Travel players Grades 2-5 cannot play Larchmont rec soccer
Larchmont Soccer Club has strengthened the rec only policy, and we will not allow travel players to play recreational soccer in Grades 2-5 in the Fall of 2018. Former travel players who are no longer playing travel (for ANY team) are welcome.
In the past we had the policy that we "strongly discourage" travel players from playing recreational soccer. In the Fall of 2017 we found this was not effective, and that the travel players that were on a recreational team dominated the play and gave those teams an unfair advantage. Teams that were not assigned a travel player were at a distinct disadvantage.
We have therefore strengthened our policy, and we will not allow travel players to play recreational soccer in Grades 2-5.
While we understand this is disappointing to the few travel players who want to play rec, it is far fairer for the 675 recreational players. We feel the travel players in practicing twice a week and playing a travel game on Sunday have plenty of opportunity to play soccer, and the rec players should have their own chance to play.
