You may currently be familiar with our recreational program where teams are coached by volunteer parents and games are played against either other Broadview Heights teams or other recreational teams from nearby communities.
Travel soccer is the next step up. Although still a community based team, travel soccer offers a more competitive program with professional licensed coaches, an increased number of practices and a higher level of competition.
Players will practice a minimum of twice per week and games will generally be held on Sundays.
All players must try out and be selected to participate on the teams. Tryouts will conducted by independent coaches and evaluators.
