Player Placement Process 2020-2021 Season

Select Soccer Placement Webinar

BIFC would like to get you up to speed on “how” we are going to implement the Player Placement program in lieu of physical tryouts due to Covid-19.  The state established a policy for clubs that allows each club flexibility in the implementation based on what club leadership feels is best for their membership. At BIFC, we will establish teams where appropriate, or we will generate player pools. Once we are able to have on field practices, we will go through the process for specific team placement as we expect there to be some movement.  Below is what to expect over the next few weeks.


  1. Player placement will begin on May 1stfor all returning BIFC players.

  2. Every player registered in the BIFC Select program for the 2019/2020 season will be welcomed back into the program, providing we have a viable team for them. This will be subject to player numbers and in some age groups being able to form multiple teams.

  3. Based on historical knowledge we may choose to assign players immediately to teams if the numbers and player knowledge make sense to do so.  This will only happen were we are creating one team in an age group.  Based on the number of players registered at this time here is what we expect:

    Boys 2010 – a player pool from which two teams (A and B) will be formed via on field practices

    Boys 2009 – a player pool from which two teams (A and B) will be formed via on field practices

    Boys 2008 – a player pool from which three teams will be formed, note that this year these will be an A, B and C teams, not A and
    two even teams.

    Boys 2007– one team will be assigned based on historical knowledge.2007 aged players may make this team or be selected to the
    2006 white team if viable.

    Boys 2006 – a player pool from which two teams (A and B) will be formed via on field practices

    Girls 2010 – one team will be assigned based on historical knowledge

    Girls 2009 – one team will be assigned based on historical knowledge

    Girls 2008 – one team will be assigned based on historical knowledge

    Girls 2007 - a player pool from which one or two teams will be formed via on field practices. We will guarantee returning players a spot if we are able to retain two teams (A and B) in the age group.

    Girls 2006 - one team will be assigned based on historical knowledge

    Girls 2005 - one team will be assigned based on historical knowledge

    Girls 2002-2004 - one team will be assigned based on historical knowledge

  1. Once we are allowed back on the field in a typical fashion, we will have the remaining age groups to have trainings to evaluate  ALL players in the player pool which will determine final roster placement.

  2. There will be no fees due until such time as we are able to get back on the field.The Select Soccer annual costs can be viewed here, However, please note that if Select Soccer does not start on 1stJune then BIFC will explore the alternative programs that can make up the cancelled tournaments and the loss of practice time.  Should later re-emergence of Covid-19 force us to cancel some portion of the season, BIFC will provide a partial refund, taking into account overhead and other non-recoverable expenses.

  3. If you are a new player to BIFC, or new to our Select program then we will evaluate your suitability for team placement as soon as we are able to get on the field.

  4. We have moved to a new registration system and you will need to set up a new account if this is the first time you have logged onto the system.

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.
