The Jensen Beach Soccer Club competitive program is comprised of individual teams made up of players selected by coaches through try-outs. This program is designed for the player that desires a higher level of training and play, and is willing to commit to additional training, practices and travel.
The travel differences between the recreational and competitive programs vary by age groups. The younger teams rarely travel outside the Treasure Coast area for league play. Several tournaments per year are sponsored right here on the Treasure Coast. It is true that the older age players travel more but most leagues ensure as many home games as away games so at least half the league play is right here in Jensen Beach!
If your child loves soccer then the competitive program will allow him or her to play almost year round instead of the three month recreational season. In addition, competitive teams tend to stay together on the same team year after year which adds a sense of purpose and allows for the establishment of continued friendship. Unlike the recreational program, players are not guaranteed a minimum playing time, though coaches are encouraged to embrace an equitable rotation policy.
Competitive Team Coaches determine their team budgets at the outset of the season. Costs vary team by team within our club, but a good ball park price per player is $800.00 to cover a fall season, spring season, and a few tournaments. Many clubs within our area charge DOUBLE, TRIPLE, QUADRUPLE, and EVEN HIGHER prices for a player to play a full year of soccer. What's the difference, you ask? While other clubs provide paid coaches, JBSC uses volunteer coaches while supplementing the coaching with licensed trainers. Other clubs may also pay their club organizers - all JBSC board members are volunteers.
