who will be trying out for the TRAVEL program (starting at the Grade 3/4 levell), we offer a combined Town and Travel program registration. We feel that there are many advantages for Travel players to also participate in the Town program.

Therefore, there will be two registration options for Travel players: Travel program only, and a Combined Town/Travel program.

1. TRAVEL program only - Fall/Spring

  • One Registration Fee for BOTH Travel Fall and Spring seasons
  • Requires a commitment to play BOTH in the Fall and Spring
  • One to two practices per week
  • Most games on Saturdays (with occasional mid-week games as required because of rescheduling)

2. Combined TOWN/TRAVEL - Fall /Spring - One Registration fee covers:

  • TRAVEL Soccer for BOTH Fall and Spring seasons
    • Requires a commitment to play BOTH in the Fall and Spring
    • One to two practices per week
    • Most games on Saturdays (with occasional mid-week games as required because of rescheduling)
  • TOWN Soccer for BOTH Fall and Spring seasons
    • Requires a commitment to play BOTH in the Fall and Spring
    • Attendance at TOWN practice is not required for Travel players (but certainly encouraged if time permits)
    • All games are on Sundays

SHOOTING STARS (Pre-School)

  • Available in the Spring only
  • Six 45-minute sessions on Sundays, no practices

  • The training for Travel Players Grades 3-8 will be required (Fall Season only)
  • The training for Town Players Grades PK-2 will be strongly recommended (Both Fall and Spring Seasons)
  • This training will be included within your registration fee.
  • The Fall training schedule will be released as soon as it is available.
  • We know that some schedule conflicts are going to occur, but we strongly encourage all eligible players to attend. Club players who are already receiving technical training would not be expected to attend, but would be welcome if schedules allow.
