The Swarthmore Soccer Club works through SRA to provide competitive travel soccer with fun team building. SRA fields as many teams as possible based on the number of players that try out. In 2016, we had 16 teams ranging from U9 to U17.
Tryouts for the 2017 Fall Season are finished!

Our youngest ages U9 through U13 play in the Central League. The Central League provides a more locally based travel experience than Pags or Delco. U9 and U10 play 7v7. U11 and U12 play 9v9. U13 play 11v11.
Our U14+ teams play in in Delco Soccer (Boys) and Philadelphia Area Girls Soccer (PAGS – Girls). Games are 11v11.
Spring: Players register and teams are formed after evaluations.
Summer: Each team determines its own practice schedule, generally starting in July. Some teams may participate in soccer camps.
Fall: This is our teams' primary season, starting the weekend after Labor Day, continuing through mid November. Practices continue to the end of daylight savings time. Some teams choose to participate in several tournaments throughout the season.
The league registration fee is $250 for 2017.
Each player must wear the Swarthmore Soccer Club uniform, which may be purchased separately. The cost is approximately $60.
Some teams and coaches choose to utilize trainers to aid in the development of skills and game readiness. This does incur additional fees, which can vary based on the number of players on the team and the frequency of the training sessions. The fees may range from $75-150 for the season.
In addition, some teams enter tournaments or offer end of summer soccer boot camps run by trainers. There is an additional cost to attend these and they are not mandatory.
