OPENING DAY SEPT 7TH - INFORMATION!!!
Tuesday, September 3, 2019

Greetings Coaches, Players and Parents!

Our 2019 Soccer Season is set to start on Saturday, Sept 7th! We are starting the season with 502 players – ages 3-17!!! THANK YOU!!!

By now you should have heard from a Coach. If not, please contact the league!!

 

Your Coach has picked up uniforms and should be distributing them to you this week.

 

OPENING DAY - Sept 7th:

All players should arrive at the Banner Field ready to line up BEFORE 9:45am. Please come in Uniform! Our Opening Ceremonies will start at 10am. Games will start immediately after.

 

Our 3yr old and 4 yr old Leagues will not play on Opening Day, but are strongly encouraged to participate in the Opening Day Ceremony.

 

Locust Point Festival:

The Festival is the same day as our Opening Day. We are encouraging our SBYSL Families to stay and enjoy the festival! There will be a "Kids Zone" sponsored by FSK PTO with games, crafts, snacks and other fun activities.

 

All Game Days:

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. 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 all trash after games.

Parking:

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.

Concessions:

We do not have a food vendor, however we will be checking with Miss Twist to see if she can visit us on Saturdays and we will be reaching out the Local School PTO's for fundraising opportunities for them.

 

Bathrooms:

The Locust Point Rec Center is supposed to be open on all our game days. We are hoping the City Recs & Parks unlocks the new bath house at Banner Field and there are Port a Potties on the grass fields by FSK.
