Travel soccer is typically a full-year program that offers players with opportunities for highly competitive soccer training and games, which requires a higher level of commitment by the players (and their parents).
Time commitments do vary among teams based on the competitive levels and interests of the players and parents. In general terms:
Nationals encourages players to participate in other activities, including other sports. We do ask that all players attend all of their Nationals training and games. This is important to achieve the best results possible individually as players and as a team.
We understand that there will be occasions that prevent a player from participating in training and/or games. We ask that this be communicated immediately to the coach so that alternative plans can be defined. For example, if a player cannot participate in a game, the coach will need to identify a player from another team that will be available to assist your team.
