Fall & Spring Travel Programs
Travel programs within Pomperaug Soccer Club are for the U9 through U19 age groups. Players are evaluated once per year each June for the following Fall/Spring seasons, and are split into multiple divisions (A - Sunday Game Days usually, B - Saturday Game Days usually) for each age group based on skill level and the number of players registered for that age. A higher level of commitment is typically required for players desiring to play within Division A, which is the highest competitive level. Each division plays against comparable divisions from other towns within either the Northwest District or Southwest District of the Connecticut Junior Soccer Association.

The "U" in the division stands for "Under" and is a general indication of the age range for that program. The Pomperaug Soccer Club follows US Soccer guidelines and uses January 1st as the age cutoff date to determine which division is appropriate for a child. Please refer to our Age Groups page for information regarding divisions.
Placement Process & Overview:
** FALL 2022 Placement Session Schedule posted below. **
Players are evaluated once per year in early June for the following Fall/Spring season. This session is used in addition to information from the previous season. An overview of the process is below:
NOTE: All players who wish to play Travel soccer MUST register BEFORE the placement session. Players who do not register ahead of time are unable to participate in the placement session.
1. Early to Mid-May - Registration opens for the Fall season & the PSC will announce the Travel placement schedule for early June.
2. First or Second Week of June – Travel placements are held and you can expect the following:
a. Players should arrive 10 mins before the start time to check in and receive a numbered jersey
b. We ask that parents sit back close to the parking lot and do not treat this like a practice/game and do not provide support or instructions. The goal is for the players to have a fun & a focused training session.
c. During the session, Everson professional coaches are utilized to direct the session and evaluate each player. The club switched from paper forms to using an evaluation app on mobile devices called Team Genius several seasons ago. This platform helps with the data collection process and creating teams.
3. June/July – Rosters for each team in the age groups are formed. This is based on input from their current coaches, & Everson trainers of previous seasons, along with the evaluation session to rate each player and determine team placement. This process will take some time to compile.
4. Beginning of August - Rosters are announced for all age divisions.
