u11 team selection process
U11 Team Selection Process
  • BSC will form the number of U11 select teams that we have players to fill
  • A player’s bid will be determined by an independent “selection” committee led by Director of Coaching (DOC), based on a number of criteria, e.g.
      • Prior coach recommendations
      • Player evaluation during tryouts
u11 tryouts
U11 Tryouts
  • Tryouts limited to players with birthdates between Aug. 1, 1998 – July 31, 1999
    • NO UNDERAGE (upcoming U10) players allowed unless specifically invited by DOC
  • Each player will be expected/encouraged to attend three (3) tryout sessions:
  • Girls: Monday/Wednesday, 7 - 8:30 pm
  • Boys: Tuesday/Thursday, 7 - 8:30 pm
  • ALL: Saturday (mini-tournament): 10-12 pm

u11 tryouts13
U11 Tryouts
  • Trainers (lead by DOC) will design/run the tryout during M-Th sessions
    • Run through series of “stations”
    • Focus on assessment of various skills
  • Saturday mini-tournament
    • Will let DOC/trainers see how certain combinations of players “play” together
    • DOC/trainers can assess players on intangibles not evaluated during skill drills
outcome of tryouts

“RED”

Tryout Pool

“NAVY”

“WHITE”

Outcome of Tryouts
  • Suggested teams, i.e.

Initial team size will be limited to 8 - 10 after initial tryout to allow for

additions at later tryouts

offers
Offers
  • Once team/coach clusters formed, VP of Select will offer a team “bid” to each player
  • Parents can “accept” offer, “reject” offer, or accept offer to play on a lower level team
    • E.g., Players selected for Red team will be encouraged to play on Red team, but Player can decide to play on Navy (or White) team instead
    • Need response within 48 hours of “bid”

other issues
Other Issues
  • Players who have previous select experience by “playing up”
    • All players must try out with their own age group
    • BSC will assign these players to a new U11 team but will not prohibit these players from trying out for their old (now U12) team
    • Means that some “experienced” U11 players may have option to play on a new U11 team, or their old team
    • Parent/player gets to choose
