CI Cyclones Soccer Travel Teams

Travel Teams & Tryouts

Our travel teams train all year round, participating in two major seasons: Spring and Fall, 8-10 games each.  In addition, teams usually play at least two tournaments in a year, where multiple matches are played over the course of 1 or 2 days.  Some of our travel teams also sign up to play in the Winter leagues in one of the covered turf facilities around NYC and Long Island.  During the winter our younger groups through 13 years old practice indoors, honing technical and decision-making abilities by playing Footsal.

Goalkeeper training

Goalkeeper’s position is unlike any other position on the soccer field.  It requires a certain mentality, bravery, and (might we say) a little craziness.  It also requires a whole other set of skills and knowledge. Cyclones goalies have dedicated goalkeeping practices, in addition to the regular practices with their respective teams.  We aim to support and develop an interest in our young goalkeepers by having a dedicated goalkeeping coach work with them from early on, in order to give our goalies an opportunity to get their goalkeeping technical foundations when they are young.  Sky’s the limit!

Individual 1-on-1 or small group sessions

Team practices and games are a central piece of our travel team program.  However, a lot of the technical improvement we observe in players comes from practicing on their own, or through individual 1v1 or small group (2-4 players) practice sessions.  In these practices, players get 100% of coaching attention on every touch and can be used as a great opportunity to fine-tune all crucial elements of a player’s technique.

Cyclones coaches regularly set up on-demand private practices with players on our teams.  We have years of experience with private training sessions, having coached many players of different ages and abilities and seen the tremendous positive impact on their game.

Please contact Coach Vlad at 917-623-8480 to arrange a private or small group training session.


Game Analysis. VEO match videos and Zoom calls

Starting in 2022, Cyclones SC introduced VEO video technology as part of our travel team curriculum.  Every weekend we stream matches live over the VEO platforms for families to be able to watch from any place in the world and cheer for their favorite Cyclones teams and players.  We then use this footage for match analysis with the team through Zoom calls, in order for the coach to illustrate individual and team tactical points.  We know kids are highly visually perceptive and learn so much faster by seeing their actions on the field with their own eyes.
