Congratulations on being accepted to the Black Hills Rapids Soccer Club Select Program! Teams in this program will face many challenges in the upcoming year, and to meet these challenges, the players and parents need to be committed to the program and to the team. Teams are dependent upon their respective teammates and parents. Both are required to fulfill their obligations regarding practices, games, tournaments and other necessary duties involved in the participation of this program.
Select Program Schedule
Each player will be provided a season schedule by their coach. This schedule will outline tournaments that players are expected to participate in. Tournaments are selected by the Director of Coaching.
Playing at the Select level involves a high level of commitment by both the player and their family. Below is information that will give you an approximate idea of the expenses you will incur over the next year.
Select Registration Fee: See registration fee page.
Uniform Kit: The cost of the uniform kit for Select Players is $250 for the adult sizes and $237 for youth sizes. If your child continues with Select in subsequent years, you will be expected to buy a new uniform kit every other year*. (*See FAQ page or policy manual for exception.) Players will receive ordering instructions from Soccer.com upon team acceptance. The uniform kit is required for each player and must be in hand before the first practice. Goalkeepers will incur the cost of an additional jersey.
Tournament Registration: The cost to register for tournaments will be equally divided between team members.
Coaches Expenses: Head Coach travel expenses will be divided equally between team members. Coach’s expenses include mileage, lodging and meals. Only the head coach receives travel reimbursement
Travel: Players are responsible for their own travel expenses.
All players, parents/guardians, coaches and spectators are expected to abide by the Black Hills Rapids Soccer Club Code of Conduct.
Players will arrive at practice, on time, ready to play. All players will wear burgundy soccer socks, burgundy shorts, and gray training t-shirt to every practice. You will not be allowed to practice without the appropriate gear.
