Welcome to the home page for Belmont Soccer Parents, and thank you for visiting.
On these pages, intended for the parents of current and future BSA players, you will find everything you need to sign up your daughter or son to play for BSA, together with other useful information about the program and facilities.
All the information you may need for the season will be provided either on the website directly, or as downloadable files under the "Downloads" tab in the menu to the left. This information is updated each season, and most of it will be provided in the two weeks leading up to the first game of each season, so if you don't see something you need please check back again soon or use the feedback link to contact us.
We also feel it is very important that parents and players understand that this is a recreational and developmental league. This is not an academy and we are not trying to develop future World Cup stars.
Our coaches are all volunteers with varying degrees of soccer experience. They are helping your kids out, creating a fun, competitive environment for your children to develop as athletes. As a parent, if you feel you can help with your child's development, please volunteer to coach or assist for your team.
