Good Evening SBYSL Families!!

Just a couple of reminders for this week:

Picture Day – Sept 25th

A separate email will be going out this week regarding picture day. Our families are not obligated to purchase pictures. However, we do encourage all our players to participate in a team photo. There will be no picture forms. The photographer does everything digitally. More information to come!

Our Players:

All our players are asked to arrive 15 mins before their game time in uniform, ready to play. SHIN GUARDS are mandatory (wear under socks)!! All players need them. Soccer cleats (non metal) are mandatory for ages 6 & Up, our 3’s, 4’s & 5’s can wear sneakers. Bring plenty of water to stay hydrated. Sunscreen is also suggested.


Parking is available for our SBYSL Families on Decatur St, on FSK parking lot and behind FSK School, along Andre St and on the Parking Lot adjacent to Banner Field. PLEASE do not park on Latrobe Park Terrace! This is a residential street convenient to the fields, however it is very small and we want to be kind to our neighbors by not taking their parking spots.


The Locust Point Rec Center should be open on Saturdays and the bathrooms should be unlocked at the field house at Banner Field.


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 at the grass fields are asked to stay 3 feet from the field lines. Do not crowd the player benches and coaches. A great option is for parents to sit opposite field from the player benches for our 5’s, 6’s and 7’s and U8 Girls’ leagues.


This virus is still lingering. SBYSL is committed to the safety of our players and volunteers.
