The Port Washington Soccer Club has a dynamic and extensive travel soccer program. As with other clubs, this program is intended for competitive and committed soccer players looking to take their game to the next level. We typically field 50+ teams across boys and girls age groups from U9-U19, and participate in various leagues, cup tournaments, friendly tournaments, scrimmages, and other competitions. In many age groups, we have multiple teams, offering options for various levels of competition, with the goal of enabling both our most competitive as well as our developing teams with the opportunity to compete against similar-level teams.
All teams are assigned a dedicated professional trainer. Teams also have 1-3 volunteer parent managers that assist in both organizational duties, and also help the professional trainers on the sidelines.
The travel program is a tryout-based program, with tryouts occurring in May/June for the following school year. During the outdoor fall and spring seasons, teams typically practice twice per week for 90 minutes per practice, and have league games on the weekends. Teams also participate in various tournaments, and the club provides regular clinics for players to further develop their skills.
Since this is a tryout-based program, the club's expectation is that players accepting positions on teams will commit to their team for the entire school year. Costs vary based on age group and specific teams (depending on the number of tournaments they intend to participate in and the nature of their winter program). Many teams do provide indoor winter training, and also participate in indoor soccer or futsal leagues.
The Port Washington Soccer Club endeavors to provide scholarships for players that are unable to afford the entire cost of travel soccer - our goal is to keep our programs open to all players. For those able to do so, a donation to the club makes it possible for the club to continue to offer scholarships where needed, so that all youth soccer players in our community have the opportunity to experience soccer.
