Fall 2022 Assessments:
BENSC parents and coaches,
During the month of June, all coaches will be conducting player assessments for all existing and new players.
Assessments for all age groups 9U and above (birth year 2014 and older) will be conducted by the head coach of each team, assisted by BENSC Director of Coaching, Assistant Director of Coaching, and/or other available board members or coaching staff. These assessments will need to be completed prior to June 30, 2022. Coaches are responsible for scheduling and communicating assessment date and time with parents, players and the Director of Coaching.
Team formations/rosters will need to be turned into Nebraska State Soccer and the Nebraska Youth Soccer League immediately after assessments and team formation. Coaches will need to work with BENSC board members to create team rosters to meet the league deadlines.
The goal of the assessment process is to continue to track the development of existing Bennington Soccer Club (BENSC) players and any new players to the club. Since it is our goal to match like skilled players together, certain players may change teams based on three factors: performance during the previous season, player assessment scores and coaches’ knowledge of the players development. All new players who are assessed will be placed on the team that best matches their skill level during assessments.
All new players who do not complete the assessment will be randomly placed on a team and further assessment will be completed during the Fall 2022 season.
At the conclusion of each age group assessments, the coaches and at least one of the Directors of Coaching will form teams based on the three factors mentioned above. Any concerns about player placement should be discussed with the players assigned coach, the Director of Coaching for the age group and/or the Director of Coaching for BENSC.
On June 24, 2022 player assessments for all Fall 2022, 8U players (birth year 2015) will take place at the BENSC Soccer Complex between 8am and 1pm (If weather is an issue, we will communicate a change in location and/or date and time). ALL players should plan on attending the June 24th assessments, if at all possible. The June 25th session is a make up session for players who are out of town or unable to attend the assessments on June 24th.
On June 25, 2022 a make-up player assessment will be held for those 8U players (birth year 2015) who were unable to make the initial assessment date (If weather is an issue, we will communicate a change in location and/or date and time).
Due to the number of incoming 8U players, there will three morning sessions. Parents should only choose one session for their player. Please plan on your player attending the entire time. If players are unable to attend due to other commitments, a makeup date has been scheduled. BENSC will invite parents to sign up for the assessment time via Signup Genius on a first come first served basis. Please see assessment schedule below:
No sign up needed, just show up to one of the sessions and check in with a coach/DOC upon arrival.

We will pause here to allow the 8U assessments and the BENSC soccer camp to happen. While these are going on us coaches want to create a rough draft of group like skilled players together to conduct a more formal final assessment, concentrated heavily on scrimmaging against like-skilled players.
All players required – we would want some (or all) of you at this assessment as this will be our more formal one where we will make some final decisions from.
Saturday, June 25th at 9:00am
We would encourage players that will be playing in either the upcoming fall season, next spring season or both seasons to attend.
