High Level Overview of a Travel Soccer Commitment

Typically the season runs as follows

  • July/August - Tryouts & Team Assignments/Cuts
  • Sept - Dec - some coaches may run practices until the snow flies.   Depending on how the covid situation goes this year, we may get school gym time for winter practices
  • Jan - Typically march - Indoor practices and potentially indoor leagues depending on the coach/level
  • Once the weather breaks coaches typically move to outdoor practices for the balance of the league season.  
  • League typically starts in April/May and runs through the end of July.  The furthest our teams travel is Niagara Falls or Wilson.
  • Expect 1-3 tournaments during the spring as well.
