Missed tryouts? Get in touch!

Select Soccer Overview

For players that are U11 and older (for the 2022-23 season, this will be the 2012 birth year and older), our competitive program is called Select. 

Our core values of loyalty, honesty, and positivity, impact upon every training session and game that we coach.

BSC Select players are coached by our dedicated, nationally licensed team of coaches. We are very proud to have college coaches, high school coaches and Olympic Development Program (ODP) coaches on staff, to oversee the development of the players.  

Players are coached to a club curriculum in accordance with the United States Soccer Federation (USSF). This curriculum is designed and implemented to nurture the technical, tactical, physical and psychological aspects of a player within a team environment, while fostering a love for the game.

Our aim is to develop players' technical ability and nurture strong fundamentals, while being capable of making decisions independently for success in individual, group and team situations on the soccer field. We want BSC teams to play exciting soccer, and our coaches, players and parents to hold themselves to the highest standards.

Our focus is on the development of the player and person. Success, in terms of results, is a byproduct of effective development and a positive coaching environment.

Coaching Opportunities for High School Players

A unique element to being a select player at Boerne Soccer Club is the opportunity for all select players to become a coach in our recreational program as soon as they have reached high school. We have had so many BSC players take advantage of this opportunity and the chance to teach soccer as well as learn from their own coaches. This has seen wonderful opportunities to develop character and life skills for the select players, but most importantly it has served our younger recreational players with a younger role model to aid in their love of soccer through their energy and enthusiasm for the game.

Techne: the soccer training app

BSC is excited to announce that we are partnering with Techne Futbol to provide a resource to guide players in their individual training.

Every BSC Select receives an email invitation to create a profile on Techne. Techne is a resource paid for by BSC for every player to access professional home training sessions, with data that is logged and stored for the players' records. 

There is new content every week, players can compete with their teammates, and coaches will be able to keep track of players' training activities. We are committed to our players' development on and off the field and are very excited to be offering this resource!

Boerne Virtual FC - Online Platform Access

Every Select player at Boerne Soccer Club has access to our club online platform, Boerne Virtual FC, where players are connected with their coach, teammates and club directors throughout the season and even the off-season. This program sees players have access to content made by BSC Coaches, for BSC players, to support their individual development when they are away from the training field.
