The Traveling Team plays in the Southwest Illinois Soccer recreation league known as S.W.I.S.
This is typically a 10 game season with around half the games away to a town usually 30 to 45 minutes drive. Rides are provided by parents to players unable to get their own transportation. The home games are played at the First Christian Church soccer fields and we meet at FCC before away games. The travel team will start practicing around August 1st and their game season starts the week of August 19th. SWIS plays usually every Saturday afternoon and on some week nights. The season runs into early October.
Local & Travel Game Schedules will be planned to avoid conflict for players wishing to play in both leagues.
Registration Fees are $45 for players signing up to play in either league, and $65 to play in both leagues.
