About EUSA Travel Soccer

Challenging the World

The EUSA Travel Soccer Program is offered to those players (and their families) who are seeking to play in more competitive matches against teams from other towns in NJ (and possibly other states as well).  Currently, EUSA’s travel teams participate as members of the Mid-NJ Youth Soccer Association (MNJYSA) League and Eastern Development Program (EDP).

Tryouts and Age Groups
Each year during the Spring season, EUSA conducts a series of player evaluations (tryouts) to create teams that will remain together for a year (starting with the Fall season of that same year and then ending after the Spring season of the following year).  Based on the results of their evaluation in comparison to other players in the same age group, a player may be offered a spot on a team depending on the number of teams in his/her age group. 
 
These age groups are known as:
Group 2016/17 Playing Year

U-9
2008
U-10

When and where Travel teams play
Travel soccer teams generally play five (5) games here in Edison, and five (5) games in other towns that are usually within 30-60 minute driving time from the Edison area.  These games are generally played on Sunday, although there may be an occasional games played on a Saturday.  Matches usually start between 11:30am and 3pm.
 
Practice, practice, practice
The only way to develop a better‑skilled player is to practice, practice, and practice.  Travel teams practice twice a week run by a professional trainer who assists the coach.  Travel teams also take part in speed & agility & strength training during the off-seasons. Teams, especially those that are older or play in higher‑skilled flights, may practice more often. The dates and times of all practice sessions are determined by the Club.  All travel teams practice 11 months out of the year.  Winter indoor training is mandatory for all teams.
 
Tournaments
As part of their registration fees, travel teams are able to participate in tournament depending on their age group and divisions.  These tournaments are a fun way to test every player’s skills against those from a wider geographic area than just the central NJ area.  All tournaments must be approved by the Board of Directors.  All teams also compete in our annual 3v3 LIVE Tournament held in August.
 
Fees
The fee for each player on a travel team is based on their division:  Pre-Academy or Academy.  Uniform fees are additional.

Additional Fees
There is an additional fee for uniforms, warmups, jackets, etc.  These items only need to be replaced if your child outgrows their clothing or wears thru them.

There may be additional fees for the team depending on the goals and needs established by the coach and the team.  Any additional fees require the approval of the VP of Travel.

Commitment & Transfers
All players accepted into the travel program agree to a one year full playing commitment (Fall - Spring).  If a player chooses to leave mid-season, they are still required to pay the full travel fees.  No player cards will be released until a player is paid in full with EUSA.

If a player is voluntarily released by an EUSA team, no further payments are due.
