When does practice start?
Each coach determines when their team will start practice. The coach will notify his/her players via email or phone and let them know of the start date. Typically the teams start practicing two weeks prior to the season.
Where are practices held?
The coach will typically schedule practices around either the school the players are from or in the neighborhood where the majority of the kids live. All BREC parks are open for use by our soccer teams. In addition, you may contact local schools to get permission to practice on their facilities, which can be covered by our insurance at your request. Please contact the office for insurance information.

How many times per week do we practice?
BRSC recommends the following schedule for practices:
U5 – U8 teams practice one time per week for 45 minutes to an hour.
U9 – U12 teams may practice up to twice per week from 1 hour to 1 ½ hours.
