Over the past several years, the Beekman Soccer Club has experienced significant growth in both number of players and quality of play. We now offer 20+ travel teams spanning most age groups. Our philosophy for the travel program is to provide a general framework for all teams, but to also allow flexibility for our coaches to run their teams like a franchise. Our teams participate in various leagues throughout the region including East Hudson, New York Club (premier), EDP, and Westchester Youth South League (WYSL). We find that this optionality allows our coaches to find the most appropriate fit for their team. Our Club also runs its annual Beekman Cup Columbus Day tournament, where travel teams share in the proceeds generated from the tournament and also generate additional sponsorship dollars for their teams. Our travel program model has been extremely well received and has acted as a catalyst in helping grow the travel program.
In addition, the Beekman Soccer Club has an alliance with Quickstrike FC, a premier soccer program whose primary focus is the development of player values; including commitment to excellence, sportsmanship, and technical/tactical skills required to fulfill potential and progress to the highest level of play. Through this alliance, many of our travel teams utilize QS trainers at one or both of their weekly practices. Quickstrike also offers discounts to their camps and training for all Beekman members.
