Where is Jeffersonville located?
When was Jeffersonville Soccer Club established?
JSC was established in 1994. While we are small in terms of club size, we are one of the more successful clubs in the league.
Do I have to live in Jeffersonville to participate?
No, there are no geographical boundaries. Currently, we have children from East Norriton, West Norriton, Norristown, Plymouth, Methacton, Springford, Reading, Philadelphia, Collegeville, and Phoenixville.
What league does Jeffersonville compete in?
We participate in the Inter-County Soccer league which is one of the larger soccer organizations in the country. Inter-county is comprised of over 500 soccer teams ranging in ages from U8 to Over-40.
Why travel soccer?
Travel soccer was developed to accommodate the players/parents that were looking for more skill development, competition, and coaching then a recreation league can offer.
Do you have experienced coaching?
Most, if not all of our coaches have played soccer in high school and/or college and have had several years of soccer coaching experience at many different levels. Our Director of Coaching holds a USSF licensing.
We also encourage our coaches to participate in coaching clinics and certification programs.
How much travel is involved?
A common misconception is that the travel is extensive. First, half of each team’s ten game season is played at home, and a majority of the away games are within a fifteen mile radius of our home field.
Where are Jeffersonville’s home fields?
Our home field for all our teams between U8 and U10 play their games at the corner of Burnside and Oakland in West Norrition Township at Oakland Park.
U11 and above play their home games at Norristown Area School District fields.
See our field page or specific details.
Is there an age range within a team?
No, children complete within their same birth year. This again is an advantage compared to most recreation programs that have age ranges of two and three years. Competing with children the same age (and size) allows for increased skill development and improved competition.
Are there tryouts?
While each team holds player evaluations, depending on the number of children registered for a particular team a tryout may be necessary.
This is my child’s first year; will he/she be behind the others?
It’s difficult to assess this without knowing the child’s individual ability or the level of the team they will be joining. Some of our teams are newly formed and are in lower divisions, while others have been together for several years and are in some of the top divisions.
Does Jeffersonville have girl’s teams?
In 2011 we established our first two all girls teams and we’re looking to increase that number year after year. If we don’t have a girl’s team in your daughter’s age grouping she is welcome to tryout for one the boys’ team’s in her same age group.
Are there different levels of competition within the league?
The divisions within the Inter-county soccer league are structured to encourage competitive play. Each age group contains several divisions. For example, the U9 boy’s age group contains six different divisions; the sixth division is for newly formed teams and as you climb from one division to the next, the level of competition increases. This again allows for individual and team development and also allows for fair and challenging competition week after week.
Do the teams play year round?
Our traditional league play runs from September to November for our U8 – U15 teams and from November to December for U16 and above teams. Many of the teams will participate in tournaments and indoor leagues throughout the year but this is not mandatory. We recognize that children play several different sports and we work with conflicts when possible.
When are games played during the regular season?
All games are played on Saturday’s and Sunday’s from September through November. A majority of the games are on Saturday.
When do practices begin for the regular season?
Most coaches begin practicing in August. We work with vacation schedules.
What about conflicts with school soccer?
Most of our children play for their school teams as well. The conflicts are usually limited and the coaches will work out a plan with each individual player.
What is included in the fee?
Uniform (Jersey, shorts, socks, practice jersey), referee fees, training fees, iInsurance, league fees (ICSL,EPYSA) team equipment, some tournament fees and additional training/off season play.
