Registration Information

Registration for the Fall 2020 Season Will Open May 27th!

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 Nicky Germon (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. As a result, some grades are listed in two divisions with most of the grade playing in the younger division.

These changes have been implemented 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 primary impact will be felt by kids with birthdays between September 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 Nicky Germon) 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.
