Click on REGISTER under the Recreation menu.
The next page you will see brings you into the Blue Sombrero system.
On this page – if you have joined us in our programs in the past, you will log in here to gain access into your family account. If you have forgotten your user name or password – click on “Forgot user name or password?” and this information can be sent to the email we have on file. If you are new to Brookside Soccer Club you will need to create a new account.
The next page should bring your into your Blue Sombrero account. For those new to Brookside Soccer Club, you will be asked for family/player information. Be sure you input your player(s) birthdate correctly, as that is the key component that prompts Blue Sombrero to “offer” the available programs for your age child.
You can click on REGISTER NOW under your player’s name to begin selecting which program(s) you want for each of your players. The programs you select will go into your shopping cart for final checkout.
Finally you will come to the SHOPPING CART page – where you select how you would like to pay: credit card or check (cash and money order if you come in person). Be sure you complete the checkout process to finalize your registration.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us: email@example.com
This year a field usage fee of $12 was added to help offset the costs of Swope Soccer Village field usage. As always, we are pursuing sponsorship opportunities to assist in lowering costs to our families.
The registration fee provides each child with a fun, safe and fair soccer experience. As part of that experience, each player receives a uniform that they keep, and they will play in at least seven games. New uniforms are distributed in the Fall season. The same uniform is used in the Spring season. Uniforms for players in the 1st Grade divisions and higher include a jersey, shorts and socks. Uniforms for players in the Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten divisions include a reversible jersey and a size-3 soccer ball.
We close registration so coordinators can finalize team rosters and distribute to coaches one week later. We close the registration system two weeks before the season begins. We do not accept registrations after the official closing date unless there are extenuating circumstances.
If you have problems registering, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Soccer leagues generally refer to divisions by age and list the “Under X” division name as well as a reference. Age-based divisions generally follow grade level because the birthday cut-off date is similar those used by most schools. We show the grade(s) generally corresponding to each Under (“U”) division in the table below.
Division > Grade
U19 > High School
U14 > 8th
U13 > 7th
U12 > 6th
U11 > 5th
U10 > 4th
U9 > 3rd
U8 > 2nd
U7 > 1st
U6 > K
U5 > Pre-K
Age-based divisions work well for keeping teams even, but cause problems when kids can’t play with classmates. Switching to grade level classifications should also eliminate some confusion, which generally causes last minute shuffling of players, and helps simplify the team-building process for our division coordinators.
An 80% refund may be requested for any Brookside Soccer Club recreational league season or camp/clinic no later than one day prior to the start of the recreational league or camp/clinic. If refund is approved, uniforms, soccer balls and all other materials provided by BSC MUST be returned within one week before monies are released. No refund will be approved on the first day of scheduled recreational league play or camp/clinic or beyond. League fees are Non Transferable and may be revoked at any time by staff. Unauthorized use results in an automatic loss of league membership privileges.
