Travel Soccer

What is Travel Soccer?

Travel soccer offers a more competitive level of soccer than Lebo Cup. Travel soccer starts at the U9 age level, normally 3rd grade, and can continue through high school. MLSA Travel teams are open only to Mt. Lebanon residents. 

Travel soccer is a FULL YEAR's COMMITMENT. Travel teams generally play teams from other communities in southwestern PA. Teams play BOTH FALL AND SPRING seasons, typically 8 Sunday afternoons per season. The fall season generally starts at the end of August and continues through the first week of November. The spring season generally starts at the end of March and continues through June. Teams have evening practices twice a week in the fall and once a week in the spring. 

Selection to a travel team occurs through a competitive process involving a tryout. Not all players who try out will be offered a place on a team. MLSA travel teams are newly formed every year. All players wishing to play travel soccer must tryout every year. Playing on a travel team does not guarantee a player a roster spot for the following year. Tryouts for travel teams normally occur in May for the upcoming fall/spring seasons. The exact dates and more detailed information about the tryouts will be posted on this website in March. Players will be notified whether they are being offered a roster spot by the end of June. 

What benefits does Travel Soccer offer?

For several years now, the MLSA has partnered with U.K. International Soccer - a nationally based professional training company.  Travel players receive at least one team practice per week during the season with a UK trainer.  Many of these trainers also work with the area's top club teams.  Trainer to player ratios are smaller than those offered in our Lebo Cup program.  Travel players through u13 will benefit from this resource.

All of our coaches for Travel are required to hold a US Soccer coaching license.  Many in our ranks hold the national E license, while others hold higher distinctions. The minimum required license if the F license.

Matches played throughout the league are supervised by USSF certified referees.  All travel game referees must hold this level of certification.
