We are currently recruiting players for a Boys U-8 Travel Soccer Team to play in the Spring of 2010. A new team will be formed and play in the Morris County Youth Soccer League.,
We are looking for players (and supportive parents) who :
- Love playing rec soccer and are willing to explore taking the game 'to the next level'
- Want professional team training
- Would be proud to represent our town against other teams in Morris County
- Are willing to commit 10 Sunday afternoons between April and June playing in a competitive 8v8 soccer game
U-8 players must have a birthday between August 1, 2001 and July 31, 2002. (League rules do not permit exceptions for U-8).
From a financial perspective, it is important to understand that our Travel Teams are self-funded. Therefore, each player can expect to pay roughly $150 per season. This is to cover League Entry fees, Referee Expenses and Professional Training. In addition, there is a per child uniform fee of roughly $100 (but this is a uniform which will generally last 4 seasons and includes multiple personalized jerseys)
We are looking forwarding to starting what we hope will be a multi-year positive experience for these players. For example, our U-12 teams will each celebrate their 100th game this year - and most of the players have been with the program since Day 1. Very few youth sport experiences offer that level of continuity, teamwork and friendship.
As Coach of our East Hanover Eagles (U12) and with two U-8 boys wanting to play, I encourage you to explore this. It has been more rewarding for my son (and myself) than I would have ever imagined when we started 5 years ago.
Feel free to contact me with questions. Even better - feel free to come cheer our U12 team on at Middle School Field this Saturday Oct 24th at our 2pm home game. It will give you an opportunity to see the game at this level and talk to some of the parents about the experience.
Please send potential players or just questions with your contact information to my home email at firstname.lastname@example.org
My cell phone number is 973-600-7560 if you'd like to discuss the program (but I ask that you please limit these calls to evenings or weekends).

Thanks in advance for your consideration ! (and my sons Christopher & Connor will definitely thank you if we can start a team !)
