Registration for Big Sun Youth Soccer Recreational League FALL 2019 is now open!
Before you register please take the time to read these instructions and information below.
During registration it is important to choose the correct age division for your player. Please use the chart below to aid in choosing the correct age division. Big Sun has a No Refund Policy. We are a not-profit recreational soccer league that is operated by a volunteer board and depends upon volunteer coaches and support staff. Although we will try to accommodate player request, there are no guarantees that your player will be able to choose his/her coach and/or teammates or what day and/or time practices and games are held.
Request for practicing on the same night (for siblings or friends to ride share) can be submitted here; this is a request and NOT a guarantee. Please provide your players name and the name of the sibling or friend.
PLEASE do not make arrangements/accommodations based on these requests until you have received a confirmation that your request has been approved. Big Sun receives a significant number of requests each season and we simply cannot accommodate them all. Our focus is to give every team the opportunity for fair play. Circumstances, such as weather, may affect practices and/or games and we will do our best to keep everyone updated.
We need coaches! Coaches determine practice days and times. Want to coach? Click here and let us know.
We need Team Sponsors! Team Sponsors may choose a specific coach’s team. Only TWO sponsor per team. (Sponsor logo will now go on the right or left sleeve of the player jersey.) Click here and let us know.
It is important that we all set a good example for the players. We ask that everyone respect the Referees decisions and understand that they are human and will most likely make a bad call during games. Remember this is youth sports, not the World Cup. Whether you agree or disagree with the decision, understand that the call made on the field is Final. Many of the referees are learning just as the players and coaches are. We want everyone to have a great soccer experience; that is our #1 GOAL! Participation and exercise is more important than winning. The conduct of everyone involved is the priority.
The best way to contribute to the improvement of our league is to get involved! Coach, sponsor, join the Board, volunteer on game days and setting up, etc.
