Open to players born January 1, 2003 – December 31, 2003. This is the new age division breakout that U.S. Soccer implemented beginning Fall 2016. Teams that played together in previous seasons have the option of staying together. For this to happen, the team will be registered in the appropriate division based on the oldest player’s birth date on the team. This means some players might play two divisions older than what they played during Spring 2016 instead of one division older. During the registration process, parents will be asked if they would like their child to continue with the same team/age group or not. If you have any questions on how this impacts your player/team specifically, please reach out to your current coach.
Players may be required to attend a grading session before being placed on a team.
Teams will be rostered with the help of the coach and by the Bennington Soccer Club (BENSC) Development Committee. Players will be placed according to ability.
Expect 1-2 practices per week, scheduled by your coach.
BENSC offers additional skills and goalie sessions with our Club's Director of Coaching Development included.
Official game schedules should be released by ENSA, NSL, or Nebraska League two weeks prior to the first game.
Games should start in mid to late August.
BENSC makes every effort to place all players, however, returning BENSC players will be assigned to a team before brand new players. In the event we are unable to place a player you will be contacted by a BENSC Board Member.
BENSC will have new uniforms in Fall 2016. The primary Uniform Kit is $130.00. The secondary Uniform Kit is $160.00 and includes an additional alternate/third jersey top. The head coach of each team will determine the Uniform Kit option for the team. The Uniform Kit fee is in addition to the registration fee, and will be collected outside of the registration system. Please visit our uniform page (http://www.benningtonsoccer.org/page/show/543660-uniforms) for photos additional details. BENSC is planning to distribute uniforms and collect uniform payment in July / early August.
