Portland Soccer Club

Travel Program

The Travel program is our most competitive level of play. Given enough interest we will have separate teams of boys & girls in the soccer ages of 8-14. This program features match play against local teams from around the state of Connecticut. Games and practices take place 3-4 times weekly (1 game -- 2 practice or 2 games and 2 practice sessions). This program features full uniforms, team experience and a higher level of coaching knowledge. Travel players typically attend summer camps and play indoors in the winter months. The Portland Soccer Club is very serious about its Travel Program. The club has an experienced and dedicated coaching staff.  

Effective with the Fall 2015 - registration fees will include the cost of a "uniform kit".  This will include a new uniform on an annual basis and a backpack and warm-up jacket upon initial participation in the PSC Travel program.  Please note that fall the fall 2015 season all travel players U13 and below will receive a warm-up jacket.

Player Passes

Player passes are individual identification cards required by the CJSA and issued by the US Youth Soccer.  Approximately the size of a credit card, the player passes are shown to the referee at the beginning of each game to verify that a player is an official member of the team.   All players, coaches and the team manager are required to have player passes.   The coach or team manager must bring the player passes to every game. 

Pre-printed player passes are given to the team managers before the fall season.  The team manger assembles the player passes as follows:

¨      Players/coaches/manager supply the team manager with a photograph (approximately 1 ½ “ x 1 ½”) of him/herself.

¨      Photographs are glued to the back of the player pass in the spot marked “Attach Photo Here.”

¨      Players/coaches/managers sign the back of the pass on the line marked “Player Signature.”

¨      Once all passes have photographs and signatures, the passes are stamped with the official CJSA seal.  The travel registrar is responsible for stamping passes.

¨      All stamped player passes are laminated and cut to size.
