Juniors (U11 – U14) – Most league games are played on Saturdays with an occasional Sunday.

Seniors (U15 – U19) – Most league games are played on Saturday and Sunday.

What will be the format for tryouts?

BRSC holds tryouts every Spring. The tryouts are supervised by the Director of Coaching and conducted by our professional training staff. The players are evaluated by their abilities in four areas: Technical, Tactical, Psychological, and Physical.

When are the tryouts held?

Tryouts are typically held at the beginning of May. Details are communicated as soon as they are confirmed.

How will tryout results be communicated?

Every player who participates in the tryout sessions will receive a notification (via email and/or phone call) regarding tryout results (either way). Our goal is to have all teams formed and communications sent out 2 weeks after tryouts concluded.

How will teams be formed in each age group?

The number of teams formed (Premier, Elite, and Select) is dependent upon how many competitive-level players participated in the try-out process. Players that participated in the tryout process are not guaranteed a spot on a team.

Can players move up in team levels throughout the season?

Players may be offered the opportunity to train and play with the higher level team based on ability and need.

What will be the financial commitment for the different level teams?

BRSC strives to keep fees as low as possible, utilizing many hard-working volunteers to keep operation costs to a minimum and charging only what is necessary to cover our program, staffing, field, and equipment costs. As a result, we are able to offer a high-quality program at costs less than comparable soccer clubs in the area.

Players are required to purchase both a Training kit and a Game kit for the season. BRSC runs a two-year cycle for both kits, with the kits alternating in years for minimal financial impact at one time.

Training kit cost – $25 per kit plus shipping cost
Game kit cost – approximately $130 per kit plus shipping cost
Optional additional items and Team Gear are available for purchase
Tournament, travel, and individual team fees are additional and will vary by team. These fees are typically split between the players and can be offset by team fundraising and team sponsorship.

What are the payment plans?

BRSC offers the following payment plans for Competitive Players:

1. Pay in full: Cash/Check (In Office Only), eCheck, Credit Card

2. Monthly for 4 months

3. Monthly for 6 months

4. Monthly for 8 months
