Interested in playing Travel Soccer, but not sure what to expect, here is some background.
All players are broken down into different age groups and possible separate boys and girls team based on the number of players that sign up.
Please note that sometimes we will combine 2 age groups to form a team.
If teams were formed by combining age groups, there is NO GUARANTEE, that they will stay combined in the next year. This is not uncommon and we try to keep the age groups within the Division structure of Mid New Jersey Youth Soccer. It is possible that players may change teams from year to year based on try-out results as well as number of players available for each team.
The age categories beginning in Fall of 2016 are based upon birth year as described here on the US Youth Soccer site.
Some things to note about the travel program:
U8 - U14 play both Fall and Spring
U15-U19 play Spring Only
Every team plays at least 10 games a season.
5 home games
5 away games (all within Central NJ)
All games are Sunday except EDP Futures Festivals are scheduled for Saturdays.
Each team may opt to play in multiple tournaments through out year
It is a great time for kids and parents. The number of practices will vary based on the age and coach of the individual teams. If you have questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
