Registration is now open for the Player Placement Process (PPP) for the 2022 – 2023 BRSC Competitive Program. Players born in 2013 through 2004 interested in the BRSC competitive program for the 2022 – 2023 season will attend a two-day evaluation process.
Our staff uses this process to help find where to best place players in relation to their ability level. The PPP also allows the club to assess the entire age group and arrange staff needs for the upcoming season/year. It is imperative new players interested in playing competitively this upcoming season register for PPP regardless of the ability to attend PPP. Players can be evaluated at later times. Be sure to let us know if you are unable to attend PPP.
Players are issued a number at registration. As the athletes go through a training progression, our staff will evaluate their performance relative to the five components of soccer – Technical Ability, Technical Speed, Tactical Application, Physical Attributes, and Psychological Dimensions. Players or parents who have questions about the Competitive Program or PPP should contact Marvin Smith and Angie Mitchell. More details about the process can be found on the BRSC Player Placement Process Page.
Online registration is open now for $25/player.
The 2022 Player Placement Process (PPP) will take place according to the players’ birth year. Consult the following list for the PPP dates and times. Players should attend both sessions to receive a comprehensive evaluation. Email Marvin Smith and Angie Mitchell if you have any questions or schedule conflicts.

The LATDP Catalyst Program provides young players with additional training and playing opportunities in the Greater Baton Rouge Area. The U10, U11, and U12 age groups are the “golden age” of development in which players see the best potential for growth. This spring, the LATDP Catalyst for (U10 – U12) girls will provide four one-and-a-half-hour training sessions followed by a trip to the State Games of Mississippi, a 7v7 tournament that will be held in Meridian on June 3 – 5. Tournament play includes three guaranteed games with the possibility of a fourth, championship game.
LATDP Catalyst staff for the spring program include some of BRSC’s best coaches who have extensive experience working with the U10 – U12 age groups. The coaches include BRSC Executive Director Louie Smothermon, Academy Director Andy Smothermon, BRSC Capitals Head Coach Patrick Bueno, and BRSC Satellite Academy Director Caleb Bush.
TRAINING DATES: May 24/26/31 and June 2 from 6:30 – 8:00 pm at Our Lady of the Lake Fields at Burbank Soccer Park.
Hurry, registration for the LATDP Spring Catalyst Program closes soon.
Baton Rouge Soccer Club will be hosting two College ID Camps for ALL players aged 8th grade- 12th grade on Saturday, June 11th, and Sunday, June 12th.
BOYS ID CAMP
The Boys College ID Camp will be Saturday, June 11th from 10 am – 4 pm at Burbank Soccer Complex.
The UAB prospect ID camp is specifically designed for players interested in playing soccer at the next level. UAB and other college programs will put the players through training sessions and matches that allow us to evaluate the player and instruct them on what it takes to play college soccer. If interested in being recruited to play soccer in college, these camps are a great way to get in front of a number of different schools and show your ability within the coach’s own environment.
The ID Camp will be run by UAB (University of Alabama- Birmingham) with college coaches from BSC, CSU Bakersfield, LSU Eunice, Fort Hays State University, Spring Hill College, Huntingdon Hawks, Montebello Falcons, and UAH Chargers attending the event.
GIRLS ID CAMP
Dear Parents and Players,
I would like to thank you for registering for BRSC Girls College ID Camp on Sunday, June 12th.
Unfortunately, due to recent schedule conflicts of several coaches previously committed to attending, we will have to cancel the event and issue you a full refund. It was our intent to provide the players with ample exposure to be scouted by several coaches. These unexpected cancellations diminish that opportunity and do not meet the standards for the camp that we set and promised to you.
Please allow 7-10 business days for the refund to be processed.
Please look out for further information about future college ID Camps in the winter.
