Assistance Needed!

We need volunteers to help build a storage shed for league equipment!  Construction and use of this shed will save BSA $1000/year in storage costs.  If you’re available to help on Saturday, 9/22/12, please contact Robert Henry at 814-280-1070.

Fundraiser Due Date

Fundraiser money is due the week of September 23, 2012.  Please turn in a check for the amount owed to the coach of your child’s team; 1 box = $32.00, 2 boxes = $64, etc.  Make checks payable to Bellefonte Soccer Association.  If you have any questions contact Laine Seible (Fundraiser Coordinator) at teamseibel@embarqmail.com or 814.470.0376.

Fall Pictures

ALL players should attend picture day even if not purchasing individual photos.  Coaches and many players like to have a complete team picture.

Coaches will receive team t-shirts and picture order forms on Friday night, 9/7/12.  These will be distributed to each team Saturday morning just before your team’s scheduled picture time.

Please be ON TIME!  It will back up everyone if one player is late.  Be respectful of the photographers and listen to what they want you to do get the best picture.  Please direct questions to Katina Pacella at 814-441-7207 or dppkrp@verizon.net.

New BSA Website!

Welcome to BSA’s new website!  In addition to a refreshed design, this website makes it easier for the BSA administrators and volunteers to keep things up to date.  So check back periodically for updated news and information.

The previous website will remain available for a short time here:

Let us know if we’ve missed anything in the transition, and if you have any ideas or suggestions to make this website more useful, please let us know.

2012 Fall Season Registration

Registration for the 2012 fall season is now open, and will remain open until July 24. No late registrations will be accepted after that date. If you have questions, please review the FAQ section of this website, and if it is not answered there, please contact us.

Age Brackets

Use this table of birth dates to determine which age category is appropriate for your child:

Bracket Birthday
U19 8-1-1993 to 7-31-1998
U14 8-1-1998 to 7-31-2000
U12 8-1-2000 to 7-31-2002
U10 8-1-2002 to 7-31-2004
U8 8-1-2004 to 7-31-2006
U6 8-1-2006 to 7-31-2008

Beginning with the 2012-13 season, play-ups to the next age bracket will no longer be allowed in the inhouse/recreational league unless the child’s birthday falls within the month of August.  This rule is to help keep players with their true peers and classmates.
