The Jaguars United Soccer Association's travel program is recreational as well, but unlike the inhouse program, these teams participate against teams from other clubs within the PA West South District. Note: While a majority of our teams play at the Division 6 or Division 5 levels, we do have some travel teams participating in Division 4, which is deemed competitive and may include travel anywhere within the PA West jurisdiction including Erie, State College and West Virginia. While playing time is not guaranteed in Division 4, we strongly encourage those coaches to ensure that all players on their roster get to participate in each game. Players in Divisions 5 and 6 are required to play at least half of each game.
All age appropriate children wishing to participate in our travel soccer program must participate in one of our evaluation sessions. These annual sessions are held at the end of each spring session. These sessions are not try outs, but rather an aid in team formation under certain circumstances such as roster size limits.
Evaluation sessions help to determine a players’ readiness both physical and mental, to participate in travel soccer. Some of the areas looked at during the sessions include but are not limited to: ball control, passing, shooting, heading, game sense, positional play, etc. Note: Individual evaluation results are not made public.
Attendance at an evaluation session does not guarantee placement on a travel soccer team.
We strive to provide every child wishing to play travel soccer the opportunity to do so. However, certain circumstances such as roster size limits can prevent this. Therefore,if your child is not placed on a travel team, we will automatically switch your registration to our in house program and refund the cost difference.
The travel soccer season includes the fall , winter (training only) and spring sessions. Selected players choosing to not participate in the fall session, are not guaranteed a roster spot in the spring.
Please note that PA West has mandated the use of a new system, which may cause changes to the formation and registration of our travel teams. Please check back for updates that may be forthcoming.
All players who have participated in an evaluation session will be notified of team placement, either travel or in house if necessary.
Those wishing to play travel soccer must provide the following information at the evaluation sessions or as part of their on line registration.
-Copy of your birth certificate to the coach. DO NOT UPLOAD TO YOUR ACCOUNT!
-Upload a photograph of the player when registering on line.
-Play up waiver if required (available at http://www.pawest-soccer.org/misc/forms.htm)
-Jersey and short sizes
-Two or three jersey number requests
Travel players are responsible for the cost of their uniforms. Uniforms should be ordered at the time of the players on line registration.
