8U Team Info

Bennington, NE

Welcome to the 8U Boys & Girls Division Page:

Bennington Soccer Club (BENSC) conducts annual player assessments for all 8U and above players. As a club, we have determined that by conducting player assessments, we are better able to match "like" skilled players together which ultimately improves their individual development. (Assessments: are not try-outs, no player will be cut from the program)

 

Practices:

Sessions are scheduled for Tuesday's from 6:00 - 7:00 PM. 

Coaches can reach out to Mark Wittland at competition@benningtonsoccer.org, for an additional practice time, based on field availability.

Please see the practice schedule on the TeamSnap app for official dates/times after registration has closed.  All 8U coaches will upload the practice and game schedules to the TeamSnap app when that info is available.

 

Games:  

8U NYSL (Nebraska Youth Soccer League) 5v5 games will be held in various fields around the Omaha, Fremont and Bennington area*.

Fall schedules will run from mid August - October depending on weather and Covid-19 restrictions.

Spring schedules will run from mid March - mid June depending on weather and Covid-19 restrictions.

8U primary play day is Saturday and secondary play day is Sunday.

*Game locations maybe be moved to other fields in Omaha or surrounding areas based on need/availability as determined by NYSL.

Weather Cancellations:

Will be posted on the main page of the website, and will be emailed and/or texted out division wide via the TeamSnap app.  Please note - we have GREAT fields, and they drain very well.  If it has rained earlier in the day, but has cleared by practice time - we will most likely still hold practice!  If there is severe weather in the area, we will cancel practice early - so please stay near our complex when weather is a potential issue.

Due to the number of dates this season, practice cancellations will not be made up.
