The travel program was designed for those dedicated soccer players looking for a more competitive environment. During the fall and winter seasons, teams practice two to three times per week with weekly games in competitive leagues. Spring season brings weekly practice with the option of additional technical training plus games on the weekend. Our travel teams compete in different leagues and levels depending on where each team can be most competitive. All teams have licensed coaches with a variety of experiences from coaching college and high school teams to coaching elite teams in NJ and PA.
Questions about our travel teams can be sent to the Head of Coaching.

Head Coach will be paid, professionally licensed coach. 5+ years of club travel soccer head coaching experience preferred, minimum of 3 years head coaching experience. Each of Palumbo’s travel head coaches will have a US Soccer license, NSCAA, or international equivalent. A majority of our travel head coaches have played NCAA collegiate soccer (international equivalent) or professional soccer. Please go to www.palumbosoccer.org to see Palumbo’s outstanding travel coaching staff roster.
IMPORTANT: Palumbo does not name its coaching staff for the following year prior to team selection because we wait to see the makeup of each team. Once teams are determined, we then assign Head Coaches based on the best fit for that specific team, from an individual player development and collective team development standpoint.
Palumbo Soccer Club strives to have all team training sessions within a 20 minute drive of our home field at 10th and Fitzwater in South Philadelphia.
Projected Total Soccer hours for the year is 125 to 130 hours.
