The following chart indicates by birthdate where your Recreational child will be placed for the Spring 2010 season:
 
Born Aug. 1, 2003 - July 31, 2005
Superstars (Boys and Girls)
Born Aug. 1, 2002 - July 31, 2003

Boys U15-18 or Girls U15-18  **
 
**  Although U13-18 may continue to be formally grouped as a single age division, the Club will continue to attempt to form teams into U13-15 teams and U16-18 teams, and played against comparable aged teams in neighboring towns.  
 
  • Registration Fee & Work Bond:  will remain $65 per player.   If three or more siblings are registered with EBSC for the same season, you will receive a 50% discount beginning with the 3rd child.  This discount may not show up immediately, but instead may be issued later after verification by the Club.   A reminder that all families also must be willing to satisfy their $50 Work Bond through volunteer work, if requested (see EBSC Work Bond Policy).
  • Questions:  If you have any questions about the Recreational Programs, please first review our Recreational FAQ, also accessible from the Recreational League page.  If your question remains unanswered, please email the appropriate VP (contacts for all Recreational VPs can be found on the Recreational League page).  If you are having difficulties with the Registration process itself, please email the VP of Registration.
  • Travel Registration:  Spring-Only Travel is by invitation only.   If your player (U15 or older) has recieved an invitation to join a Spring-Only Travel team, you will be provided with a password by your coach.   Please do NOT register for the Recreational program, but make sure you select Spring-Only Travel. 
  • Coaches Needed:   We strongly encourange you to consider registering as a head coach, or an assistant.  The Club will take steps to assist you if you are just starting out.  Our Club continues to grow in enrollment, and we MUST have additional coaches to meet those needs.  Please make sure that you check the box indicating that you are volunteering to coach for your child in Spring 2010 - you may be checked for prior seasons, but that will not carry over to the coming season unless you specifically check the correct box.  Also, if one spouse is registering the other spouse as coach, please use the coach’s email address as the primary email account.
  • Review Your Data:  please double-check your data entry carefully - each season we encounter numerous delays placing children on correct teams due to their ages or genders being entered incorrectly.
  • Email addresses:   The Club, and your coach, will be contacting you throughout the season using your email address.   It is imperative that you enter your address correctly, and that it is an address you intend to check frequently for mail.
  • Special Requests - although we are maintaining a “special request” box on the registration form, no requests to be with a specific coach or player will generally be considered (with the exception of Superstars, who do not play competitive games).   The first priority of building teams is to make them as balanced as possible so players step onto the field knowing they have a chance to compete in the game, regardless of whether they actually win or not. Losing a tough game may be disheartening, but losing by 5 goals every game quickly turns players off the sport completely.   In addition to that concern, no player is entitled to be with the coach they think is the best coach - if we were to agree that one coach is better than the rest, than you must see that we cannot honor 12 requests for that coach season after season and turn down requests from 12 others for that same coach. We will, however, do our best to honor the following type of requests (though we cannot make any guaranty that a request will be honored): (a) to be separated from a particular player or coach due to personality conflicts, (b) to not be placed on a team practicing certain nights because of pre-existing conflicts, (c) requests to be on the same team as a family member or close relation, or (d) any extraordinary circumstances.   To be clear again, however, the Club cannot guaranty that any special request will be honered.  With over 1,000 Rec players, it is impossible to make any such guaranty.
  • Practice Nights - Each individual team will have it’s own separate practice schedule, as determined by the coach.   The team’s schedule must first and foremost be subject to the coach’s availability, because without the coach there cannot be a practice.  If there are any nights you absolutely cannot make practice, you MUST identify them in your registration - we then can do our best when forming teams to accomodate those conflicts, although we still cannot guaranty anything.  If you fail to list any such conflicts, however, do NOT ask later to be transfered to a new team due to such a conflict - we will not accomodate any such requests after teams are formed.      To be clear again, however, the Club cannot guaranty that your conflicts will be avoided
