Attached is the article released by NSS regarding game day procedures for all coaches, players, game day personnel and spectators. Please read.
Please read the following info from our DOC, Ed Anibal, about player assessments for 2020:
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.
Due to Covid19 and social distancing guidelines, the BENSC Board of Directors have voted to delay player assessments until Spring 2021. Players who participated with BENSC during the FALL 2019 season will not need to be assessed and will join the previous team they were assigned to.
8U players will be assigned to teams by our President, DOC and previous coaches of this age group.
All new players to BENSC will have individual assessments conducted by one of the following: Director of Coaching, Assistant Director of Coaching, Director of Competition and/or other select coaches. Individual assessments will be conducted prior to the start of the Fall 2020 season and at a time agreed upon by the player, players parent and coaching staff.
If you have any questions, please contact Ed directly at email@example.com
Fall 2020 schedule will run from mid August - October depending on weather and Covid-19 restrictions.
Teams in these age groups play in the the following league:
The games for the Fall season should start in mid/late August and finish the end of October or beginning of November. The games for the Spring season should start in late March/early April and end by mid June. Most teams play a minimum of a 6-8 match schedule depending on number of teams in their division.
Teams play at various fields in the Omaha metro area. Some travel may be required (ie. Bellevue, Blair, Elkhorn, Fremont, Gretna, Millard, Murray, Nebraska City, Omaha, Papillion, Plattsmouth, Ralston, Springfield, Lincoln, York, Council Bluffs, IA, Glenwood, IA, & Sioux City, IA).
Practices - location and number of - will be determined by the coach. Location may vary depending on field availability throughout the City of Bennington. Most practices are held at the Bennington Middle School, Bus Barn and Bennington High School practice fields.
Teams will likely compete in one or more tournaments during the season. This is organized by the team coach and tournament fees are in addition to the regular registration fee.
Due to High School soccer in the Spring Season, BENSC usually does not have enough players currently in 9th - 12th grade to form BENSC teams for those related birth years.
