  Instructional Program:
The instructional program is a non competitive program. There are no standings and every effort will be made to teach the children the game of soccer, playing fair, and having a good time. Having fun is the top priority. Players will play a variety of positions. All players should play at least half of the game or an equal amount of time unless injured or in violation of the rules. The program takes place weekly on Saturday mornings and in some cases on one weeknight as well. Games are played on fields appropriately sized for each age group and are played largely at Turkey Brook Park. Teams are coached by Volunteer Parent Coaches who have obtained their "F" license in coaching, and are trained by professional coaches as well.
  Travel Program:
The travel program is a competitive program. Teams play in the Morris County Youth Soccer Association (MCYSA) League. Games are played against other towns mostly in the Morris County area, and are assigned by the league. Teams are formed after try outs in the Spring of each year and players are expected to participate in both the Fall and Spring seasons. Play time is determined by the Coach and equal play time is not guaranteed. Standings are kept by MCYSA. While the games are generally played to win, a large objective of the travel program is to teach soccer skills and develop a greater love for the game. Teams are coached by Volunteer Parent Coaches who have obtained their "F" license in coaching, and are trained weekly by professional coaches as well. Games are mostly played on Sunday afternoons.
  Premier Program:
The Premier Program is our most competitive program. Teams play under the EDP or NPL leagues, and games could be played anywhere in the tri-state area, but are mostly within a 1 1/2 - 2 hour driving distance. Teams are formed after tryouts in the spring of each year, and the season is considered fall through spring, incorporating indoor training/play in the winter months. Play time is determined by the Coach, and games are played to win. Equal play time is not guaranteed. Premier teams are coached by paid, professional coaches and have a licensed Parent Volunteer Coach assigned to each team as well. Teams will train on 3 weeknights each week and games can be played at any time over the weekend, and occasionally during a weeknight.

Program Divisions


The following diagram shows the age requirements for each of the divisions within the Instructional, Travel, and Premier Programs for the 2019/2020 season.  If you find your child's age on the blue timeline then draw a vertical line you'll see the divisions that your child is eligible for.  The Instructional Program is organized by grade.  Parents should register their child based on the grade the child will be in during the school year.  For example, if your child is in 1st grade for the 2018/2019 academic year they should be registered for Division 7.  The Travel and Premier Programs are organized by age groups.  Parents are encouraged to register their child in the age appropriate division.  For example, if your child falls within the U10 age group defined by NJ Youth Soccer they should be registered for the U10 division of either the Travel or Premier Program.
