Playing time is dependent upon a combination of skill, work ethic, attitude, attendance, effort and commitment at practices as well as the ability to demonstrate a “team” philosophy. We expect all players to work hard in practice to earn their playing time.
Our general philosophy regarding playing time for the U8 to U11 BFA Teams is as follows:
The coach will manage playing time with most players getting approximately the same amount of playing time taking into account the above. Prominent/influential attacking and defending players may get slightly more playing time so that team cohesiveness remains intact but the coach will be mindful of everyone getting quality field time. The A and B squads are in no way fixed and players will move between the two at the team coach’s discretion. No player is guaranteed of a spot in either squad.
