Greetings SBYSL Families!!
IT IS HERE!!! Fall 2023 Soccer Registration is NOW OPEN!!!
Before you register, please read below:
What can I expect?
SBYSL is committed to helping players develop and strengthen soccer skills in a fun environment, while also demonstrating sportsmanship, and improving confidence and leadership during friendly competition. SBYSL has worked to create a community feel at the soccer fields!
Who can play?
We welcome players of any skill level from three years old up to high school seniors (birth years 2006 to 2020). We will be offering Co-Ed and Girls’ Leagues this season (dependent on registrations)
What do I need?
All players will need to wear shin guards. Sneakers are fine for the younger players; older players may want to wear soccer cleats. Each player will receive a jersey, shorts, and socks. Jerseys are pre-ordered to ensure arrival before the season so coaches will fit sizes to players. Soccer balls are not required but recommended for practicing at home. Size 3 for ages 3-5; size 4 for up to age 12; size 5 for 13+.
When do we play?
Season starts 9/9/23 and ends on 11/11/23. All age-groups will have games on Saturdays at the fields in Latrobe Park in Locust Point, with our older groups having the opportunity for 1 weeknight game during the season, under the lights on the turf. Three and four year olds typically have the 9 am and 10 am time slots. The five year old and older groups play games between 10 am and 4 pm.
Is there a weekly practice?
Practices are at the discretion of our Volunteer Coaches. Our youngest players (3-5 yr olds) usually do not have weekly practice, Teams (6yrs old +) will typically offer a weekly practice. Last season, several age groups piloted multi-team group practices and received a great amount of positive feedback! Attendance at practice is not mandatory but encouraged as it’s a way to develop skills and socialize with teammates and peers in the age group. Plus, it’s FUN and an extra time to hang with friends (parents and players alike!). With our league growing and field space limited, practices may take place at Latrobe Park, Swan Park, Riverside Park, Federal Hill Park, and Patterson Park.
How do I stay in the know?
Please provide the most often checked email addresses when registering your child, and the emails of any parent/guardian needing to receive communication. For returning players, please UPDATE profiles to include current email addresses and add a second if needed. You can follow us on social media and we will be using the GameChanger App this year to help communicate schedules, game/practice reminders, and any other important info (rain cancellations, picture day, etc.).
We are looking for volunteers to help coach, assist coach, referee or be a part of our committees. If interested please indicate on your child’s registration. The Planning Committee will be hosting an information session on June 8th via Zoom. Sign up on this link: https://forms.gle/mt58ovS4m2fhR7cP6
