Our vision with the Travel program at John Jay Futbol Club is to create a positive environment in line with
our Club Values, that promotes players being able to learn soccer and experiment with different skills and
decisions without fear of failure. We want to develop foundational skills and game understanding around
being able to love and master the ball as well as develop creative thinking.

Our Club Curriculum is designed to support the development of “Self-Learners” and “Independent-
thinking Soccer players” through a challenge and game-based approach to teaching soccer. This is
consistently aligned with how we describe each age-group within the Club how we compete on a Match-
day in the WYSL (Westchester Youth Soccer League) or in the NYSC (New York State Cup) and WC
(Westchester Cup) and support players across all pathways.
