Founded in 1980, the Montgomery Travelers Soccer Club's mission is to develop and maintain programs that provide our youth the opportunity to learn and enjoy the game, to develop age appropriate skills, and to progress to play advanced levels of soccer. To accomplish this mission requires developmental goals, dedicated volunteers, committed players with potential, and adequate resources and facilities. It also requires qualified coaches who understand the game and who have the ability to teach soccer using recommended coaching methodologies and training techniques. Success will be measured by the progression of our youth and our teams against Club-level development goals by age and against appropriate levels of competition. The philosophy of the Montgomery Travelers Soccer Club is to develop players for the long term. Development and training are focused in four areas: technical, tactical, physical, and psychological. Players are encouraged to start training at younger ages and to play several positions. Training and player development must be age and ability appropriate. Coaches must continue to improve their knowledge and ability to teach by attending clinics and by obtaining advanced coaching credentials.
