Fall 2017 Season Timeline - Please mark your calendars!

PARENTS: According to BASD, 6th Graders are NOT PERMITTED to participate in Middle School sports. See https://www.boyertownasd.org/Page/1277 for more information.

The backbone of the BSC Intramural Program is our group of VOLUNTEER coaches!    But if coaches are not available when it is time for practices to start, registration numbers will have to be cut and children won't get to play.  Avoid disappointment!  Please sign up to coach or assist with your child's team now.

 

Registration Opens: May 15, 2017

Late Registration Begins: July 1, 2017 until age division fills

When registration is opened, all roster spots will be made available. Age divisions may be filled before the late registration period begins.

Due to the way players and teams must now be reported to EPYS, Pre-School through 4th Grade is called INTRAMURAL and 5th through 12th is now called RECREATIONAL in the registration system.  BSC continues to regard both as parts of the BSC Intramural program.

PRE-K THROUGH 4th GRADE PLAYER TRANSPORTATION REQUESTS

  • In the intramural group, a maximum of two transportation requests (in date order received) will be allowed for any one player per age group.  Siblings in the same age group will count as one player. Example: Sally Smith is a first grade player.  John Fox and Louise Moyer request Sally for carpool purposes on January 10th and 12th.  This is OK.  Brenda Davis registers on January 20th and requests Sally as well.  This will not be allowed because Sally already has two requests
  • Stacked requests will not be honored.  From the above example: Brenda Davis requests to play with John Fox for carpooling.  This request will not be honored because John has already requested to play with Sally for carpooling.
  • All transportation requests will be reviewed and approved by the Intramural Director. The purpose of the change to transportation requests is to discourage "team building".  Requests that appear to be for the purpose of team building will not be honored or may be modified (ie, players in a stacked request may be placed on a different team that would still allow some carpooling.)  
  • Requests for specific coaches will not be honored at Pre-K through 4th Grade. Parents may ask for one coach that they do not want their child to have.

Coach Meetings and Roster Distribution: Thursday, August 3rd and Monday, August 7th at 7:15PM, Victoria Field Pavilion (Coaches should attend 1 session)

  • Pre-School and Pre-K - These groups meet at Washington Elementary in Barto on Saturday mornings.
  • Kindergarten through 4th grade - These age groups normally practice at Washington Elementary in Barto. If there is sufficient demand at the 3rd/4th Grade age group, some 3rd/4th Grade teams may practice at Padre Pio. 
  • 5th and 6th grade  - This age group normally practices at Washington Township Park, also known as Victoria Field and WTMA and possibly Padre Pio.
  • 7th through 12th grade - These age groups practice at various locations including: Washington Township Park (also known as Victoria Field Complex), Padre Pio and Middle Creek Field in Gilbertsville. Teams at these age groups are likely to rotate practice locations so as to give all teams access to larger fields or facilities.

Jr. and Sr. High School Soccer Tryouts (Fall Only)

PARENTS: According to BASD, 6th Graders are NOT PERMITTED to participate in Middle School sports. See https://www.boyertownasd.org/Page/1277 for more information.

If your child is selected for a Middle School or High School Soccer team and does not want to play BSC Intramural soccer, you may receive a full refund of your registration fees.  In order to secure a spot on an intramural team in the event your child would not be selected for a school team, we recommend that you register you child for Recreational soccer and ask for the refund if they are selected.  Many children have tried out for teams, were not selected and were not able to play Recreational soccer either because no room was left and they had not registered during the registration period. Avoid disappointment and register now!

BSC Intramural Program

Boyertown Soccer Club offers a structured Intramural Program that provides quality soccer instruction during two separate seasons; in spring and in the fall.  Our Intramural Program allows children ages 3-18 to play the game of soccer in a fun, educational environment with structured practice time and games.  The Intramural Program focus is player development while providing a great soccer experience to foster a love of the game in our children.

BSC Intramural Spring/Fall Age Group Information:

  • Pre-School & Pre-K – Meets once a week on Saturday’s for 45-60 minutes.  Participants will be provided a T-shirt.  The time will be split between skills and scrimmage.
