We as a staff want to give another update to ensure all information is being received as we continue to have numerous new registrations and move closer to starting yet another fun-filled season. Please see below as this information may answer any questions you have.
Player Placements- We are continuing to move through each grade and placing players on their appropriate team based on the information we received during the registration process. Parents, you can see which team your child has been placed on by logging in to your LeagueApps account (the same account used during registration). On your account dashboard, there is a section titled My Child’s Activities. On there, you can see which team your child has been placed on and can click on the name of the team to see who else has been placed on the team with your child. Also within the My Child’s Activities section, it will tell you if you have or have not paid the registration fee. Your child will not be placed on a team until registration payment is received.
Players who have not been placed on teams: We generally look for more registrations to come in from children who attend your child’s school and are also looking to be placed on a team in an effort to have them on a team with some familiar faces. As we get closer to the end of registration, we form these new “Pool” teams and begin finding a volunteer coach for the team, which is generally a parent volunteer. If your child does not have a team they are joining and you are interested in coaching your child, feel free to reach out to Kevin email@example.com or Stanley firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coaching Placements- As of 12:00 pm today (July 26), we have received all team submissions via the Google form that has been sent out. Louisiana Soccer Association has been moving over to a new system and it has caused a delay with getting our new coaches’ background checked and registered. Returning coaches with up-to-date risk management statuses/background checks have been placed on their teams and can view their team page on their LeagueApps account dashboard by clicking on their team name within the My Staff Assignments section. Coaches, you can see contact info for your team members to set up external communications or communicate via the message feature on the team page. Once we can begin clearing new coaches and coaches with expired risk management/background checks, those coaches will be able to do the same. Those coaches can feel free to reach out to Kevin email@example.com if interested in finding out how many players have been added to the team at this time.
Uniforms/Gear- All recreational players through 5th grade will need to have the red and white BRSC recreational jerseys. In each game the home team wears white and the away team wears red. Players on older teams should confirm with their coach that their team will be wearing the BRSC recreational jerseys before purchase. They can be purchased in store or online at Third Coast Soccer. The jerseys on the website are the Recreational Entrada 18 Jerseys. Here is a link to the jerseys: https://
PreK-2nd grade players are not required to wear cleats but shin guards are required at all ages to prevent injury. Shin guards, cleats, socks, and shorts do not have to be purchased at Third Coast Soccer but they do have plenty of gear available at the store. Their knowledgeable staff can assist you in purchasing any gear you may need. For those new to soccer, just be sure that socks worn during games and practice are long enough to cover the shin guards and that cleats are soccer-specific (ie no metal or sharp studs like in football or baseball).
Practices- There have been a few coaches asking about the practicing schedules. Our Recreational Coaching Director Stanley Johnson will be getting in touch with coaches as we move closer to the season start date about practice options at our parks.
As a staff, we’re here to help make sure your family has a fantastic experience playing in our recreational soccer league. Feel free to reach out to Kevin firstname.lastname@example.org or reply to this email if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. Thanks!
