Spring Travel Soccer
Spring travel soccer is for players with birth years 2006-2014. The shortened season is more laid-back than the fall season, with a focus on getting back on the fields and having fun with friends. The season consists of one game and one practice each week through April and May (with weeks off for Easter and Mothers’ Day). Game dates for 2022 are as follows: April 3, 10, 24 and May 1, 8 and 15. (You’ll have a bye one week.)
WHO: boys and girls birth years 2007-2014
WHEN: April and May, 2022, one practice and one game each week, (see above for game dates, practice days and times are determined in conjunction with volunteer coaches)
WHERE: Rutgers and Henderson Fields, plus some travel to away games
REGISTRATION: open January 10, 2022, 9:00AM through February 20, 2022, 11:59PM
Fall Travel Soccer
Fall travel soccer is for players in U8 through U16. The season runs from the week after Labor Day through Thanksgiving. Many coaches offer practices during the summer months. Most teams practice twice a week on weekdays with a game on the weekend.
Players register for soccer BEFORE evaluations. If your child is not selected for a team, we will refund your fee. (SSC policy is to accept as many players as possible.)

SSC Acceptance Day Party: DATE TBD (let the kids hang out with their friends while parents get registration squared away!)
Winter Indoor Soccer
Winter indoor soccer, played on the turf at the Springfield YMCA, is for SSC travel players who want to burnish their skills in the off-season. Indoor consists of once-a-week skills and scrimmages. Contact your coach to register.
***SSC players are also welcome to register for Winter and Summer Family Pick-Up Soccer***
