ALL SPRING 2014 TRAVEL PLAYERS must have registered and paid online by February 15th at 5pm.
Travel registration fees are not refundable so please insure that your child will definitely be playing if you register them. If you registered your child and they decide not to play the fee is not refundable. (Fees will only be refunded if your player did not tryout last spring and a roster spot cannot be located for your player.)
PLEASE READ THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS BELOW BEFORE EMAILING QUESTIONS.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can anyone play travel?
A: Travel teams are for U10-U19 age groups (there is also a group of U9 players playing - however a coach's invitation is required to play on those teams). If you have a U10-U14 player who is interested in playing travel - travel tryouts for the Fall 2013/Spring 2014 playing year were conducted LAST spring. Teams were formed based on the scores from those tryouts. If your player did not tryout but would still like to play this season - you are able to register them for travel - however, they are not guaranteed placement on a team. If there is an open roster spot on a B or C team in their age group they may be able to play - players without a tryout score are unable to play on the top A teams. We will no know if there is an open roster spot until after registration closes on Feb 15th. If there is not an available roster spot, your payment will be credited to our inhouse program and the difference refunded.
Q: Do I still have to register my player if they played on a fall travel team?
A: YES. Travel players must register and pay the registration fee every season.
Q: Do rosters remain the same between the fall and the spring?
A: For the most part - rosters do remain the same. There are exceptions in that some players play fall only or spring only and some rosters to have changes between season. It is completely dependent on the age group and the players that register each season.
Q: What if my player does not make a team and I register them?
A: We make every effort to find slots for every player wanting to play travel, however it is not always possible in every age group and is based solely on the number of players committing to play, maximum and minimum roster sizes needing to be met, etc. If your player does not make a team, you will receive a credit toward our inhouse program and refunded the difference between inhouse and travel registration fees.
Q: Why aren't teams allowed to stay together from year to year?
A: Please remember that we are a youth development program. Our players are very young respectively and all of them develop and improve at different paces. Each year we hold tryouts to insure that there is a fair and independent evaluation of all of the travel players in the league. Our goal each season is to field the most competitive teams possible to represent our leage and district throughout Western PA in travel play. To keep teams together year to year deprives those players who have worked to improve their skills from playing on the top ranked teams.
Q: What if I have more than one child playing, how will I get the multi-child discount?
A: Travel registrations are not eligible for multi-child discounts. Travel players in age groups U9-U14 may play in our inhouse program for free when playing travel in the same season. If you are registering your travel player for inhouse as well, please make sure you select your Travel program first, click save and then select your inhouse program. If you select your inhouse program first, you will pay full price for inhouse instead of receiving it for free with your travel registration
Q: What about ordering Travel Uniforms?
A: Following the announcement of travel team rosters, information will come through your coach on how to order full travel uniform sets or individual replacement pieces.
