TRAVEL PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Western Wisconsin Travel program provides players the opportunity to play competitive soccer. Traveling soccer requires a greater commitment than recreational soccer. The travel program provides quality licensed paid coaches, academy and team training, and year round training.

Travel Program Timeline Overview:

  • Tryouts are Mid July for High School Girls, late July/early August for all other teams. 
  • Teams are announced early August. 
  • Practices begin mid August.   
  • League games are played through the Twin Cities Soccer League (TCSL) in fall and spring/summer.  
  • The Fall TCSL league consists of 6 games and runs from early September to early to mid October.  Games are played on our home fields in Hudson or in the Metro area.  
  • Indoor Training is held at Catalyst and runs mid November and through April (1-2 times per week). 
  • Teams participate in Futsal or other indoor leagues in winter. 
  • Outdoor practices resume in mid April (about 2 times per week). 
  • The Spring/Summer TCSL League consists of 10 games and runs from early May to the end of June/early July.  Games are played on our home fields in Hudson or in the Metro area.

Tournaments:

All teams will play in Hudson's Rivertown Classic in the Spring and at least 2 other club sponsored tournaments per year.  Teams can choose to participate in additional tournaments at the expense of the team.

Player Evaluation and Team Placement (Tryouts):

All players wanting to be placed on a team must register for tryouts.  If your child is unable to attend tryouts, please contact Casey Holm to make other arrangements.  For dates and times of this year's tryouts, please visit the Tryout FAQ page.

Players are not guaranteed a roster position on any specific team regardless of age or previous team placement.

Financial Assistance:

WW realizes that while our travel costs are relatively low compared to other organizations in the area, there are instances where they may place a financial burden on families.   Our goal is to provide everyone an opportunity to play soccer.  Thanks to our sponsors and fundraising efforts, WW has​ a great financial assistance program.   If your family would like to complete a financial assistance application please do so at https://www.hudsonsoccer.com/page/show/5092512-financial-assistance.  This application is completely confidential, and only reviewed by two Hudson Soccer board members. 

Volunteer: Hudson Soccer is a volunteer based organization and all programs are supported through volunteers. Traveling program parents are required to perform 12 hours of service, per player, with a family maximum of 20 hours, per soccer year (August to July). If you are unable to volunteer, a $480 ($800 family max) non-volunteer fee is required.

Refunds & Placement:

Any player who registers and is placed on a team and then withdraws will forfeit at least the $75 administrative fee. (Exceptions for illness and injury will always be considered). 

WW will do everything in is power to find a home for all players but if any player is not placed on a team they will receive a full refund.

Please refer to the refund policy linked here for details.
