Travel Team Formation and Schedules:


u9 and older Travel Teams are declared to the PA West League by March 1, 2019.


We must submit rosters by March 15, 2019 to the league, so registering early is vital!


As players register, they are placed in the program of their YEAR OF BIRTH--for example, a player born in 2009 is automatically placed in the u9 group, per league rules.


We begin forming rosters and assigning coaches up until the Team Declaration Deadline. Rosters are formed by the DOC along with the Travel Group Coordinators during the open registration period.


Players may request to be moved "up" an age, and per DOC and Travel Coordinator approval this may be possible case by case.


As Teams and Rosters are finalized, coaches will communicate practice schedules, which are weeknights at Osborne Field.


The League sends us our game schedules, once that is received by late August, it will be communicated.


Games begin around March 30, but possibly as early as March. 23, and end by the weekend of June 1. Practices usually begin 1-2 weeks prior to games so March. 18 week, depending on weather an field conditions.


Specific team details and schedules are communicated by SAS using the Team Snap mobile app, which is a service provided to families. Once placed on a team, you will receive and email inviting you to join the SAS Team Snap for that team.
