What equipment does my son/daughter need to play?

All children should come in athletic attire.  These should be clothes that they are comfortable running around and playing in.  Soccer tends to go from warm to cold weather so please make sure they are dressed according to the weather.  We are flexible in town so they can wear gloves, hats, coats, etc.. whatever is needed for them to be comfortable.

Shin guards are mandatory for all children.  This is for safety reasons.  Please make sure your children show up with shin guards on.

Cleats are optional but strongly recommended.  They should be soccer cleats, which gives the kids extra traction to avoid injuries on wet grass.

Travel Soccer via ROOTS

Are you new to the travel program or wondering what it is about?? The Southwick Soccer travel teams are for both the boys and girls that reside in Southwick or belong to the Southwick School District in grades 2nd through 8th grade.

Where do you play the games? All of the travel team games are local but not all in Southwick. Every Season each team has home games, right at Foisy Fields, and away games, at opposing team locations. The towns we travel to include, Agawam, Longmeadow, Amherst, West Springfield, Ludlow, Chicopee, Belchertown, South Hadley, Westfield, Easthampton, Northampton, and a few other western mass towns. All of the member leagues in Roots can be found here: https://www.rootssoccerleague.com/memberclubs

What is the commitment like? Most of our travel teams train/practice 2 to 3 times a week and games are played on Saturdays with some Friday night ( not all teams have these but some do). Our trains/practices are helped in Southwick and the location and time and days are determined by the head coach. We use the Teamsnap app for all team communication and include team schedules and more. All Players need to purchase, in addition to the season fees the Southwick Soccer travel kit and have their own soccer ball, shinguards and cleats.
