U8 Festival Team Program

Thank you for your interest in our Festival Teams! Please see below for an introduction to the program.

Festival Teams are made up from our pool of house league players but include in addition to the house league schedule an extra practice per week and the entrance into at least 2 festivals (weekend tournaments) over the course of the season.

Joining a traveling Festival Team is a great  introductory environment for competitiveness and high-level skills training. Any players considering making the jump to a traveling team should be made aware of the following:

  • Traveling soccer can be more expensive than recreational soccer. It can incur costs from professional coaching,  increased practice time and travel expenses.
  • There is an increased chance for high-level development. Players looking to play in college and beyond should seriously consider joining a traveling team.
  • Participation in festivals can only be achieved through a high level of commitment from players and their families.

Registration is open to all U8 players (birth year 2015)

Interested players and parents can send inquiries to the program director
