How to resolve 'Unable to find remote helper' error when typing in Source Path not hosted on Bitbucket, Github, etc.

I'm getting an error:

fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'svn'

When I type in my source path svn://my_user_name@domain.com/Folder_Name (with my personal details of course), it gives an error that it is not a valid source path. I can login with another svn program fine. Am I missing something?

The 'svn://' protocol is not supported. You can clone from a Subversion repository in SourceTree into a local Git or Mercurial repo (via git-svn an hgsubversion), but only if it's available over HTTPS or SSH.
