Travel Programs

Game Times/Locations subject to availability.

Who can play: 

U8* and up.  We have fielded teams from U8 to U19!  U8/U9/U10 may play both in-house and travel for no additional charge.

When do we play:  Travel Soccer plays on Sundays typically half of the games at home in Cranberry Twp.; the other half away at a neighboring club within 15-60 minutes.

*U8 players must be evaluated.  These players will have to play with U9/U10 players, so the evaluation staff must feel confident these players are physically and mentally prepared to play in these leagues.

Training: 

Travel teams generally have 1-2 practices per week as determined by the coach.

Player Evaluations: 

We have player evaluations dates for our travel players (typically in June/July) for the upcoming playing year as these team rosters stay in tact for both the fall and spring season (ex Fall 2016 / Spring 2017).  All players need to attend at least one evaluation.  However, it is best to attend two of the evaluations so we can get a better look at the players for placement.  Players that do not go through the evaluation process or that come out and our interested in playing for the Spring season only are to register on the waiting list and will be placed as space allows.

Philosophy

At SVSA, our mission has always been to try and place all of our kids that want to play soccer.  We have fielded teams in several different age/gender groups some being co-ed.  We will generally have teams established that can play in the various divisions of PA West Travel based on their rules for different levels of competition and experience.  We do have the challenge of all clubs with the numbers of players that do tryout, as PA West has definitive maximum roster sizes that cannot be exceeded as well as having a minimum number of players to field a team.  We have in the past, reached out to other local clubs to help build teams as they also like to place their players, and we have fielded co-ed teams. 

Travel versus Academy/Classic

Players at a academy/classic level can also play travel.  We encourage as much soccer as possible as it has been shown that the more the player can get touches on the ball, the better their skills can develop!  Travel plays on Sundays, Classic or Academy plays on Saturdays so there is minimal conflicts.
