Select Program

Select Soccer at BIFC

Bainbridge Island FC (BIFC) is extremely proud of its Select Soccer Program.  The success of BIFC's teams can be directly contributed to the long-term, progressive development of the individual players on our teams. From the beginning, BIFC players are trained with their long-term development in mind rather than immediate team success. BIFC coaches are committed to this philosophy and our club utilizes a professional coaching staff to ensure that players get the maximum amount of learning and development.

Everything we do is about building people, building kids. We believe that good values lead to good people, and good people can do great things. The way we do that is through soccer, we provide opportunities for players to play the beautiful game, because the beautiful game is fun to play. Our players are trained with their long-term development in mind rather than immediate team success, but we find success following this path. Come play on our team.

Not only do BIFC select team players perform well in the realm of club soccer, BIFC training is proven preparation for high school soccer. The strength of a high school program usually reflects the number of club players on the team and the level at which those players compete during their club season.

Play Ups

Children will be allowed to tryout for older age groups, please notify Technical Director - Phil Avison if you intend to tryout for an older age group. Players trying out for an older age group must try out at their own age group. We do have a set criteria for players being allowed to play up, each player's position will be individually reviewed by the BIFC Director of Coaching, Technical Director and coaching staff.

HS Age Groups

BIFC teams within the older age groups, will be formed in a similar manner to how HS teams are formed across the state of Washington and the US. With a Varsity, JV and JVC groups representing the club.

Is Select soccer for you?

Select soccer is for serious soccer players who want professional instruction and who desire a more competitive environment with other players who share the same goals. Most select soccer players tend to be those that want to play for their high school and possibly in college. Players should not try out for a competitive team simply because some of their friends are. They should tryout because they enjoy playing soccer, want to learn to play at a more advanced level, and are willing to commit the time and effort required to become the best soccer player possible.

Select Level Commitment

At BIFC, select teams train 2 times each week for 1.5 hours each session. In addition goal keepers are required to attend goal keeper training weekly. Scrimmages, practice games, and tournaments are an integral part of the commitment. Scrimmages or practice games may be scheduled during the week in addition to regular training or on the weekends. Teams enter 3 tournaments each summer which will require weekend travel in the Puget Sound area, and possibly beyond.

Beyond the added training, match and tournament requirements, select level players are truly challenged to perform at a higher level both technically and tactically, individually and as a team. More is expected of each player and each team in commitment, effort, desire, and development results.
