THE CONVAL SOCCER CLUB TRAVEL PROGRAM
What is each season like?
CVSC fields teams in both the Fall (September to November) and Spring (April to June) seasons in the New Hampshire Soccer League (NHSL). Each season typically consists of:
- Seven or eight weekend games (some home, some away)
- Two weeknight practices per week
- Some teams may opt to enter a tournament (usually on Columbus Day weekend in the Fall and Memorial Day weekend in the Spring). Some tournaments may be covered by the registration fee but some might be an additional cost.
What are the time and cost commitments?
In terms of time, players are expected to make every effort to attend practices and games (with the understanding that sometimes conflicts happen). In the event of a conflict, players should notify their coaches in advance. Practices typically last between 60 and 90 minutes (depending on age level and scheduling considerations). Home games are played at Moose Brook Park in Hancock, NH or Peterborough Elementary School and away games can be played anywhere from a 45 to 90 minute (or more) drive away.
In terms of financial commitments, we strive to keep the registration cost low for our families. Costs can fluctuate from season to season, but generally run $170-$250 depending on the team,
In certain cases, financial aid and scholarships are available. Contact us for more information.
All players must also purchase a uniform through the team store with their name and number on the back. Players are required to order at least:
• Navy team jersey
• White team jersey
• Navy team shorts (Optional for U8-U10)
• Navy team socks (Optional for U8-U10)
Most tournament registration fees are covered by the club. Transportation costs are not covered by the club.
What do the age groups (for example, “U12”) mean?
The NHSL follows the US Soccer Birth Year and Season Matrix. According the Matrix, a player born in a given year would be eligible to play in the corresponding team, ie. U-9. Players are able to “play up” but cannot “play down” Into a lower age group.
Where are the home games played?
Home games take place at Moose Brook Park in Hancock, NH or Peterborough Elementary School.
