The club select, or travel soccer program, is meant for those players who
are more serious about soccer. For those players whose skills are improving
and want to experience more competition, travel offers a more competitive
environment than the recreational play of in-house teams. Playing against
a wider set of teams with a higher level of skill, teamwork and dedication
will expand the players view of what soccer is and what the player can
be. Players practice twice a week and play against teams made of the best
players from other nearby clubs. Travel players in Beekman receive additional
professional training, attend tournaments outside of the regular season, and
are the foundation of the Beekman Cup.
Teams are formed in the spring after tryouts are held. Players 7
and older can (should) consider trying out.
The Travel teams for the Fall /Spring season are formed and the schedules
are published on the East
Hudson Youth Soccer League web site.
Schedules have historically been formed using the following guidelines:
- If 6 teams are in your division, you play the 5 other teams twice for
a 10 week season (total of 10 games), no byes.
- If 7 teams are in your division, you play 4 teams once, 2 teams twice
(total of 8 games), have 1 or 2 byes and a 9 week season. This doesn't even
add up and is messy. The league tries not to form any divisions with 7 teams.
- If 8 teams are in your division, you play 5 teams once, 2 teams twice
(total of 9 games) for a 9 week season with no byes.
- If 9 teams are in your division, you play the other 8 teams once (total
of 8 games) for a 9 week season and have 1 bye week.
- If 10 teams are in your division, you play the other 9 teams once (total
of 9 games) for a 9 week season with no byes.
