KBSC Competitive Travel Tryout FAQs

What is Competitive soccer and how does it benefit you? 

Key Biscayne Soccer Club (KBSC) Competitive Program is for players with a strong love for the game, above average skills and a strong drive to develop their soccer abilities to their full potential. Boys and girls that are ready to play Competitive soccer are ready to make the commitment to play a 10-month schedule and play in leagues, tournaments and cups in Miami, across Florida and Nationally.  All coaches are Licensed by the USSF or equivalent organizations.  

How will my son or daughter be picked for a team? 

KBSC will have open tryouts in June for the fall, winter and spring. All players are evaluated during these tryouts by the Directors and team coaches and placed on the appropriate teams based on their talent, cognitive ability, competence and character.  

Can my child try out in a different age group? 

Players cannot tryout or play in an age group for which they are too old. Even if they miss the cut-off by one day, they cannot play down in an age group. You year is determined by your birth year. Players can play up with an older age group, at the discretion of the Directors and Coaches, if it is determined that the player's soccer development can grow. Players must receive approval from the Technical Director to attend tryouts with an older age group team.

What should each player bring?

Parents will have to fill out a contact form and waiver if they did not register online. Copies will be available at the tryout tent when you register, and we'll try to make them available online.

What are the Coaches Looking For?

Often times, players and parents want to know what a coach is looking for in a player. It is difficult to truly see all that a player has to offer in just two or three sessions. However, the tryouts will be structured in a way to allow all participants a chance to showcase their talents. Here is a quick explanation of each criteria:

  • Competence/Technical Ability: Technical skills: passing, dribbling, shooting, first touch, defending, etc.
  • Athletic Ability: Speed, quickness, agility, strength, body control, etc.
  • Cognitive Awareness: Tactical skills: positioning, communication, decisions on and off the ball, etc.
  • Attitude/Work Ethic: We are looking for players who exhibit a positive attitude, take coaching points well, show good sportsmanship, and have an overall desire to improve as players.
  • Character: high work rate, team player, respectful, passionate leader, positive attitude, competitive and self-motivated.

Tryouts and bi-seasonal evaluations will we conducted and shared with the player and parents to track their annual development.   

Can my child get on a team at other times of the year?

Even after tryouts, many teams may have some roster spots open until late summer, or during the season when a player leaves or is injured.   

How can I contact the coach(es) for my age group?
