Chatham United Travel Soccer - Program Overview
The CU Travel program is for Chatham players who are interested in playing soccer at a highly competitive level with teams throughout central New Jersey. The program follows the US Soccer curriculum using professionally certified coaches and is designed to constantly challenge players by:
- Developing the technical skills and thorough understanding of game tactics/strategy necessary to compete at an advanced level.
- Creating a desire to excel in a competitive environment
- Developing a spirit of teamwork and sportsmanship
- Establishing a life-long passion for the game
Players in the travel program are evaluated and selected for teams based on assessments by their coaches from the previous season and tryouts conducted in early Spring by independent evaluators. All players must participate in tryouts to be considered for placement on a team and returning players are not guaranteed a spot on a team.
The CU Travel program is a multi-season commitment. The Fall season is extensive practices, league games and tournaments between late August and mid-November. The Winter season teams may organize optional indoor practices, Futsol, and indoor tournaments. The Spring will return to 2 practices a week, league games, and some teams may opt to enter Spring tournaments.
