NCSA/Concord FC fall registration open now

NCSA/Concord FC is excited to announce that they will be accepting online registrations for the Travel/Rec Fall Soccer league starting now.

This opportunity is a nice option for those who want to take the next step after summer rec soccer. Teams feature a more competitive atmosphere, while keeping equal playing time and a focus on skills development. Athletes will be expected to be at two practices per week (Monday/Wednesday 6-7:30) and a doubleheader of games on Saturdays. Travel is limited to the southern tier (Bemus, Falconer, Westfield, etc.). The home/practice field is behind Holy Trinity Church in Dunkirk. The season begins Aug. 20 and runs through October.

Teams will be formed with about 10-15 players. The more that register, the more teams created. The younger division consists of grades 3-4 with the head coach to be Josh Czekanski. The older division consists of grades 5-6 with the head coach to be Aaron Pietro. The fall travel deadline is typically well before school team cuts are. Seventh graders who have not reached the age of 13 by Aug. 1 and would be interested in playing fall travel if they do not find placement on their school team should email the Director of Fall, Aaron Pietro, at

Registration is $65 plus uniform fees (if applicable). The fall season uses the spring Concord FC uniforms. If your athlete played the 2017-18 spring seasons or the 2017 fall season they do not need to buy a uniform. However, we strongly recommend that all players try on their uniforms for proper fit before registering. Any uniform piece can be purchased individually during registration. First time travel players will need to buy a uniform. This is the last season for these uniforms. Purple training/practice tops are only required for athletes new to the program. They are the same purple shirts as last fall and spring.

Fall registration will be open until July 23. This has to be a firm deadline as we need to report the number of teams to the fall travel league. Late registrations will only be accepted if there is availability on the teams declared. We appreciate your understanding.

If you have any questions, please email them to Pietro at Please register at
