TEAM ASSIGNMENTS

Players/Parents should hear from their coaches by 2/24/19, if you have not heard from your coach, please email brscac@bradenriversoccer.org

 

SPECIAL REQUESTS

Please note that the Club does not honor special requests for players to be with specific coaches or allow all or partial teams to remain together.  We found that the teams that were doing so got an unfair advantage and it was causing some very lopsided games.  As such, we will allow the coaches to keep two players, their child and an assistant coach’s child.  If there is not an assistant, the coach can reserve one other player.  We do not anticipate making exceptions to this. If you have made a request for a specific coach on your registration form, we will not be considering those and will not be sending individuals emails out letting you know that.

We will however honor requests for specific practices nights and, as always, will do our best to accommodate those requests.  We also try our best to accommodate requests to be placed with another player if those requests are reasonable.

 

PRACTICE SESSIONS - Begin the week of 3/4/19.

Generally, teams practice Monday thru Thursday Eves beginning at 6:00pm but some may start earlier or later. Sessions will be at our fields located at *Lakewood Ranch Park.
