Registration for the spring travel season of the Northern Chautauqua Soccer Association (NCSA) remains open until Friday, April 6. The travel club known as NC Concord competes in the Southern Tier Travel Soccer League (STTSL). This year, the club will field teams in the U10 Co-ed, U12, and U14, as well as U17 Boys and Girls divisions.
Players are still needed for the U10 Co-ed, U12 Girls and Boys divisions, and the U14 Boys division. Player openings in the U14 Girls, U17 Girls and U17 Boys division are available on a limited basis.
Registration fees are $85 for the U10 co-ed and U12 division and $100 for U14 and U17 divisions. There is a $60 uniform fee for new players only. Need based scholarships are available on a limited basis with forms available online at www.myncsa.com. Mail or drop off completed forms with payment at 103 Gardner St.,Fredonia, N.Y. 14063.
The STTSL was established in 1991 to fill a need for a more competitive program than the summer recreational model for committed, talented youth soccer players. Teams from Chautauqua County participate as well as teams from Erie and Cattaraugus counties and Bradford, Pennsylvania. Last year, both the NC Concord U14 Boys and U14 Girls teams won their division championship games held at the Town of Ellery Park and hosted by the Bemus Area Youth Soccer Organization (BAYSO).
Bi-weekly practices for travel soccer begin indoors in March and outdoors as soon as the weather permits. Games are typically held on Sunday afternoons beginning in early May and concluding with the playoff tournament at the end of June. Plans are under way for all NC Concord teams to participate in a tournament in June.
Highlights of the STTSL include the STAR program, in which a patch is awarded to one player per team each game for the star qualities of Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Attitude and Respect. STAR patch recipients are selected by their opponents at the end of each game. In addition, the league has created a zero tolerance policy for players, coaches and spectators in order to promote positive interactions with officials and everyone attending a game. To learn more about the STTSL visit www.sttsl.org.
