Greetings SBYSL Families!!!
Time to get this Fall Season started!!!
Thank YOU for registering your child with SBYSL. We look to be starting the season with 500 players this year!!
We still have room in our 14/17 League. Most of our 14 yr olds are 8th graders…so this is not considered a High School League. We see this league as a less structured “pick up” league as we do not have practices and we usually have enough to just split into two teams. If you know of anyone wanting to play soccer in a pick up format, have them reach out to us.
August 5th – Coaches Meeting. Coaches will be receiving a separate email. If you have not signed up to be a coach and are interested, please email the league. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
August 10th – Evaluations for Ages 6 -13 (Birth Years 2006-2013)
All registered players are encouraged to attend evaluations to aid the coaches for the drafting process to make the teams even. ALL REGISTERED PLAYERS WILL BE ON A TEAM!!!
Week of August 12th – Coaches will gather for the drafting process
August 17th, Aug 24th, Aug 31st – Turf Field available for practices
Week of Sept 1st – Coaches will pick up team uniforms
Saturday, Sept 7th – OPENING DAY!!! Festivities will start at 10am, games will follow soon after. Locust Point Festival is this day as well.
Fields and game times:
All games will be played on Saturdays at the fields in Latrobe Park. Our players ages 3 – 7 (birth years 2012- 2016) will play on the grassy fields behind FSK school. Ages 8 & up will play on the Turf Field. Our older players will play on Tuesday evenings as well.
Game times on the grassy fields will range from 9am – 2pm. Game times on the Turf Field will be 9am – 4pm.
Schedules will be available the end of August.
All our Coaches are VOLUNTEERS! Practices will be set by your child’s coach at a time that is convenient for them.
All registered players interested in a Girls’ League – stay tuned. We are trying to get Friday Evenings for Clinic for the girls. Our registered girls are to play in the Co-Ed League – the all girls clinic is just the beginning stages of establishing an all girls league.
Your child’s registration fee covers their Uniform (shirt, shorts, socks). All players are required to have Shin Guards. Soccer cleats (non metal) are required for ages 5 & up. Our 3’s & 4’s can wear sneakers. A soccer ball is encouraged for practicing at home. Please be sure the child’s name is on the ball if it is coming to the fields. Sometimes Dick’s and Modell’s might have a soccer package that includes shin guards and soccer shoes and a ball.
Many Thanks to all of you for your patience while we get our season in order.
