RECREATION FAQ

If you have questions, we have answers. Give us a call at (225) 924-2157 or email our Recreational Director, Morgan Bellington, if you do not see the answer to your question listed below.

When do the seasons run?

There are two seasons to a playing year, Fall and Spring. There are eight games in each season.  The fall season runs September - November, and the spring season runs February - April.

When is registration?

Registration is open twice a year.  Fall registration is open July- August and spring registration is open December- January.

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.

HOW DOES TEAM PLACEMENT WORK?

Once registered, all players go into 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 grades are at each campus?

Burbank:  Pre-K- 12th Grade
Central: Pre-K- 5th Grade
Independence:  Pre-K- 2nd Grade
Zachary:  Pre-K- 4th Grade
West Feliciana: Pre-K - 6th Grade

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.

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 before the start of the season.  Once you have volunteered to coach, you will receive emails from the program director regarding dates for courses.

How do I find out what team my child is on?

Once you have registered, you can log in 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 our staff to assign a player to a team. If you have not heard from your coach one week before the first game, please contact the soccer office, phone 225-924-2157, for your player status.

Where are the practices held?

Coaches typically schedule practices near 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. Also, you may contact local schools to get permission to practice in their facilities, which can be covered by our insurance at your request. Please contact the office for insurance information.

How often do we practice?

While each team's coach determines the team's practice schedule, BRSC recommends the following plan for practices:

  • Pre-K - 2nd grade: Practice once per week for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • 3rd - 6th grade: Practice up to twice per week from 1 hour to 1 ½ hours.
  • 7th grade and older: Practice twice per week for 1 ½ hours.

When does team 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 can I find my schedule?

Games schedules are posted one week before the start of the season. You can access the schedule here.
