Q9: My child is entering High School, what will happen to the Legacy and Travel teams?
A9: We recognize and understand that High School sports are as much a social event as they are a sports event. For those part of a Legacy or Travel team - we encourage our players to tryout for their respective High School soccer teams.  High School soccer is traditionally a fall only sport.  So our Legacy program for High School players typically starts after High School soccer is over - in November.  With Travel soccer program occurring in the Spring time.  We will conduct tryouts for High School players both in the Spring and Fall periods.  Please reference "Tryouts" section of our website for exact dates and times of High School aged player tryouts.
