Referral Discount

If you refer a new player to the Bruce Samlan Soccer League, we will waive a two credit (each credit is 60-90 minutes based on volunteer service selected) mandatory volunteer commitment for the season. To qualify, the new player must write-in your full name on their online registration form under "How did you hear about Bruce Samlan?", select Other (on "How did you hear about Bruce Samlan?") and input your full name into the text box.  Once the new player has paid in full, we will waive your volunteer credits (2-3 hours).

Playing Age and Division Breakdown

How is my players age determined?

Year Season Ends - Birth Year = Age Group

Fall 2018 to Spring 2019 (soccer season)2008 (birth year) = U11.

2019 - 2008 = 11.  Player is considered an 11 year old for purposes of determining what age group he/she plays in.

The BSSL soccer season overlaps two calendar years.  Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 is considered one soccer season.  The spring season calendar year (2019) will be used to determine your players age for our soccer season.

Only the birth year is used to determine a players age when deciding what age group your player is registered for.  Birth month and school grade are not taken into consideration when determining the age group your player will play in.

What division will my child be in?

Divisions are determined by age groups of registered players and the number of players who register within each age group. Only after registration is complete is it possible to predict the divisions of players and the number of teams in each division.  All efforts are made to field divisions inside of the players identifiable skill levels and such that fair league play can occur.  

A reference can be found here and shown in the below image to determine your player's playing age. 

Please keep in mind that BSSL usually combines playing ages (U10 includes U9, U12 includes U11, etc.)

Can my player "play up'?

If your son or daughter is unusually large or unusually skilled for his or her age, he or she can also "play up".  If you want your child to be considered for "play-up", please contact Director of Registration Darren Larsen at darrenlarsen.bssl@gmail.com.
