Classic Travel

SOCA Classic Travel Program

The mission of the Classic travel program is to provide advanced development through a competitive game and training environment. Player development takes place through elevated commitment and competition.

Classic teams participate in the Skyline Club Soccer League. SOCA Classic teams are based in the Charlottesville and Albemarle area and compete in more regionally based divisions of the Skyline Club Soccer League.  The Classic program seeks to provide opportunity for young motivated players seeking to improve their abilities within the travel program. Opportunities for pool and guest play exist with the corresponding Premier travel teams and participation allows for team coaches and SOCA technical staff to evaluate and observe players within the club.  Advancement to the Premier level of play is determined by player ability within the given pool of players at each age group within the club.

The Charlottesville Travel program is proudly sponsored by Sentara Martha Jefferson Sports Medicine.

    Team tryouts are for U11-U19 age groups, boys and girls. The number of teams in the Classic program may vary per age group where player quantity, ability, and coaching resources dictate.
