Mariner Youth Soccer

Travel Program Information


What is travel soccer?   
While Mariner is largely a recreational soccer organization, we do offer a competitive soccer program.  We hold tryouts and create teams who play competitive teams from other towns with the goal of competing at a higher level against players and teams of similar abilities.

What is the South Coast Soccer League (SCSL)?    
Mariner belongs to the South Coast Soccer League, which generally plays teams from Southeastern Massachusetts, the Cape and Islands. There are two separate seasons of soccer in the SCSL.  All the games are tracked by the league and, at the end of the spring regular season, the top teams in each grade level (grades 5-12 only) are seeded and play for a league championship. Additionally the league winner of each grade level’s first division goes to the Massachusetts Tournament of Champions (MTOC) for a three day tournament against the winners from other town competitive leagues across the state. The winner of that tournament is crowned the state champion.

What are the Responsibilities of a Fall/Spring Travel Player?

In order to participate in Fall Travel Soccer, players MUST participate in Mariner’s fall rec program as well.  Each player shall be responsible for meeting all of his or her Recreational League requirements including attending his or her Recreational practices and games or obtaining permission from his or her Recreational coach to miss a scheduled game or practice..

Spring Travel Soccer players DO NOT need to participate in the spring rec program. 

Where do we purchase our child’s uniform?
Travel uniforms are NOT included in the registration fee. Uniforms must be ordered individually by families with children. Currently we use INI for all of our travel uniform kits.

Any player who has decided not to play in the Travel League due to financial constraints should contact the President before making such a determination. The Board or the President can usually waive fees and supply uniforms due to the financial needs of an individual player. Players should be aware that the playing time rules that are in effect for Rec Soccer do not apply to Travel Soccer.
