The Merrick PAL Travel Soccer Program is for players between the ages of 9 and 18 that wish to play competitive soccer for an age-appropriate Merrick team in the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL). Competition includes the Fall and Spring seasons in the LIJSL, JSS, State Cup, Long Island Cup, and tournament play. Placement on a team is by annual Spring tryout.


Work within the local Merrick community to provide committed soccer players with appropriate teams, training, and competition to further their growth as athletes, and promote the ideals of good sportsmanship and the PAL mission of inspiring youth to realize their full individual potential.
