Travel Program

Travel Team Evaluations (Fall 2022-Spring 2023)

The Great Neck Soccer Club, one of Long Island’s premier soccer programs, has been showcasing competitive boys and girls travel soccer teams since 2000.  Starting the week of May 23rd, the Club will be holding evaluations for our Fall 2022/Spring 2023 Girls and Boys Travel Soccer Teams.  The Club's intention with these evaluations is to add travel ready players to our Girls and Boys Travel Teams.  

HOW DO I REGISTER?

Any player NOT on a current GNSC Travel Team roster, who wishes to be evaluated for a GNSC Travel Team, must be registered on or before May 22, 2022 in order to participate in the evaluations.   

All registration must be done online by clicking on the REGISTER TODAY banner at the top of this page, entering the requested information, and paying the $10 registration fee.

WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE GROUP FOR MY CHILD?
Travel Soccer Teams are broken up by age groups (ex: U8, U9, U10), which are based on a player’s birth year (ex: 2015, 2014, 2013 etc.).  Determining the age group your son/daughter would qualify to play in this Fall is simple:  Year Season Ends (2023) – Your Son/Daughters Birth Year = Eligible Age Group.  For example, if your son/daughter is born in 2013 he/she would qualify to play on a U9 team this Fall:  2023 (Year Season Ends) – 2013 (Player’s Birth Year) = U10 Age Group.   

The Club reserves the right to combine age groups (as needed) to ensure there are a sufficient number of players.
