Q. What does a typical season look like?
The normal season for Fall will begin with practices starting in August to prepare for an early September MOSA (Monmouth Ocean Soccer Association).
Prior to the season starting a “flight night” occurs in which all teams playing in the MOSA league are sorted out to hopefully a competitive group of teams that will play each other 2 times once home and once away.
The travel time for away games is generally 1 hour or less of travel time each way.
Under normal circumstances teams will practice twice a week for one and a half hours. The weather, field condition’s, and other factors could effect schedules.
