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 2023 Fees: Travel Team (K-4th): $60 Plus $30 Jersey Fee (if needed)    
                                           SIMSS Middle School (5th-8th): $80 (includes jersey rental to be turned back in at end of season)

PAY ONLINE IN FULL (recommended): Submit total fees online at conclusion of the registration session via Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or ACH Bank Account. Registration and team placement will be fully completed using this option. We STRONGLY encourage this option to streamline the process for all. You will not have access to team schedules or communications until payment is received if you choose the Pay OFFLINE option. 

PAY OFFLINE at Park Office CASH OR CHECK: Bring cash or check to Park Office (921 W. Poplar Street) during regular office hours (Monday - Friday 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM). Payment is due no later than 4:00 PM on Friday March 24, 2023.   

If you choose to pay at the park office (cash or check), you will still register through SportsEngine. However, your registration cannot be completed until you pay at the Park Office. Once you pay there, they will give you a code to enter that will allow the registration to be completed. Don't close your SE registration session or you will need to complete the registration process again at the Park Office. 

Please do not give payment to coaches.  You cannot pay for participation in the manner!

BEFORE you register using the link below you will need to obtain the registration password from your travel/SIMSS coach. 

REGISTER: Parent or Guardian of player should register player online at: travel/simss registration link.  If this is your first visit to the site, you will need to setup your SportsEngine account. This will be the Primary Account Holder for the registration. Once logged in, complete the 2023 SYSA Spring Travel/SIMSS Soccer Registration.   

Once you have setup your SportsEngine Account using link above and paid, you can download the SportsEngine app for access to schedules and team communications once your child has been assigned to a team by the league.
