Competitive Travel Program

The CYSA Competitive Travel soccer program is for players and coaches who are enthusiastic about soccer and are interested in taking the next step in skills and game play improvement.  The goal is to provide players with the skills and experience to help them thrive and potentially reach the next level in their soccer journey.  All teams will have a minimum of two coaches and these coaches are expected to provide clear, strong coaching to our athletes. Coaches at this level will be asked to not only go through the Safe Sport and Heads Up training but should also have a US Soccer certification. Coaches must be high energy and knowledgeable of the game of soccer. These teams will ideally, but not solely, be comprised of a single age group of athletes (by birth year). Teams must have the appropriate quantity, quality and dedication of athletes in order to compete at this level. The CYSA Competitive Travel soccer program starts in August and includes participation in the Fall Superliga Season, Two Indoor Winter Sessions, and the Spring Superliga Season.

Players will participate on teams in their proper age groups. Since these are designed to be competitively built teams there could be try-outs to determine rosters. If the Coaches and VP Travel are satisfied that try-outs are not necessary, then they do not need to take place.  The Competitive Travel Program starts at U7.

If a player does not have a team in their desired age group, they may be permitted to try-out for the team one year above them if there are roster spots available.  These situations will be looked at on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the coaches and VP Travel.

Tryouts, if necessary, held in mid-late June

Practices start late-August
League play starts in September for teams other than high school ages.
