The SSC travel program is for players who are interested in playing soccer at a more competitive level than the Intercounty programs. Annually, more than 450 players on over thirty teams represent the SSC in several leagues, with the majority of teams competing in the Mid New Jersey Youth Soccer Association League and Morris County Youth Soccer Association. Travel teams play in the fall and spring against teams from central New Jersey - opposing teams may be up to an hour's travel away - and in addition, many teams also participate in tournaments once a year. Travel players practice twice a week and compete on Sundays.
The travel program constantly challenges players to realize their highest potential through intensive training and competition. The goal of the travel program is to:
Enhance the player’s technical and tactical skills through a competitive team environment so they can effectively compete at an advanced level.
Foster a winning attitude based on sportsmanship.
Have fun and make the experience positive and memorable.
Develop a life long love for the game.
Players are selected and placed on teams based on assessments from independent evaluators during “tryouts” and from their coach and trainer evaluations. Tryouts dates for an upcoming season will be posted on the SSC homepage. Any player wanting to be considered for a team must tryout and returning players are not guaranteed a spot on a team. Every player of proper age is permitted to tryout for a travel team. Selection to a team invokes a commitment on the part of the player to attend all practices and games and to participate in both the fall and spring seasons.
Teams are established based on gender and birth year.
