Travel Program

For players seeking a soccer environment more competitive than In House soccer, our Travel program is an option. Travel teams begin with U9 players. Pending the number of registered players, the SFSA forms teams from U10 to U18 and if necessary, will combine age groups to sufficiently roster a team (for example : U9 with U10 or U11 with U12). The travel league is run by PAWest. This league has Divisions 4, 5, and 6 with Division 4 being the most competitive. The games are typically played against teams such as Upper St. Clair, Canon-Mac, Peters Township, and Wheeling. Division 4 teams will sometimes travel further distances, playing local teams along with teams from Erie, Altoona, Johnstown, and Clarksburg WV.

Teams are assembled by the SFSA Board using evaluations from an outside and independent source and coaches' input. See the Travel Team Formation page for more details.  The evaluations are done each spring. Our objective is to place teams/players in the most appropriate division where teams/players will have a sufficient level of competition to advance their development. All players will be assigned to a team except in extenuating circumstances.   Attending an evaluation in the spring is mandatory in order to be to be placed on a travel team for the following fall or spring season.  Those not attending an evaluation will be referred to the inhouse program.

Coaches often run one or two practices a week. Practices are typically held from Monday through Friday during the 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM timeframe. Game are officially supposed to be scheduled on Sundays after 12 PM; however, make up games can be scheduled on other days of the week also. Under extenuating circumstances such as player availability, a team may not practice and just play the game on Sunday. Practices and games are typically held on the fields at Hogan, Fairview Park, Preservation Park, or the South Fayette School District campus. 

Each player is required to wear shin guards. Player provided soccer spikes are optional but recommended (players may not wear football spikes, baseball spikes or metal spikes of any kind). Players must bring a size 4 or size 5 soccer ball (as appropriate for the age group) and something to drink to all practices and games.
