The mission of the Methacton United travel soccer program is clear and concise:
As a club, we work toward this goal with one guiding principle: help young players fall in love with the game. If we can do this at the start of their journey and captivate them with the experience, we vastly improve their chances of developing.
Travel soccer is more competitive than the intramural variety, and no doubt requires a greater commitment from both the player and parent. However, the game can be no less inspiring and the training no less fun.
Our program at Methacton United is unique from other travel sports, such as baseball and basketball. When players want to play, when players want to learn, we provide them the developmentally appropriate opportunity to do so. At every age group, we have teams that span ability levels, all driven by a love of the game and a desire to be better.
Full-year costs for our travel program generally range from $800 to $1200 per player, depending on the teams level of play, the number of tournaments they enter, and their winter and spring plans. Our first teams will tend toward the top of this range, while our second and third teams will tend toward the middle and lower end.
