Come experience Travel Soccer with Swarthmore Soccer Club!
SSC offers fun and affordable travel soccer on local fields for a reasonable cost. This year, travel teams are being formed for all children from the surrounding area with birth years 2015-2010. The Fall 2023 Registration Fee is $285. Our programs are perfect for the young multi-sport athlete as winter offerings and the spring season are optional and priced separately from the fall season.
Teams are coached and managed by volunteer parents, supplemented by professional trainers. In the fall, teams have twice weekly practices beginning mid-to-late August and continuing through early November. They play an 8-game schedule in the Central League against area travel soccer clubs. Professional training for each team is available this fall and included in the registration fee. Some teams will elect to do local tournaments, with an additional cost in the range of $30 per player per tournament.
Teams can elect to play in winter indoor league and the spring season of the Central League. Additional registration fees for these seasons are capped at $250. In addition, players can elect to participate in professional training sessions offered by the club.
Uniforms are required by all travel players and the cost is separate from registration. The kit consists of one black and one white jersey, a pair of black athletic shorts, and a pair of black soccer socks. Uniform ordering will occur after teams are selected.
THE FALL REGISTRATION FEE OF $285 WILL BE COLLECTED AT REGISTRATION. A player not invited to join a team or who choses not to join a team will receive a full refund if notification of that decision is given before June 7th.

PLEASE VOLUNTEER: SSC runs primarily under the direction of volunteer coaches and team managers, many of whom stay with their teams for years. Coaching is a big job, and it is made much easier by having a team of coaches. If you can help, please make note on the registration form, even if you can’t attend every game or practice.
CODE OF CONDUCT: All players and coaches are required to adhere to the SRA Code of Conduct.
SRA IS A SAFE SPACE. We ask children to register for soccer under the designation that works best for them and are open to helping non-binary or other gendered athletes participate. Please do not hesitate to reach out if standard gender designations are in any way an impediment to your child’s registration.
