TRAVEL PROGRAM INFORMATION
Our Travel program specifically focuses on the individual player development. Our Travel program begins at the under 9 (U9) age group and players can expect to receive high quality technical training that will be the foundation for their individual player development. Players are evaluated by the Coach to ensure that specific individual player growth is occurring both during the training session as well as during a game. Players will be expected to attend all the team training sessions as well as the speed and agility sessions. In addition, other voluntary training sessions will be made available throughout the year that players may attend if they choose.
Our Coaching team is comprised of highly licensed and experienced coaches. All Coaches must have a minimum of a United States Soccer Federation 'F' License to be hired. The Director of Coaching is responsible for all coaching education and licensing within the club teams. Coaches are encouraged to continue their education by attaining higher level licenses through the United States Soccer Federation or the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. In addition, the Coaches are expected to attend 90% of the additional Coaching clinics that are held at the soccer complex throughout the year. Player development begins with exceptional experienced Coaching.
