Fall & Spring Travel Programs
Travel programs within Southbury Soccer Club are for the U9 through U19 age groups. Players are evaluated once per year each June for the following Fall/Spring seasons, and are split into multiple divisions (A, B ) for each age group based on skill level and the number of players registered for that age. A higher level of commitment is typically required for players desiring to play within Division A, which is the highest competitive level. Each division plays against comparable divisions from other towns within either the Northwest District or Southwest District of the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association.

Travel U16 & U19
The "U" in the division stands for "Under" and is a general indication of the age range for that program. All programs in Southbury Soccer Club use January 1st as the age cutoff date to determine which division is appropriate for a child. Please refer to our Age Groups page for information regarding divisions.
Placement Process & Overview:
Players are evaluated once per year in early June for the following Fall/Spring season. An overview of the process is below:
NOTE: All players who wish to play Travel soccer MUST register BEFORE the placement session. Players who do not register ahead of time are unable to participate in the placement session.
1. Early May - SSC will announce the Travel placement schedule for later in the month. Registration opens for Travel.
2. First Week of June – Travel placements are held and you can expect the following:
a. Players should arrive 15 mins before the start time to check in and receive a numbered jersey
b. We ask that parents sit back close to the parking lot and do not treat this like a practice/game and provide support or instructions. The goal is for the players to have a fun & a focused training session.
c. During the session, Everson professional coaches are utilized to direct the session and evaluate each player.
3. June/July – Rosters for each team in the age groups are formed. This is based on input from their current coaches, trainers, and the evaluation session are used to rate each player and determine team placement. This process will take some time to compile.
4. Beginning of August - Rosters are announced for all age divisions.
The 2018 Travel Placement schedule will be announced in early May.
