Pleasanton RAGE Select Program

The Select program is a new offering geared toward players who desire a soccer commitment that is more demanding than Recreational but less than Competitive. Players tryout and are selected and coached by paid RAGE staff. Select allows parent coaches subject to coaching license requirements and approval by the RAGE Director of Coaching.

Practice is 2 times per week.  The teams participate in a NorCal league and State Cup or other tournaments (depending on age group). Select is an extended Fall season program running approximately July to December.

RAGE Select Information

AGE GROUPS

Select Age Groups: U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14.

SELECT AGE GROUP CHART

Pleasanton Rage is required to follow US Soccer age group definitions.

These age group definition changes are necessary to align RAGE with other local clubs, and US Soccer with international standards.
Our intent for our Select Program is to have at least one team in each of the u9, u10, u11, u12, u13 and u14 age groups only.  We will consider combining age groups only if the numbers and circumstances warrant it.

FAQs

Can my daughter tryout for Comp AND Select?2020-07-02T21:09:25-07:00

Players are welcome to attend Comp tryouts and if they are not placed on a Comp team, they are encouraged to attend Select tryouts.

How will teams be formed?2020-07-02T21:10:26-07:00
  • Teams will be formed by skill level determined by our professional coaches at club placements (tryouts) in July.
  • Select teams will be formed in the U9-U14 age groups if there are enough players at placements (tryouts) registered to play.  Multiple teams per age group could be formed based on the numbers.
How will placements (tryouts) work?2020-07-02T21:11:27-07:00

Tryouts will take place in July after the Comp tryouts are completed. Coaches will evaluate players and choose players for Select teams.  If players do not make a Select team, they will have a place on a Recreational/Flight team in the Fall.

Will you have additional annual programming for our Select players?2020-05-26T15:59:53-07:00

While we will not have year-round games for our Select players, we will offer additional training sessions in the Winter and Spring months.

Does RAGE support multi-sport athletes?2020-07-02T21:14:06-07:00

Absolutely! We support players playing multiple sports at our Competitive, Select, and Recreational/Flight levels.

As a guideline, there is an exception that Select players will attend a minimum of 75% of training sessions.

Can I coach my daughter’s Select team?2020-05-26T15:48:11-07:00

All Select coaches will be professional, paid coaches with minimum USSF licensing requirements. Within our Select program, we will consider parent coaches who meet these requirements within the hiring process with the Recreation Director and Director of Coaching. Current RAGE Competitive coaching staff will have Head Coaching positions within the Select program.

When will Select teams play games and who will they play against?2020-07-02T21:12:53-07:00
  • Game schedules will be released in August, with games likely taking place on various Saturdays and Sundays, with the potential for more than 1 game per weekend.  Tryouts will take place in July, with training beginning the following week in July.
  • Select teams will compete at the Bronze NorCal division for league play and in a comparable NorCal State Cup Division.  Travel for league play will typically be within a 30-mile radius.
How does the addition of a Select program affect our Recreational/Flight program?2020-07-02T21:15:24-07:00

By offering a Select program, we are able to take the best of our former Flight program and add these features to our Recreational/Flight program, including regular professional training sessions for every age group and a season-ending tournament.

Why did we add a Select Program like Ballistic and other neighboring clubs?2020-07-02T21:16:16-07:00
  • Create a better playing experience with more balanced competition and parity within all 3 levels
  • Extended season creating unique opportunities like State Cup and/or area tournaments with outside (non-RAGE) competition
  • Professional coaches for our intermediate level maximizing the development experience
