With everyone’s continued health and safety as our top priority, we are continuing several changes that we made to our program this past season following the guidance of our city, state, and medical experts due to our unprecedented times resulting from the COVID virus. Please review all of the following information before you click to register using the respective links below.
WHAT WILL CHANGE FROM PAST YEARS?
1. REVISED Tryouts:
First and foremost, we will be implementing a skill-based tryout with all recommended social distancing measures in place for Tryouts. Our Tryout process will have all safety restrictions as determined by our governing authorities. All Team Boca staff will also follow all necessary safety guidelines as required.
Open Club Tryouts (Mandatory) will begin on Tuesday, June 1st. Please review our Tryout Schedule (below) for all schedules and the most current updates. Once you are registered for tryouts you will receive all current news & updates by email. Please also follow our club Facebook page, Team Boca Soccer Club, for all news & updates in real time. *IMPORTANT: Please note that players who are not currently registered to Team Boca, and may even be currently registered to another club, can also tryout for a specific team by participating/attending a current team’s practice session(s) prior to our mandatory Open Club Tryouts. Dates of individual “team tryout” participation are assigned to players who request such on an individual basis by our Directors of Coaching and all individual team tryout/practice dates are governed by FYSA & US Club Soccer ByLaws, respectively. To schedule a specific “Team Tryout” session please contact Mario Rincon (Girls) at MarioTeamBoca@gmail.com, or Michael Araujo (Boys) at MichaelTeamBoca@gmail.com.
2. REVISED Registration Fees & Payment Options
Additionally, we will continue our current registration fee payment program to allow for a five payment option (instead of our prior years 3 payments), with the first payment due at online registration to be only $15 instead of the customary $300 – $400 payment. No future payments will incur until August with the balance to be equally divided monthly through November. A $65 non resident fee for all players who live outside the city of Boca Raton will also be be charged with the initial payment and forwarded to the city. This is not a fee that Team Boca receives but we are required by the city to collect. If a player is not selected at Tryouts the initial payment including non-resident fee will be fully refunded.
3. REVISED 2021-22 Team Travel Policy
We will begin the season continuing to follow COVID guidelines and thus it will not be a requirement for Team Boca players to travel as a team group to tournaments, games, and events which require overnight hotel stays or air travel until and unless we receive information from our government health officials which allows us to revert back to our customary team travel with players rooming together overnight. We will start the season with All players of all ages being allowed to travel and stay in rooms with their parents at all events during the 2021-2022 season. This will allow families to make their own decision regarding the safety and social distancing measures they prefer for their family during team travel. It will also allow families to reduce the cost of player travel by electing alternate means of player transportation and utilizing membership miles programs, and/or airline/hotel discount programs. However, our normal team travel procedure will also remain in effect and available for any player who elects to travel with their team, room with their teammates, and be chaperoned by team managers and staff. The choice will now be left to the individual family. Please note that in most instances all players will still be required to stay in the same hotel even though they will not be required to room with other players (which means parents must then also stay in same hotel), as determined by your coach or specific event / tournament policy. Future changes to this policy during the 2021-2022 season (if any) will be determined by review of government recommendations, COVID guidelines, and overall health policy changes.
Note: We are also currently in discussion with a video production service to offer select live streaming of selected games for our upcoming season. We recognize that many of our families cannot attend all games for various reasons, especially those that require distant travel. Live streaming offers the opportunity to watch your athlete compete regardless of location, from any PC, laptop, or mobile phone. More exciting info to follow!
We hope that all of our revised policies will continue to help and encourage every Team Boca player to participate in a safe and healthy upcoming 2021 season.
