Tryout information

BHYSC 2024/2025 Tryouts

Why Tryouts? It is not the goal of the tryouts to cut any children.  BHYSC firmly believes that every child should have the opportunity to play this great game and we fully understand each child develops at a different pace.  The sole goal of the tryout is to group (where possible) kids together that are of similar development each year... to maximize their enjoyment and enhance their experience of the beautiful game.  We hope that the parents can appreciate, and pass on to their children, that the team assignment is not meant to be the permanent track for the rest of their soccer career- it's just the appropriate place for them at this moment in time to learn and grow the most.

Travel Structure

Two seasons  Fall and Spring- both seasons last for 10 weeks
Trainer practice  Professional Trainers from either United Soccer Academy or Far Post Soccer will teach kids- the basic fee includes 2 1.5 hour sessions each week through the season.
Practice  Volunteer coaches are encouraged to run Saturday morning sessions each week, unless the team is already participating in a game, scrimmage or tournament. In the event that a head coach is unable to hold sessions on Saturday morning, the assistant coach should run the session.  
League Play Teams will play in Mid New Jersey Youth Soccer League MNJYSA, Suburban Youth Soccer League SYSL, or Elite Development Program (EDP)

-Rosters will be announced via the BHYSC website on Sunday, June 5th which is the last day for scheduled league games (some make-up games may be played after this date). Rosters will be listed by the players’ tryout numbers which is the same for both tryouts. Parents, please write down and save your child’s tryout number so you can identify their placement. 

-To secure a roster spot, players must make a commitment by Tuesday, June 14th by completing the registration process via the BHYSC website and by paying the full registration fee.

-For the 2024-2025 season, registration fees include two professional training sessions per week (10 weeks) for both the fall and spring seasons. In previous years, the registration fees included only one training session per week with the coach charging and collecting from parents for additional sessions each week. Given that teams train twice per week, the club has decided to collect all fees up front so parents are not charged multiple times and coaches are not regularly trying to collect. Note that teams that attend tournaments will need to pay additional fees accordingly which will be paid by parents to the coach. 

-Refunds will not be given after June 30th for players moving to other teams. Any other requests for refunds will be provided at the discretion of the BHYSC Board of Trustees.
