Beacon Soccer Club Travel Program
Tryouts Fall 2017/Spring 2018
*** TRYOUTS FOR MONDAY, 5/22, HAVE BEEN POSTPONED. PLEASE CHECK THE TRAVEL TRYOUTS TAB FOR RESCHEDULED DATES ***
Beacon Soccer Club offers a travel program for players looking for a more advanced soccer experience. Our travel program is a competitive endeavor requiring a higher level of commitment both in time and financially. We hold tryouts in May of each year. There is a limited roster sized which means not every player trying out will make the team. Please check the TRAVEL TRYOUTS section located under the TRAVEL tab for specific information regarding dates/times/locations and age groups.
Print out and bring a Travel Tryout Form to every session your player attends. These will be used for attendance.
Our club competes in the East Hudson Youth Soccer League (EHYSL) which is affiliated with Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) and the United States Soccer Federation (USSF). There are separate teams and divisions for girls and boys. Level of competition and training prepares players for high school level of play. We also stress sportsmanship, fitness, organization, team commitment and other skills the young players will keep with them the rest of their lives.
Travel teams practice two times a week during the fall and spring at our fields in Beacon. Practices may start any time after 5pm. During the winter, there are indoor practices once/week in an indoor facility. As travel soccer requires a higher level of commitment, attendance at practices is expected.
Games are normally scheduled Sunday afternoons between 12:00 noon and 5:00 PM. The fall season starts first week of September and runs until the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The spring season begins the first Sunday in April and runs until mid-June. There are typically 8-10 games scheduled in the fall and 8-10 scheduled in the spring. One half of these games are played at our home fields in the Beacon area, including Beacon High School, Memorial Park, or Sargent Soccer Fields. The other half of games are played against other soccer clubs from Putnam, Dutchess, Westchester, Orange, and Ulster counties.
There are no games scheduled Labor Day weekend, Columbus Day weekend, Easter, Passover, or Memorial Day weekend, but individual teams may elect to participate in tournaments those weekends. Teams may also compete in indoor tournaments and/or winter leagues sponsored by other clubs or venues.
We provide our coaches with licensing and training opportunities. All travel coaches are required to complete at least an 'F' license course from USSF. Some have decades of playing experience in addition to coaching experience at the youth soccer and high school levels.
Thank you for your interest in the Beacon Soccer Club Travel Program and we look forward to seeing you on the pitch!
