Hello SBYSL Families,
SBYSL Indoor Soccer 2023-2024 Season Information is HERE!
REGISTER TODAY!!!! Registration will close sooner than expected!!!
Our Indoor Registration exceeded our expectations with our Outdoor Players, leaving us with openings in just our U14 and U18 leagues.
***U8, U10 & U12 Leagues have extensive waitlists***
Waitlist: Please strongly consider registering for the waitlist if declined immediate registration. This will help us keep track of waitlist order to quickly accommodate if able.
After much anticipation, the SBYSL 2023-24 Indoor Soccer registration is quickly approaching! The turf at Meyers Pavilion has been undergoing renovations and the end product is set to be nothing short of amazing upgrades for our players. Due to these renovations, we are awaiting final permits, but would like to be ready to spring into action when given the green light. A member of our planning committee has been able to visit the site in person and witnessed a beautiful turf being laid down and received a first hand report that renovations are on schedule to be completed early December. To accommodate, we are planning to start our Indoor 2023-2024 season on December 9th, with a little built in wiggle room just in case there is a construction set back. Please know we are doing all we can on our end to ensure a timely start and an awesome season for our players on a brand new field! Please read below for important information to consider for registration and participation.

Greetings SBYSL Families!
Saturday is expected to be beautiful!!! Remember to keep your player(s) hydrated and put on sunscreen!
***Port to Fort 6k***
There is a race that will affect our players arrival to the field. It is strongly encouraged for our parents and players to walk, bike or scoot to the fields in the morning.
The route for the race is as follows:
Parking will be limited at the fields as the neighborhood is looking for parking since it is restricted on Fort Ave.
If you plan to drive – other routes into Locust Point include the access road along parallel to I95 by the cruise terminal, it will drop you at Andre Street near Banner Field. There is a lot next to Banner and street parking on Andre. You can use the Key Hwy Loop Road, which brings you at Domino Sugars and UA. This drops you at Hull Street, you will be able to park on any residential street on that side of E. Fort Ave.
Please allow extra time to get to the fields.

As the weather turns cooler, please make sure to dress your players in layers. Soccer uniform jersey should be on top of sweatshirts/jackets. Long pants or leggings under soccer shorts.
Players should arrive 15 minutes prior to game time in full uniform (shirts, shorts, shin guards, socks, and cleats (sneakers for our younger kids), a bottle of water, and ready to play. Please remove all jewelry and watches/fit bits. Bring plenty of water to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen. SBYSL has hired someone to set up our fields in the mornings and to take down in the afternoons. However, we will need our Coaches, Parents and Players to assist in keeping our fields clean by picking up and disposing of all trash after games.
PLAYERS ON BANNER FIELD:
We are asking our players and teams that play on Banner Field to meet your teammates for warm ups outside the black fencing, near the dog park entrance to the field. You may enter the field at the last whistle. Having our teams meet directly on the fields and/or in front of the spectator benches becomes disruptive for families trying to watch their kids play.
Parents & Spectators at Banner Field are being reminded to stay in the stands and behind the black fencing to watch games. Parents are not allowed on the field.
Parents & Spectators at the games on the grass fields are asked to stay 3 feet from the field lines. Do not crowd the player benches and coaches. We are strongly encouraging our parents to sit opposite field from the player benches for our U6s, U7s and Co-Ed U9 and U8 Girls’ leagues.
Parking is available along Andre Street (by the tennis courts), on the Parking Lot next to the Banner Field, and Decatur Street (along the street, on school parking lot and limited parking behind school). PLEASE DO NOT park on Latrobe Park Terrace (the small street along the park - the one closest to the fields). The residents have limited parking as it is, so we do not want to take up their parking.
Construction is ongoing at the housing development project on Decatur St. Please use caution when traveling on Decatur Street.
We are expecting the bathrooms at the field house by Banner Field will be open for all our games.
We ask everyone to be ENCOURAGING to our players. Remember, this is a FUN league!!!
Monitor our website (sbysl.com) and our Facebook page (The Official South Baltimore Youth Soccer League) and the Game Changer App for all league updates.
