Equipment & Uniform Questions:

Question:  What equipment does my child need in order to play this season?

Answer:  You will need to provide the following for your child to play this season:  soccer shoes (plastic cleats), shin guards, and a water bottle.  BBYSA will provide your child with a uniform (jersey, shorts, and socks) for the upper divisions and a t-shirt ONLY for 6U.  Soccer ball sizes:  6U = size 3 ball, 8U = size 3 ball, 11U = size 4 ball, & 14U = size 5 ball.

Game Cancellation Questions:

Question:  How do I know if a game has been cancelled?

Answer:  Your coach should let you know.  In addition, it should be posted on the website.   

Question:  What happens if not enough players show up to play a game, or our coach doesn't show up for a game?

Answer:  If only one player is missing, the other team will play down a player (e.g., only 4 players show up to play a team with 7 players so the teams will play 4 v. 4 for the 6U game).  If a coach doesn't show up or his/her designee sub, please email to make us aware of the issue and if a parent doesn't volunteer to sub for that game only, the team must fortfeit the game.
