What is Select Soccer?

"Club" or "Select" Soccer is a level of soccer for participants who are looking to graduate from recreational soccer.  

Club Players are selected by teams thru a Try-Out system, and are carded with a team for fall and spring seasons.  These teams will travel to other sites to compete against other clubs at Tournaments, and in state leagues. 

For players who are familliar with recreatioal soccer, here are some of the differances:

Training:

Recreational Soccer often does not have a defined trainig plan.  Club Soccer coaches have a pre-planned session that is appropriate for the age and talent of the players.  These sessions are reviewed and discussed with the Club's Director of Coaching to insure they meet the needs of the players.  Recreataional Teams typically only train one day a week, where Club teams train  2 - 3 days a week depending on their game scheules.

Coaches:

Recreational Coaches are volunteers who organize the team but may or may not have soccer experiance.  Club Coaches are required to be licensed, trained, and are continuously studying to improve thier skills.     

Cost:

Recreational Soccer is less expensive becasue they have a very low overhead cost.  Club Soccer by nature is more expensive becasue they partipate in Tournaments, and  Leagues.  (See our article on how the Warrior Soccer Club  is able to reduce your costs as a Select player)

Game Schedules:

Recreational Soccer typically plays 8 games at a single location against other players who participate in that program.  Club Teams participate in two seasons (Fall and Spring) of 8 games.  They also participate in tournaments which consist of 3-4 games duing a weekend.  In some instances, teams participate in a tournametn that is out of state and an overnight stay is required.

What other expenses should you consider?

Uniform's - The Warrior Soccer Club has been an adidas Sponsored Club since October of 1991.

adidas uniform cycles run for two years, meaning that you should only need to buy a uniform every other year. New Kits are selected on Even Number Years. When a new uniform line is released, we meet with the representatives and carefully select a kit that is easy on the budget, but still provides Home / Away Jerseys, Shorts, Socks, and a Training Top. Teams that play in the fall, will also have a Pink Jersey which is worn in October to raise Awareness for Breast Cancer. The entire kit typically costs ~$100.

Spirit wear is available at your discretion from SoccerPlus. Most Items sold there, may have a Warrior SC Logo applied.

Hotels - In some cases teams may travel to tournaments out of state. Most tournaments have a "Stay to Play" policy. This means that teams must stay in tournament sanctioned hotels. Most events are local, and you should not typically see this additional cost when you attend a tournament.

Travel - Depending on the league your team participates in, you may have games scheduled as far as Columbus or Cincinnati. Typically, teams that have to travel some distance will play at a neutral field somewhere between the team locations.

Indoor Soccer / Futsal - Indoor training during the winter months is included in Club Fees. However, players often have the opportunity to participate in an indoor league. Since this is not mandatory, your coach will collect fees from those participating and pay the facility directly.
