Are there different age groups?

The men’s Div I league consists of players currently in college or career individuals who have the ability to play at a higher level but not professionally. Our team will be categorized as Professional Development in order to make sure the college players keep their NCAA eligibility in place. The league minimum age allowed is 16, the average age nationwide is 25.

If selected, what kind of training, match play is expected?

Training will be provided 2-3 times a week depending on the availability of the players and space. If we are stuck at the SportsPlex training due to COVID, we’ll practice Monday & Friday 8-9:30 every week with a bi-weekly visit to one of the Syracuse facilities to get some large scale field time.Match play will start at the end of April for our spring season and will run 10 weeks long consisting of 5 home games and 5 away.

16 years and older and US Citizen

What kind of financial commitment is expected from the players?

The only financial commitment is the tryout fee. After that, SouthJeff FC covers all other expenses. The uniforms and equipment will be issued and returned to the club based on selections. The players will have an option to buy their uniforms if they intend to keep them. All travel and other league and tournament play is paid for by SouthJeff FC.
