Play Up Policy
Blackhills Football Club respects each player's freedom to try out for more than one age group. However, we request that you try out for your true age group as well as any other older age groups you wish. That way, if you aren't selected for the older team, you may still make the team at your true age level. Otherwise you may miss out on being selected for any team.
If you missed our B04, B03, B02, and B01 tryouts, contact the Blackhills FC Technical Director. 

If you are unable to attend both days OR attend either tryout notify BFC Technical Director.

Tryout Format

Blackhills FC coaches understand that tryouts can be stressful experiences and will do what they can to provide as much information as possible about the process to the players and parents.

In general terms, tryouts consist of small sided games and large sided games observed by our coaching staff. Multiple coaches will observe players and use the assigned vest numbers to take notes and make selections. Each age group will have two (2) days of tryouts. It is highly recommended that players attend both days. The players will receive a score based on their tryout performance. For example, if there are 10 selectors and 8 of them choose this player, then that player has a tryout score of 80%. We do not combine both tryout date scores, they are independent of each other. We take the high score from the two tryouts.

Tryout in Appropriate Age Bracket

Blackhills FC encourages players to tryout in their age bracket. We respect each player's freedom to try out for more than one age group. However, we request that you try out for your true age group. That way, if you aren't selected for the older team, you may still make the team in your age bracket. If you don't tryout for the both, you may not be selected for any team. If a player decides to tryout for the team in their age bracket and the older team, we recommend the players attend all tryout dates for those teams.
