While the 2020/21 Player Placement Process has passed, there is space available in select age groups new and returning players. Contact Kay Briggs or Marvin Smith to help set up your player evaluation.

COMPETITIVE PLAYER PLACEMENT PROCESS

Players interested in participating in the BRSC Competitive Program will attend a two-day Player Placement Process (PPP). Through this identification program, BRSC coaches evaluate players to better group players based on ability. The PPP also allows the club to assess the entire age group and arrange staff needs for the upcoming season/year.

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. These include:

Technical Ability – skill proficiency

 Technical Speed – ability to execute skill at top speed

 Tactical Application – understanding of time and space, movement with and without the ball, field vision, ability to combine with other players, speed of thought, etc.

 Physical Attributes – speed, strength on the ball (tackling & shielding ball)

 Psychological Dimensions – competitiveness, work ethic, interaction with teammates, coachability, etc.

BRSC coaches assess each player and assign a number 1-6 to correspond with our team colors and small-sided fields. Players/teams are created based on the overall rating and coach’s comments.
An email of player placement will arrive with a request to decline or accept the assignment. Players must agree and pay the registration and team fees before placement is finalized. Per LSA policy, BRSC must withhold team invitations until a specified timeline.

COMPETITIVE PLAYER PLACEMENT PROCESS FORMAT

The Player Placement Process includes activities that are soccer-specific and realistic. While the PPP sessions vary by year and age group, the following example formats can be helpful for players new to the process.  Each player must bring a ball, refill water bottle and dress appropriately (e.g., shin guards, shorts, socks).  Check in for the event will take place 30 minutes prior to each session.  Each player will receive a BRSC T-shirt to be worn both nights.

DAY 1

  • 5 minutes Ice Breaker (fun games) & Stretch
  • 15 minutes of technical application (First touch, dribbling, passing, receiving and turning, etc.)
  • 5 minutes break
  • 20 minutes of small (3v2) group tactical application possession oriented games
  • 5 minutes break
  • 35 minutes of large (4V4-5V5) group games (this allows us to see if the players can transfer their technical and tactical skills into the big game)
  • 5 minutes cool down - closing
    Note: Goalkeepers will work with our goalkeeper coach for the entire session

DAY 2
