2019/2020 TRAVEL PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Welcome to CITY!  

Our club philosophy is built on the following three core values: 

  • We are soccer people serving soccer families

  • We serve every playing level including special needs 

  • We seek the development of the whole individual.




2019/2020 Travel Program highlights:

  • The Ellicott City Soccer Club is operated by Soccer People making Soccer Decisions.
  • CiTY is committed to meet the needs of all our players and families.
  • The Travel Program is overseen by our technical directors. CiTY coaches are professional, experienced, and licensed.
  • We will place our teams in leagues and divisions that provide an appropriate level of competition. This includes Club Champions League [CCL Championship & CCL NextGen divisions EDP, CMSA, and other local leagues.
  • Each player receives a written player evaluation at the end of the fall season to be used as a benchmark to enhance players development into the spring season.
  • Our Travel Program costs are transparent and include team fees, club dues, tournament fees, technical training, and more. Click on the age-appropriate division for more information about what is included in the fees. 
  • Each team will attend either local, regional, or out of state tournaments. Events are determined by team coach and club directors. Teams may participate in additional tournaments beyond what is included in the club paid for tournaments, however, all costs with attending an additional tournament are equally split among the team's rosters. 
  • There is an opportunity during the U14 competitive year to travel abroad during the July club break. This is an "opt-in" program and the costs are incremental. Foreign travel allows players to experience different playing styles, cultures, and environments. The group creates numerous fundraising opportunities to help offset some of the costs of the trip. In July 2019, the 2005 (U14) group is going to play in the Gothia Cup- The Worth Youth Cup! 

All 2019/20 Travel Team Players (New AND Returning) must register with MSYSA.
  • Players that are NEW to Maryland State Soccer Travel need to create an account, and upload a head shot and proof of age (Birth Certificate and/or Passport); Watch video how to register 
  • Returning Players should still have all returning player account information saved, and player proof of age and head shot should still be in the account saved from last year.
