Registration for Winter & Spring Travel Tryouts Now OPEN

Registration is now OPEN for tryouts for our upcoming Winter and Spring travel soccer programs. Registration is FREE, but mandatory. Click here to begin registration.

The tryouts will occur on Sunday, October 18th between 1:00-5:00 PM at Panther Park
U10- 1:00-2:00
U12- 2:15-3:15
U14- 3:30-4:30

Each age group will be observed by Red Bull Academy trainers for one hour, and based on their assessment, the teams will be picked. (More details on the format of the session to come soon.)

  • There is no limit to the number of players who can try out, but only one team of 12 players will make it, per age group and gender:
    • U10 (3rd-4th grade) Boys and Girls teams
    • U12 (5th-6th grade) Boys and Girls teams
    • U14 (7th-8th grade) Boys and Girls teams
  • This is a commitment to attend each game, practice, etc. during this time
  • For winter, we will compete at the Soccer Palace in West Orange again. We learned a lot from our first time there, and are more prepared this time.
  • For spring, we will play in the Morris County Youth Soccer Association (http://www.mcysa.org/). This will include teams from our area and some that will be up to an hour drive away. Consider this when you think about joining the team.
    • We have our application submitted and have had a positive response from the league so far. Their process is to review (10/1), then vote (11/1)
  • Travel Costs
    The final details on price are still being finalized, but roughly $250-$350/player who play in both Winter and Spring. This includes:
    • Home and away uniforms.
    • Entry into both Spring and Winter travel soccer programs.
    • Spring training by the Red Bull Academy trainers

Fall Soccer Explained

Where/when do I register for soccer in the fall?
Registration for Fall soccer is now closed.

What ages are eligible?
U5- U14 (Pre-K – 8th grade)

Do you play other teams/towns?
U5-U6 – fun age-appropriate activities + small-sided scrimmages
U7-U8 – age-appropriate training + small-sided “internal” league
U9-U14 – Local travel as part of the West Essex Youth Soccer Association (WEYSA)

Are there tryouts for U9-U14?
No, this is a recreation league that Cedar Grove has participated in for many years. The level of play is quite competitive, and comparable to our collective skill level. You will still see great soccer.

Do they play on a big field with big goals?
The US Soccer Association has instructed that U9-U12 play on small-sided fields in 8v8 games. Goals are a little smaller than regulation. U13-U14 play on a full regulation size field. U9-U14 are officiated games as well.

Is Cedar Grove joining Northern Counties or another travel league for the fall?
No. We are finalizing our roadmap which leads us to travel. We hope (not confirmed) to host tryouts for travel teams in late fall for the Spring 2016 travel season.

If my child joined another travel club, can they still participate in the Fall WEYSA league?
Yes. You may have some conflicting games, but we have coached many children who do both successfully.

How can I help?
We do need your help! We are in the process of creating a full list of responsibilities we need help fulfilling. Once we have that, we will be in touch for help. This goes beyond the coaches on the field. Scheduling, club passes, merchandise, equipment, photography, media, an entire travel board….and more.

Please reach out with any questions or concerns that we may have missed. We want to clear any confusion, but we don't know unless you ask.
