FAQ About West Seneca Travel Soccer
Costs and Registration Fees
The Registration Fee for the 2017 Season is $205. For the 2017 Season, players will be purchasing their own jerseys directly, so the cost of the jerseys will be backed out of the Registration fee. West Seneca Travel Soccer teams will be wearing Nike jerseys. There is a two-year cycle for our jerseys, so what was purchased for the 2017 jersey will be used again for the 2018 season. Players do not need to purchase a new jersey, unless they decide on their own that they need a new size or a fresher/cleaner kit!
Nike Jerseys - two-year cycle
West Seneca Travel Teams will be wearing Nike jerseys beginning in 2017. We will have an arrangement with Nike and soccer.com to guarantee a two-year cycle for our jerseys, meaning that you will not be required to purchase a new jersey every season (as long as last year's still fits!)
Jerseys must be purchased by each player directly at the West Seneca Travel Soccer Online Store.
Required kit includes a Sky Blue Nike jersey, Nike shorts and Nike socks. (Women's cut will be available for our girls teams).
Optional kit: Some coaches will require players to purchase a Training T-shirt. Most teams prefer all players to have a common warm-up and backpack. All such items are available at the Online Store.
Once a player has made a Travel Roster, you must complete the on-line registration. You can register on-line here.
All players must be registered and paid for the 2018 season before they can practice or train with their team.
It is the Club's Policy that Registration fees are not refundable for any reason.
West Seneca Travel Soccer intends to keep teams age-appropriate at the U8, U9, U10 and U11 age levels beginning with the 2017 season. Existing teams will have the option of staying together and playing in the age group appropriate for that team's oldest players.
A player's age group is now determined by their Birth Year.
Age-appropriate team formation is the result of changes to the age matrix by U.S. Youth Soccer.
West Seneca Travel teams play in the BWNYJSL league. [Click here for details about BWNYJSL].
BWNYJSL is made up of local soccer clubs in Erie County (and a few in Niagara County). The "travel" involved generally means going to Orchard Park, Elma, Amherst, Clarence, etc. There is very limited travel involved in league games.
Minimum Age for Travel Players
7-year olds are not able to participate on a Travel Team in the BWNYJSL league. There is no leeway or discretion available to West Seneca Travel Soccer on this rule. This is pursuant to a rule enforced by the league (see BWNYJSL Policy 3(c)).
Scholarships and Hardship Waivers
Scholarships and/or waiver of a portion of the Registration Fee will be considered for West Seneca Travel Players. Please call or email the Director of Travel Soccer, Mark Molloy, to request a waiver or to nominate a player for a scholarship.
