Due to the increasing demand by our players for higher level coaching, the Brookline Soccer Club has developed the Select Team Program. This is a unique program where players can receive high-level instruction from professional coaches at a competitive cost and retain the opportunity to play on teams with their classmates and practice/play games in their hometown. The BSC Select Teams include the first teams in the Boys and Girls U11 and U12 age groups and the top two teams in the Boys and Girls U14 age group (typically organized into a top 7th Grade team and a Top 8th Grade team). Select Teams are lead by Professional (paid) Coaches. Select Team Coaches must have a minimum of 3 years of coaching experience and earned their NSCAA National Diploma or USSF ‘C’ License. Players placed on Select Team rosters pay an additional $100 registration fee and must commit to attending 90% of team practices and games. Players wishing to play on a Select Team must first attend the BSC General Tryout (typically the first Sunday in May, see tryout schedule for more info). Based on the results from the General Tryout players will be invited to attend a Select Team Call-Back Tryout From the results of the Call-Back Tryout, the roster for each Select Team will be selected. To insure that players placed on the second and third teams in each age group have the opportunity for instruction from an experienced soccer coach the BSC created the Skills Coach Program. In this program, every non-Select Team between U11 and U14 will have the opportunity to work with an experienced soccer coach at one of their practices each week. Participation in the Skills Coach Program comes without any additional registration cost to the players.
