Travel Soccer Program

Birth Years: 2013-2008
Play Level: Competitive
Cost: $135/session, plus uniform
Practices: 2 per week
Games: 1 per week
Tournaments: TBD

Our Travel program is a competition for boys and girls ages 8 to 15. NCSC travel teams are birth year based teams playing in Ohio Travel Soccer League (OHTSL) with other North East Ohio community based clubs. We do not hold tryouts or cut players from our community teams but we recommend players with previous soccer experience for this program.

The NCSC travel program is focused on player development. Our coaches are committed to a fun and development focused training and game atmosphere. The teams are placed in divisions within the league where they will be competitive but challenged throughout the season. Each game is a showcase of skills and lessons learned from practice in a competitive environment. We do take select teams to area tournaments, at an additional cost, based on the team's development and readiness.

The commitment for travel is ten weeks per outdoor season and two eight week sessions in the winter. Outdoor (Fall and Spring) each team has two practices per week and an eight game league schedule. The games are four home and four away mostly on Sunday afternoons or early evenings. The four away games will mostly be within a 30 minute drive of North Canton. Teams competing in division 1 or 2 of their age groups will have further drives due to the competitive nature of those divisions.

Travel uniforms are all ordered through at an additional cost. Once registration is closed, new players will be assigned numbers. will send you an email to purchase your uniform with the proper number. Returning players will only need to purchase a uniform if they outgrow, lose or damage their existing uniforms. Returning players can order uniforms anytime since their number is already in the system. Read the Uniform page for more information

Learning Objectives:

  • Ongoing skill development within a competitive landscape.
  • Utilize the skills learned at the practice within a game situation.
  • Develop a team mentality.
  • Learn attacking and defending concepts that are age appropriate
  • Develop well rounded players with strong fundamentals and knowledge of the game.
  • Focus on quick decisive decision making.

Middle School ID Program

The Middle School ID Program is designed to benefit the athletes who play at a higher level of soccer or other sport in which the time commitment of the traditional travel program is too much. This program allows those 7th and 8th graders to still practice and play together on a one day a week basis. Practices will take place on Sunday evenings from 6:00-7:30pm at Hoover Park with a minimum of 4 games also likely to be Sunday evenings. We will also look to enter a tournament based on which has the highest player availability.
