Jersey City Soccer Association has youth travel teams from U8 through to U16. This travel program augments our recreation program that has been running for more than 40 years. We are the largest and longest running and most prestigious soccer program in Jersey City. Our home field is at Caven Point in Jersey City but we also play at Gateway, Lincoln Park West and Berry Lane fields.
Our travel teams run try-outs and roster selections in the spring and practice over the summer to prepare for the fall season. Click here for more information on our travel team tryouts.
Key aspects of our program are as follows:
Our teams train two or three times per week, with professional, paid trainers from the SEFT (School of Elite Football Training).
Volunteer coaches hold state and/or national licenses, participate in additional professional development sponsored by the association, and we select only coaches who have a passion for the game.
We keep our player costs lower than other clubs because we are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, obtain sponsors for our teams, and compute our prices only to cover our costs. It is an extremely good value.
We play in the Fall and Spring seasons in the EDP and/or Northern Counties Youth Soccer League (NCSA). In addition our home matches are played at our new turf soccer field at the Caven Point Sports Complex in Jersey City, and away matches are played locally in Hudson County and surrounding Northern NJ counties.
- Tournament play depending on each team and coaches
- Participation in NCSA Cup competition
- Winter training conducted indoors in local gyms.
We hold tryouts for our teams each year in the Spring. As we have openings for additional players, announcements will be made on the association's home page and on this page, but feel free to inquire at any time.
