Boys U10-U15 and Girls U10-U19 Tryout Information
BUFC and sister club MIFC, are combining tryouts to ensure there are enough players to form as many teams as possible, so that every player has a place to play next season. We will hold light tryouts on the first day with the second day only as needed. In the events we have commitments/player intent complete during the first day OR before tryouts, we will use these times to meet with coaches, players and parents in order to keep the boys fresh for upcoming school tryouts.
If you were unable to attend the tryouts and would still like to be considered, please email Aaron Byers.
Note: To be considered for XL, please register for select/xl tryout and check the "Consider for XL" box on the registration form.
Tryouts for each age group take place over a two-day period in May and will run approx. 90 minutes each day. We encourage all players to attend both days of tryouts. This gives our coaches and observers the maximum opportunity to evaluate the players to best determine placement on a team.
Registration for tryouts will be online only to avoid crowding at the arrival area to the best of the club's ability. Registration for Bellevue United FC is $25.00.
To be considered for XL, please register for select/xl tryout and check the "Consider for XL" box on the registration form.
CHECK IN PROCESS:
We ask that all players do their best to arrive 15 minutes early to check in each day. Each player will receive a pinnie on the first day, to wear during tryouts. Players will keep their pinnie and turn it in at the end of the second day of tryouts. If a player can only attend one day of tryouts, they will return the pinnie at the end of that day. Players will be identified by the number on their pinnie, this will be used as notification of roster placement as well.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Players should wear appropriate soccer footwear, shin guards and bring their own water bottle and ball. As we continue to operate under safety protocols related to the COVID pandemic, it will be important your player does not share water bottles with other players.
Players will be placed in age groups and will run through a series of drills, scrimmages and other technical sessions. Players will often be moved around in order to maximize assessment from the broader coaching staff.
Coaches will determine their preferred rosters following the final day of tryouts for each age group. Selected players for each roster will be posted using the number from their pinnie. Players are expected to accept or decline their offer via Sports Connect within 24 hours of email notification. If a player's number is not listed, he/she was not selected for a current team and the club will be in touch to discuss alternative options.
Some coaches may choose to list alternate pinnie numbers for players who may be offered a roster spot in the event a player declines an offer.
There will be NO spectating allowed during tryouts. Please drop off and pick up only.
Tryouts are held rain or shine.
