Travel/SIMSS Team Information  

Each Fall and Spring, for grades kindergarten through eighth, we have competitive teams that travel to play other area programs and tournaments. This is a great program for players who want to take their game to the next level. It is also for players who want to play year round. In the Spring, we only have a travel program - no recreational soccer. 

This is a competitive soccer program.  Play time for each player is determined by the head coach given player ability and game situation. This is not like the recreational league where coaches are required to play everyone at least half of the game.  

Spring 2022 Fees: Travel Team (K-4th) $50 (plus $25 if you need a jersey). We are going to try to use same jersey as last year. 
                                         SIMSS (5th-8th): $80 (includes jersey rental to be turned back in at end of season)

Please do not give pay to coaches.
