Note on Recreational vs. Travel:
South End Soccer has offered recreational league (“in-house”) play since 2008. We give any child the opportunity to play, every registered player is placed on a team (space allowing, waitlists may apply). Our goal is to break down any barrier for urban youth to play soccer, thus our recreational league is free. We fund the program through donations of parent, community members, businesses and organizations.
Travel play began in 2014 and we do not currently have the ability to place all interested players on a travel team. Travel team players are selected based on an assessment process of skill, commitment level and positive attitude. We don’t require any fees to play but do have a suggested donation for those whom are able, we appreciate the donation to help with costs of premiere uniforms, coach training and league fees. Any donation amounts are greatly appreciated and every child invited to a travel team will play regardless of abliity to donate.
We have grown tremendously since founding in 2008, and we greatly appreciate your continued support as we create opportunities for urban youth to get on the field and create pathways for youth to play at the skill and commitment level best for them.
How can I get involved?
South End Soccer works ONLY because of our donors and volunteers. Many thanks to all those who give their time, support and hard work!
The generous donations of funding and time of parents, community members, local businesses and organizations make it possible for neighborhood youth to get on the field without fees or participant charges.
Donations & sponsorships provide the funding for registration and insurance with Mass Youth Soccer, equipment, uniforms, coach training and more. Coaches are provided training and support to deliver the highest quality of training to our players.
