Travel Soccer Tryouts & Information

04/01/2017, 8:00am EDT
By SVSL Webmaster

Saucon Valley Travel Team Soccer is holding open tryouts for the 2017/2018 season. We are looking for dedicated players in all age groups to strengthen our teams for the Fall and Spring Season. To register for tryouts go to www.sauconsoccer.com  between April 1 and April 23.

 

The primary focus of the program is to teach the game of soccer - providing players with skills, tactics and game strategies, while fostering a love for the sport.  We require a commitment from each child to work hard, come to scheduled practices and games, to support each other and to win or lose as a team.

 

Organized by gender and age, SV Travel Team is competitive team soccer offering quality instruction from state and nationally licensed coaches, however it is not “premier” or “elite” soccer.  We focus on a greater development of soccer playing ability than what is offered in our Intramural program.

 

Commitment:

  • Fall Season - September to mid-November.  Approximately 10 games held on Saturdays or Sundays against greater Lehigh Valley teams.

  • Practice 2 nights per week starting in July/August including professional trainer sessions in the Fall, plus open pickup soccer 1 night per week.
  • Winter/Spring – typically teams will enter winter indoor leagues and the spring LVYSL season.   Participation during off season is encouraged but optional. 

     

    Cost:

    • Annual registration fee ($125) covers both Fall and Spring Season.

    • Trainer fee ($80) for the Fall season

    • Uniform cost ($85) is purchased once and worn multiple years/seasons

    • Financial Aid may be available by contacting Lainie Smith (610) 419-6097

     

    Age Groups and Game Format:

    • To comply with new USYSA rules, the age groups are organized by birth year, no longer by school calendar year.
