That all depends on their level of experience and your personal preference. Have your children played before? Do you want them to play and/or train with a traveling team? Are you familiar with Select Soccer vs. Rec Soccer?

The six year old is old enough to join any of the soccer academies. The 9 and 10 year olds are old enough to play the older competitive teams. It all depends on their birthday but I would guess the U10 and U11 teams.

I would recommend that they try-out in Frankfort if that is where you live. Most will attend try-outs at least two different clubs. It's always a good idea to have a back up plan in the event that a certain age group doesn't have enough players to field a team. Almost all of the Select Clubs have a website that you can visit. I would get on their websites and view prices, club info, etc. to see which one would be the best fit for you. In your case, it may be a good idea to contact the club directly to find out if they offer some sort of sibling discount. It may save you a little money.

Here's a list of the age group classification. It will tell you what age group your child should try out for. This applies to all Select Clubs. Most clubs will allow your child to "play up" at least one age group if they feel it would be better for them to compete at a higher level.

Age Group Born Between
U-18 8-1-94 & 7-31-95
U-17 8-1-95 & 7-31-96
U-16 8-1-96 & 7-31-97
U-15 8-1-97 & 7-31-98
U-14 8-1-98 & 7-31-99
U-13 8-1-99 & 7-31-00
U-12 8-1-00 & 7-31-01
U-11 8-1-01 & 7-31-02
U-10 8-1-02 & 7-31-03
U-9* 8-1-03 & 7-31-04

Hope this helps!

Personally, I think that the children receive much better training in Select than in Rec. They also get to play against better competition, which always helps to improve their own skills.

There are several significant differences between
recreational and competitive soccer including:

*Cost - The cost to play Select Soccer is significantly higher than recreational soccer. You have to consider the cost of registration which can run anywhere from $500.00 per child/per year up to $900.00 per child/per year. You also have to pay for the uniforms and most tournaments. Make sure you don't forget about the cost of hotel rooms, gas, etc. that you may accrue. These would be good questions to ask during tryouts. Get all of the info up front.

*Commitment - Select Soccer requires commitment from the parents and the players. It's extremely important that you attend practices and games. Also, parents may be asked to assist with lining fields, working concessions, being team manager, etc.

*Coach Licensing - All Select Soccer coaches in KY are required to have a minimum of a USSF D License and USSF National Youth
License

*Selection process for teams - Unfortunately not every child is going to make the team. This can be difficult for young children who do not make a team the first time. If the child does not make it, ask the coach what the child needs to improve on. Encourage the child to work on those particular skills and try again next year!

*Frequency of practices - Most Select Clubs have at least (2)
1 1/2 hour - 2 hour practices a week

*Playing time - No child is guaranteed a certain amount of playing time. Children earn their time during practices and on the field.

*Location of games- Travel is required for all away games. The distance you travel depends on what league and division the team is in.

*Off-season commitments- Most clubs require (or recommend) that the children still train during off season. Some do winter training with their club, some play indoor soccer.

*Tournaments- There are so many options when choosing soccer tournaments. It's usually up to each team which tournaments they would like to enter. Some like to stay in Kentucky to compete, while many others like to travel out of state. Regardless, most children and parents need to be prepared to play at least 3-4 games on tournament weekends.

*Travel -This can vary as well. Travel is definitely required in Select Soccer. Especially for tournaments and away games. Again, these are all questions to ask the coach before/after tryouts.

Frankfort Fury is a big joke!
Select soccer is not any better.
There are no real games, only play dates. Who wants to drive to Indiana for a play date? You pay ALOT more than what they tell you also.
I know several kids that dropped out 1/2 way thru because they were so bored. It's not really Select anyway, because everyone gets in. You would think Select would be a good select group but everyone gets in no matter how they play.
You are better off playing rec soccer but the Y is pretty lame too.

Not!!", where in the hell was your kid playing????? Sounds like academy to me. And that is not select . They take all kids. And as far as select goes, only Fury takes kids that aren't good enough to play.

That all depends on how old your child is, sex of child and where you would like for them to play. Most teams have formed but I'm sure there are some teams out there that need players.

I have to agree with the previous poster, it sounds to me like you had your child in one of the Academies. Academies were developed to give younger children the opportunity to receive better training from more qualified coaches. All while having fun. This is not meant to be competitive. It's unfortunate that you had a bad experience.

As far as it " not being Select because everyone gets in", I beg to differ. Don't get me wrong, you definitely have your teams that have to pick up players in order to have enough for a team. This usually occurs in the Smaller Clubs where very few children try-out. Even then though, not every child that tries out for every team will make it.

If you had attended even two of the try-outs this season that I listed above you would have seen this. Hundreds of children were turned away between LFC and Javanon alone. There were 75-100 children trying out for each age group.

Most Clubs that have this kind of a turn out create multiple teams and place children on teams according to their level of play. This is why you have Elite, Premier and Classic teams. Even then not all children receive a spot.

I've listed links to the various leagues that most teams in Central KY participate in. Their GAME SCHEDULES are posted here. There is no such thing as a "Play Date".

You should look them over.

www.midwestregionalleague.com

If you need further convincing that these Clubs do in fact have Competitive teams, I invite you to attend a game. Choose a game from a bigger Club, boys or girls, as young as U12. I guarantee you will change your mind.

SupaStar is exactly right. Unfortunately for you, Frankfort does not have the administration here that gets the word out and explains options for select soccer since there really isn't any offered here. If you consider the Y for soccer you'll never get better. You must go out of town to Lexington or Louisville to get quality coaching. It will cost you more but you get what you pay for. Very few teams from Frankfort ever play in the Premier leagues. KSSL is your best bet to see what your travel schedule would be like.
