Beach FC's Travel Lite program is for players ages U10 through U19 having an intermediate to advanced skill level who are seeking Travel Level competition without the full-blown Travel level commitment both in time and finances.
Travel Lite teams are generally promoted from our Advanced program.
What can I expect to get out of the Travel Lite program?
Beach FC's Travel Lite program is nestled between the Advanced program and the Travel Program. The Travel Lite program is designed for the player who wants the travel experience but without the full-blown financial and time commitment of being part of a travel team. The Travel Lite program is relatively new compared to other Beach FC programs but has shown impressive growth year over year. Additionally, Travel Lite exposes players to what the next level entails from travel league competition, tournament participation, guest playing opportunities, and more director/club over the site. Often times Travel Lite teams are formed from those teams that have outgrown the Advanced program; sometimes new Travel Lite teams are formed based on the evaluated skill level of a group of players. The Travel Lite program is a great environment for volunteer coaches and players to fine-tune some of the successes they have found at lower levels of competition while seeking more pathways for development with greater collaboration with the Travel program.
