Registration Information

Registration for the Fall 2018 Season is Open

SBSC's player registration platform is powered by Sport Engine (not Cal South).  The platform gives users control over their account and provides additional features like team pages (rosters, schedules, pictures, etc...) and mobile phone access.

If you do not already have a Sports Engine account, you will need to create one - see instructions below.  You will find lots of information about registration and the SBSC on our website.  If you have questions about registration, please contact Diane Antonelli (Email Registrar).

Age Groups / Divisions by Birth Year (Calendar Year)

In 2016, U.S. Soccer and Cal South (our governing organizations) mandated a change in which age groups / divisions will be created based on calendar years (birth years) rather than the school year (August 1st through July 31st).  In previous years, divisions consisted primarily of kids in two grades.  As a result of the change to calendar years, most divisions will span three grade levels.

Please note that U.S. Soccer and Cal South are not picking on SBSC.  These changes are being instituted throughout the U.S. to be more aligned with other soccer leagues around the world.  All U.S. clubs (recreational and competitive) are making the change to calendar years.  The initial impact will be felt by kids with birthdays between August 1st and December 31st.

It is important to know that kids will continue to play with and against other kids in their age range.  The beginning and end of the age range has just shifted. 

Our plan is to try our best to organize teams based on grade level.  Please contact our Registrar (Email Diane Antonelli) or a Division Coordinator if you have questions about registration and / or your child's division.  List of SBSC contacts can be found at this link.
