Ages 8 through high school
In the state of Connecticut, competitive travel soccer officially begins at U9, and is a player and parent’s first opportunity to experience the process of competitive soccer tryouts. Travel teams are formed based on number of “qualified” players available, and depending on the policy of the town, are formed as “balanced” or “ability based” teams. At the U9 through U14 age groups town travel teams play both a fall and spring season. Beginning at U15, travel soccer is only offered in the spring. Travel soccer teams compete in league play within their district, and may also elect to compete in State Cup Competition. Currently U9/U10 compete in a 7 vs. 7 format, U11/U12 compete in 9 vs. 9 format, and U13 and up compete in a 11 vs. 11 format.
