Seekonk Youth Soccer Black Goose Program is a competitive travel program designed for players looking to take their skillset to the next level. The Black Goose program is built for players with a strong foundational knowledge of the game who are prepared for an elevated athletic experience above and beyond our recreational program. Seekonk teams are poised to compete against other teams throughout Rhode Island, Southeastern Massachusetts, and Eastern Connecticut. Seekonk Youth Soccer is registering teams to compete in RI-based The Superliga for Fall 2022 & Spring 2023.
Applicable age groups range from U8 to U15, where players must be 7 years old prior to August 1st of the forthcoming season and in 2nd grade in order to participate. For the U11 thru U19 age groups, teams who do well in their divisions have a chance to compete in playoffs.
This program is open to all children provided there is space and a team for their age group. Teams are built on a first come, first serve basis until the roster requirements are met. Once a team's roster is full, players will be wait-listed and potentially released until numbers are great enough to field a second team. Tryouts will be held and evaluated by coaches and possibly a neutral third party if numbers are large enough to field more than one team.
Black Goose requires an increased level of commitment to both practices and games in the local region. Players can expect to attend 1-2 weekly practices required for participation. Practices are mandatory and held at the coaches' discretion in coordination with the league and Town. Games are scheduled in conjunction with The Superliga. Further, the league mandates that new players to the program complete at least one season of Seekonk Recreational Soccer (or show proof of a comparable program from another organization) prior to joining Seekonk Black Goose.
Information about The Superliga can be found at https://www.thesuperliga.com/
Black Goose teams are organized by birth year over grade level. We do not honor parent requests for player placement in most cases.
All players will be wait-listed until teams can be established. Once teams are built, families will be prompted to complete registration and pay before the deadline. No money is due now.
