Travel Program 2004 & Younger

About SUSC Travel Program

In years past, teams from the Eastern Shore traveled across the bridge to play games with the hope of giving a respectable performance. Wins were celebrated but not expected. In the last two years, Salisbury United SC has changed that dynamic. 

Our Girls and Boys teams have now captured multiple EDP league championships, prestigious Bethesda Invitational, Jefferson Cup, Hempfield Classic, and Baltimore Mania titles (just to name a few).  Many of our teams currently hold top 20 Maryland State rankings.

For the upcoming 2018-2019 season, we seek to raise the bar even higher. Our philosophy will remain the same: -Develop individual technical proficiency/superiority
-Encourage possession with purpose attacking style of play
-Foster a life long love for the game
-Build exemplary character on and off field


In order to accomplish these goals, we will demand strong effort, commitment, and passion from our travel players. While there is some variation depending on age, expect rigorous and ambitious training schedules, league play, and tournaments throughout 2018-2019 will be the norm.
