2017-18 Season Information

Overview

We currently offer programs for competitive (travel) soccer. Competitive soccer demands a high level of commitment from players and their families, including practices 2/3 times a week, plus travel for games.

Although we do not ask players to have soccer as their only sport, the high level of commitment needed for our program means soccer should be the #1 priority sport of each athlete during our season. When placed on the roster, each player commits to being at training sessions, games and tournaments unless they are ill, injured, have a significant family event etc.

The base model of our program is built on players taking part in both of our outdoor soccer seasons: fall and spring/summer; we also offer an optional winter season for indoor soccer. Fees for 2017-18 will be handled on a season by season basis.
