RECREATIONAL FAQS

When do the seasons run?

How do I register?

Registration can be done online by clicking here, coming in the office to register, or mailing in the printable form.

  • If you want to register for the Full Year select BOTH SEASONS when registering.

Who will coach my child's team?
BRSC Recreational coaches are volunteer parents or players who have completed background checks. We offer a Raising Cane's Volunteer Coaching Certification prior to the start of the season.  Once you have volunteered to coach, you will receive emails from the program director regarding dates for courses.

How to start a new Team?
If you are interested in starting a team for your son or daughter, and their friends/classmates please email Morgan Bellington.  

How does team placement work?
Once registered, all players go in to the "pool" of players in that grade.  Our staff then goes in and manually places all players on teams.  The placement process is the longest part of the registration period, so please allow 3-5 business days for your child to be placed.  

What is a pool team?
A pool team is a team created by the BRSC staff made up of players not returning to a specific team.  We use the placement preferences on your registration form to match players together.  Once created, BRSC will reach out to the parents to find a coach for the team.

How do I find out what team my child is on?
Once you have registered you can login to your Blue Sombrero account by clicking here to check on the placement of your child. For help with this please contact our Recreational Director, Morgan Bellington. Due to the high volume of registration near the start of the season it may take 3-4 business days for your child to be placed on a team. If you have not heard from your coach one weeks prior to the first games, please contact the soccer office, phone 225-924-2157, for your player status.

When does practice start?

Each coach determines when their team will start practice. The coach will notify his/her players via email or phone and let them know of the start date. Typically the teams start practicing one week prior to the season. 

Where are practices held?
The coach will typically schedule practices around either the school the players are from or in the neighborhood where the majority of the kids live. All BREC parks are open for use by our soccer teams. In addition, you may contact local schools to get permission to practice on their facilities, which can be covered by our insurance at your request. Please contact the office for insurance information.
