A natural extension to our in-house program, Travel Soccer is an important part of soccer in Bethel Park.  The primary goal of BPSA Travel Soccer is the total development of players from 9 to 14 years old in the game of soccer.  The program provides talented and promising players enhanced exposure to the game, the opportunity for quality coaching and the chance to compete against teams of similar talent.  Our program's objective is to field teams of the highest possible quality to represent BPSA in the PAWest District 4 South Division and possibly the PAWest State Open Soccer Tournament.  BPSA Travel Soccer teams follow the rules and regulations of PAWest, USYSA and its affiliated organizations.   Bethel Park Soccer Association Travel teams are members of US Youth Soccer and PA West District 4 - South.

What to expect from Travel Soccer:
  • Team training session are typically twice a week for 1.5 hours per session.
  • Approximately 8 match season in the fall and spring; matches are played on Sunday.
  • BPSA typically fields teams in the Under 10 thru Under 13 age groups (see age chart below).
  • Teams will play in leagues based on ability with 4 being the highest caliber of travel play. Younger teams typically start out in Division  5 or 6. Older teams assemble under guidelines set each year by working with the Travel committee
  • Teams will travel to local communities for away matches; Division 4 teams will likely travel greater distances to play against other select teams.
  • Selection to a team is based on the player's assessed skills. A skill assessment is typically held in late spring to help coaches place travel players on the appropriate skill-based teams for the fall season.
  • Roster sizes are determined for development purposes - the BPSA prefers to not 'max-out' rosters. 
  • Players are required to purchase a uniform jersey, shorts and matching socks. The cost of the uniform is typically about $50.00.
  • One or two fundraising activities per season 
  • U9 & U10 travel players should continue to play with their Saturday Flight teams and are provided free registration to Flights.
Players who wish to start in the Travel program during a spring season should contact the Registrar or the appropriate age group coach. Team rosters are limited based upon PA West guidelines.

IMPORTANT: Travel teams are formed before the previous Fall season. Additional players for the Spring season may be considered on a case by case basis.
