Travel Program

Rivertowns is fortunate to have complementary youth soccer organizations serving the range of players in our community -- Rivertowns AYSO has recreational and special needs programs and Rivertowns United FC offers a competitive travel program.

Rivertowns United fields teams from U9 through U19. Our travel teams are competitive across multiple divisions of the Westchester Youth Soccer League (WYSL) and the EDP -- specifically, New York Club Soccer League (NYCSL).

Dedicated professional trainers help elevate individual and team skill levels, alongside committed parent volunteer coaches. Our teams compete at appropriately competitive tiers of league play. Our coaches promote a positive approach to player and team development.

We strive to promote love and respect for the beautiful game of soccer.

Season Dates

Travel games run September through November in the fall, and  March/April through June in the spring. There are generally no league games over holiday weekends, although some teams participate in tournaments.

Joining a Travel Team

Team formation happens after player evaluations are held in the spring. Dates are announced on our website and through email to our current and past registrants in AYSO and travel as well as shared on social media.

After teams are formed, depending on the age group, there may be limited team openings.

We welcome you to contact us after the tryouts date has passed -- please email [email protected], being sure to include your player's birth year and gender if you are interested in finding out if there are opportunities at your player's age level.

Team Coaching at Rivertowns

Rivertowns United considers player development, volunteer abilities and availability, and team needs when working with team families to determine the approach to coaching each team.

Teams generally fall into one of these models:

-- Expert parent coach training model  -- team trainings and games are coached by parent coaches whose training and soccer expertise are on par with professional youth coaches

-- Integrated training model --  team trainings are coached by both professional youth coaches and trained parent coaches; parent coaches coach the games with occasional pro-coach attendance

-- Professional training model -- team trainings and games are coached by professional youth coaches youth coaches

Rivertown United's longstanding relationship with the NYCFC Youth Coaching organization means the club is served by highly-trained professional soccer coaches whose training and knowledge of the game is focused specifically on working with youth athletes. The pricing of each model differs based on the usage of professional trainers.
