2. Transportation

The players, coaches will travel with a 55 seats Coach Bus to Patton Park, Jacksonville and back to Miami. Parents, family members and fans are welcome on board.

We choose this form of transportation because of the following reasons:

  • We received a very friendly rental fee with the driver fee included ( $1,600.00 + Driver's Tip)

  • The coach bus is much safer than smaller vehicles,

  • The coach bus is more conformable, and it is important because of the players state of physical readiness,

  • The whole team travels together,

  • The players travel together with the coaches (game tactics on the bus),

  • We don't loose each other, and it's easier to organize stops on the highway.

Note from Gabor Pasztor: I apologize for missing to inform the parents about the upcoming $25 Referees' & Coaches' Fees for every level of qualification! I should have included it in my description of State Cup Registration. 
In case our team qualifies to the Semi-final and Final, which will be held in the IMG Academy, in Bradenton, only Coaches' Fees will apply, because US Club Soccer is responsible for the Field rental, Field lining, Maintenance and Referees' fee.
