WHAT TO EXPECT WITH CROSSFIRE SELECT
Every season the club forms 2-3 boys and girls teams for ages U10 to U19 through a tryout process. Once teams are formed, training begins early June. Practices are held twice a week with schedules determined by the individual coaches within guidelines set by the club.
Most teams participate in 2-3 tournaments throughout the summer season (June-August), one of which is our own Crossfire Select Cup. During the summer, teams are evaluated by the coach and coaching director and placed in a competitive division for the fall season that is appropriate for each individual team. A team that is well placed will win as many matches as they lose, and draw any number of matches. In this way, players and teams are receiving a proper challenge to help them develop their skills.
Most Crossfire Select teams play in the North Puget Sound League (NPSL). NPSL teams play a 12-match schedule in the Fall. Girls High School age teams (U15-U19) play in the Winter beginning December and concluding in March.
Travel is generally within a 1-hour radius of Redmond, occasionally more, and within King and Snohomish Counties. One or two matches per season may require further travel that is within a 3-hour radius of Redmond.
A few of the most competitive Crossfire Select teams compete in the Regional Club League (RCL). Crossfire Select teams end their season in January/February by participating in a state tournament, either Founders Cup or Presidents Cup (GU15-GU19 and higher performing teams).
(Subject to change)
Fees allow the club to operate in a fiscally responsible manner as to cover registration, administrative costs, referees, facility rentals, field maintenance, and coaching education. Fees also cover the costs for teams to enter NPSL and a state cup. Crossfire Select offers payment options, and scholarships are also available.
Teams collect a team fund from every family that range from $150 - $200 for the season. This fund generally covers tournament entry fees, costs to coaches, and an end-of-season party. This fund is in addition to the club fees, and varies from team to team.
Team funds will be discussed at the first team meeting of the year. Your team's treasurer will collect the funds from each parent once the amount has been finalized.
Boys order uniforms on even-numbered tryout years, and girls order on odd-numbered tryout years. If your player needs a uniform this year, you will receive an email from Soccer.com when items are available to purchase. Club fan gear can be purchased at any time.
If you need an additional uniform outside of the regular order cycle, contact your team manager.
The cost of uniforms is approximately $200 per 2-year cycle.
