1. BSSL is an Illinois Youth Soccer Association (IYSA) sanctioned league, which allows players to play at state sanctioned tournaments.


2. Teams are selected by the BSSL Board, which makes every attempt to balance them fairly by age and experience.


3.  It is very difficult for BSSL to honor requests for children to be on certain teams.  Only requests for siblings playing in the same division will be honored. Any questions please email Kelly at


4. No existing or previously formed teams will be allowed. BSSL does this so every player gets to experience different coaching styles/techniques and make new friends. 

5. A Photocopy of the player's Certified Birth Certificate is required at the time of registration for players who are new to BSSL.  A picture or scan is acceptable and can be uploaded during online registration or emailed to


6. BSSL IS AN ALL VOLUNTEER LEAGUE.   The goal is to make soccer a fun and rewarding experience for all children, this goal cannot be achieved without the help of our volunteers.  When registering your child(ren) for soccer, we ask for a minimum of 2 volunteer service slots per child per season (each slot is 60-90 minutes, maximum of 6 slots per family).  Thank you for volunteering as we CANNOT operate this league without you.


7.  Players who drop from the league for any reason are subject to a $25.00 processing fee.  NO refunds will be allowed two weeks after the registration deadline.


8.  The BSSL Board does it's best to keep division ages as close as possible. However, we reserve the right to cancel or combine age divisions due to the number of players.
