League matches are held on Saturdays in Fletcher, Cambridge, Westford, Hyde Park, Johnson, Eden, Morrisville, and Stowe. Club Teams may schedule additional matches later in the season during regularly scheduled training sessions against other area teams. Club Teams will participate in one tournament—The Cambridge Tournament, where teams play three 30 minute matches.

This team will be comprised of players from the Club that want to play at a higher level; and display the skills, leadership, and sportsmanship that is expected at this level of play. They also MUST play by their birth year. This level requires a bigger commitment from players & families. Premier teams will participate in the Vermont Soccer League (www.vermontsoccer.org). All matches are played on Sundays at the Tree Farm Complex in Essex Junction, Vermont. Premier teams have the option of participating in tournaments for additional fees.
