SC Wave New Berlin Select Program
The SC Wave New Berlin select program provides an opportunity for a higher level of competition and training for more serious players who have demonstrated the ability, skill development and commitment to compete at a higher level.
SELECT TEAM STRUCTURE
SC Wave New Berlin will offer select teams for boys and girls beginning at the U11 age level. Teams will be given an A (Elite) or B (Select) designation. The number of players trying out and coaching availability will determine if there is a B team.
The purpose of the select team is to provide instruction, skill development and competition to those players who possess a higher level of soccer skills and a desire to play at this level. The expectation for each player at this level is to improve their individual skills in order to help the team compete at an appropriate level and perhaps gain enough skills to move up a level at the next tryout year.
Depending on age, teams will compete in the SECL, State League Premier, 1st Division, or Midwest Regional League.
SELECT TEAM TRYOUTS
Select tryouts are held to choose each team at the select level. These tryouts for select teams are held annually, generally in June and will be the responsibility of the Director of Coaching and Player Development.
Both the Boys and Girls Select Directors and other Co-Directors may be in attendance and observe these tryouts. The Director of Player and Coaching Development, along with assigned evaluators, will assume responsibility for selecting players to teams. All efforts will be made to insure that these evaluators will be experienced soccer personnel who are generally not personally acquainted with the players trying out for the team. Players are not guaranteed a position on any team simply because they played on that team last year. In the unfortunate case where a player does not make a select team, it does not mean that they will not have a place to play. There will be an effort to create a team at the skill appropriate level if the numbers can support it.
