Select Season

For those of you who are not familiar, the Select Season is for players 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U to play in our competitive season. The program is for motivated players who want to continue playing after the primary season. Players are selected based on interest, ability, attitude, parent participation, commitment and coach/board observations.

The Select Season runs from December to March and then the tournament season runs March through May. This year the season will be run in two sections. One being games from January to March and the other continuing on until the end of May. For those players that have a passion for soccer, but also other sports, this allows them to participate in our Select Soccer Season and then participate in another sport in the Spring. This also allows those High School soccer players to also participate in the second half of the Select Season without interfering with their high school commitments. It is expected that Select teams will participate in some of the tournaments.

Practices begin in December and run about 2 hours twice a week. Games are scheduled for Saturdays from the beginning of January through the end of March. About half of the games are home and the other half are as far away as the East Bay (Concord and Pleasant Hill) and Davis. Additional practices and tournament play may continue from April through July.

In order to be eligible to coach a Select Team, coaches must be certified at a level above the age at which they would like to coach. (Example: if you want to coach a 12U team, you must have an Intermediate coaching certification) Coaches are vetted by the Select Committee and are assigned a team based upon the committee's recommendation. Not all coaches who apply will be accepted but are welcome to help assigned coaches during training sessions.

Some of the criteria the Select Committee looks at in appointing Select Coaches are the following;

Good Standing with Antelope AYSO
Knowledge of the Game
Player Development Observation
Adherence to Positive Coaching
Positive Representatives of Antelope AYSO
Commitment to Teams During the Rec Season
