Simsbury Soccer Club

U9 Travel Developmental Program Overview
  • There will be 23 to 25 players in each of the boys and girls programs.
  • Players will be selected based on age specific tryouts conducted in the spring.
  • All the players will practice together in both programs.
  • The training/game ratio will consist of three days of training and one "friendly" (non-league) game per week.
  • The practice schedule will be two week day practices for the entire group together and a Sunday afternoon small sided (4v4 type games) / practice.
  • Training sessions will be directed by at least one Independent (non-parent volunteer) coach, and assisted by parent volunteers selected by the Club.
  • Games will be played on Saturdays at two pre-set, consistent times so as to minimize scheduling conflicts.
  • The players will be divided into "Blue" and "Gold" teams (and not traditional "A" and "B" teams) every two weeks by the Independent coach based on criteria determined at his/her discretion.

The cost (not including uniforms) will be approximately $400-$450/player, per season (different factors effect final cost).

For any U9 players who try out and are not selected, or who prefer to play in a less competitive format, SSC offers a U10 Farmington Valley program.
