Attention all BSA parents and teenagers (14+)
The Bellefonte Soccer Association is in need of referees! Refereeing is a great way to have fun and EARN SOME EXTRA MONEY! If you are interesting in becoming a PA West referee for our games, you can complete an upcoming entry-level class.
A grade 8 (entry level) certification course will be held in State College this summer. If you would like to attend, you must register online. Please take note that this course is only 8 hours in the classroom, but online module training and testing is required PRIOR to the course and must be completed and the online testing passed before attendance. The information is below:
- DATES: August 20 & 21, 2013
- TIME: 5PM – 9PM both days
Online registration MANDATORY here: http://www.pawest-referee.org/referee_clinics/88/
For more information, contact BSA Referee Assignor, Stefanie Redfern.
There will be a Parents’ Meeting on August 13, 2013, for families with players registered for Fall 2013 Soccer. The meeting will take place at 7pm in the Bellefonte Elementary School auditorium. Please plan to attend!
- Coaches and Teams will be announced
- Volunteer opportunities will be announced
- Fundraiser information will be distributed
- Picture information will be distributed
The first game of the Fall Season is usually the 2nd or 3rd Saturday of September. Practices start a couple weeks prior (at each Coach’s discretion). These details are usually available within a week or so after the Parents’ Meeting.
7/19/2013 UPDATE – The issues with online registration have been resolved. If you have further problems, please send an email to BSA President and BSA Communications Chair so we can assist.
Registration for the 2013 fall season is open from 15 June 2013 through 19 July 2013. No late registrations will be accepted. Registration is $60 per child for inhouse/recreational league and $65 per child for travel league. If you have a question, review the FAQ section of this website, and if it is not answered there, please contact us.
Use this table of birth dates to determine which age category is appropriate for your child. Play-ups to the next age bracket in the inhouse/recreational league are only allowed if the child’s birthday falls within the month of August. The goal of this rule is to keep players with their true peers and classmates.

We are pleased to offer the following soccer programs this summer.
BSA Summer Pick Up and Play CANCELLED DUE TO LOW ENROLLMENT
What puts the US behind other countries in terms of soccer development and success? It’s simple – we don’t play as much. In many countries youth touch a ball year-round just by playing pick up soccer. BSA’s Coach Coordinator, Blair Richards, would like to extend that opportunity to players within the Centre Region. The format will consist of small-sided and full-size pick up play. Teams will vary week-to-week by age group. No drills, no coaching, just play and have a good time!
- Dates: First session is Wednesday 6/26/13, and will continue every Wednesday for 6 weeks from 6 – 7pm (excluding 7/3/13). The dates are 6/26, 7/10, 7/17, 7/24, 7/31, and 8/7.
- Ages: 7 – 14 years old
- Location: Payne Field
- Cost: $30 for 6 sessions, $25 for players that participated in the winter technical training sessions at the YMCA
- Registration: To register, e-mail Blair Richards at email@example.com. Include the child’s name, gender, date of birth, parent’s email address, and whether child participated in the Winter Technical Training. Payment may be turned in at the first session. Checks should be payable to ‘Bellefonte Soccer Association’.
