Expectations of Travel Soccer Players & Parents
- Being part of a travel team is a commitment. Parents must make every attempt to have their children at all practices and all games on time and with all their equipment. Shin guards and cleats are required for both practices and games.
- We play in all weather conditions so please dress accordingly. Games do not get canceled due to weather with the exception of thunder /lightning and this will be at the discretion of the referee.
- Louisville Soccer Club Team uniform is required to be worn for all games. The uniforms include one blue jersey, one white jersey, shorts, and socks. After you have been informed that your child has been added to a travel team roster, uniforms should be purchased from Soccer One in the Belden Village area. The price includes your number on the back of each jersey. Please order your uniforms ASAP because it can take 2-3 weeks to come in.
- Each individual coach will make the practice schedule for their team. If you have scheduling conflicts these should be discussed with your coach immediately.
- Please be respectful of others. Absolutely NO negative comments, heckling, or yelling at players, coaches, or referees will be tolerated. There is to be no coaching of your child from the sidelines. As a parent/spectator, your involvement is to be a positive one. Please cheer on the children and leave the coaching to the coaches.
All players interested in playing Travel MUST attend tryouts, even if already playing on a travel team. Attending tryouts does not guarantee your player a spot on a team. Teams are formed based on the number of coaches willing to coach travel.
NO PAPERWORK OR MONEY is needed at tryouts.
Please complete the Travel Tryout form online.
Players should arrive in soccer attire and bring a ball. Please arrive with your player to sign them in. After tryouts, coaches will call you to let you know if your player made a team.
Cost to play Travel is $150, plus uniform.
There will be one boy and one girl team per age group unless the number of children would justify more.
Travel Coaches: If you would like to add new players to your team, they MUST attend tryouts.
