In 2006, Michael Oremus’ squad located an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) near a major intersection in downtown Baghdad. Upon completion of securing the IED, Michael was returning to his vehicle when he was struck by a single round fired by an enemy sniper ... killing him instantly. In his last moments, he displayed exemplary courage and strength. There is no telling how many lives were saved this day through the action of Michael and his squad. In honor of Michael, The Michael Oremus Foundation holds an annual tournament. We hope you will join us.
New Paltz Soccer is for Boys and Girls and open to all interested players regardless of where they live!
Some basic Travel Soccer information:
Every Fall Travel teams move up one age group.
Travel Soccer players are grouped by birth dates:
FALL 2013 - SPRING 2014 ages are as follows:
U19 Born8/1/94 to 7/31/95 U18 Born8/1/95 to 7/31/96 U17 Born8/1/96 to 7/31/97 U16 Born8/1/97 to 7/31/98 U15 Born8/1/98 to 7/31/99 U14 Born8/1/99 to 7/31/00 U13 Born8/1/00 to 7/31/01 U12 Born8/1/01 to 7/31/02 U11 Born8/1/02 to 7/31/03 U10 Born 8/1/03 to 7/31/04 U09 Born 8/1/04 to 7/31/05 U08 Born 8/1/05 or later (May be U 7 etc.) As a small town we do not have the luxury to field teams in each age group , so we try to combine and shift ages to make things work, i.e. you may play on an older team (example: a U 10 playing on U 12 is considered "Playing up") or starter teams may have to be rearranged.
Example: High School Eligible teams (U 19) have all players from U 15 through U 19
Travel Soccer usually requires practices twice a week and being available for games on Sundays.
Games may start as early as 12 o'clock or as late as 5:00 p.m.

Club fees for 2013-2014 are $180 for fall and spring combined plus a uniform charge (you keep the uniform) depending on your age group. Some teams may bring in outside trainers - there is usually an additional fee involved.
