Q. Why is it called “travel” soccer

Q. Who do these teams play against?

A. Travel teams compete against area and regional teams sponsored by other local soccer clubs that participate in OCR, EDP and MOSA.

 

Q. What sort of commitment is required for parents and players of the travel team?

A. Typically, beginning several weeks prior to the season and continuing throughout the season, travel players attend practices twice-weekly.

Games are typically played on Sunday, but re-scheduled games (due to weather, etc.) may be on either Saturday or weeknights.

In addition, some teams may select to compete in local and regional tournaments each fall and spring.

During the summer, teams may practice, and players are strongly encouraged to attend club sponsored camps.

In the winter, teams may practice indoors (probably only once a week) and may participate in indoor soccer leagues.

As teams mature, players may participate in regional tournaments on several weekends a year.
