Concession Stand Menu Additions
Updated Friday, November 20, 2020

Starting with the scrimmages tonight we will be serving hot chocolate, coffee as well as macaroni and cheese at our concession stand.  Be sure to stop by and warm up.

As a reminder, there are no workshops/practices or scrimmages next week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.


New Logo Contest Reminder

Updated Tuesday, November 17, 2020

Just a reminder that our new logo contest is still going on through the end of the month.  

The only requirement is that the logo must fit into a 4" x 4" square.  However, it may be any shape, and preferably look like a soccer club emblem, though we are open to unique designs if they are soccer related.


Please submit designs to either of the following:

Belleview Soccer Club
PO Box 186
Belleview, FL 34421

or

craigp@belleviewsoccerclub.com

All submissions must be received by 11:59 pm, November 30, 2020.  We are not responsible for lost submissions.  There is no cost to enter and you do not need to be a member of the club to enter.  By submitting the logo, you agree to let us use the logo for any purpose we see fit, including but not limited to use on uniforms, stationary, and on social media.  

Also, the logo, if selected, becomes a trademarked property of Belleview Soccer Club.  However, we will make sure you get your name plastered all over as the designer.

We look forward to seeing your ideas!

Weather Cancellation
Updated Monday, November 9, 2020

Due to inclement weather, all practices/workshops are cancelled for this evening (Monday, 11/9/20).


Some Changes and Reminders
Updated Friday, November 6, 2020

Starting with the scrimmage tonight, we will be returning the benches to the team areas of the field. With the return of the benches come the return of some rules.

  1. All spectators (parents, family, friends) MUST be seated across the field from the player areas. The only people allowed in the player areas are the coaches, league staff, and of course, the players. The reason for this is that our sanctioning body (the organization that makes our rules), which is the Florida Youth Soccer Association, requires anyone in the player area to have a background check on file. All coaches and league staff members have this background check done as part of the onboarding process to the league. The player areas will be marked with signs to make them visible.
  2. Offensive language and unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated. This includes both players and spectators. We have no problem with parents yelling encouragement to their kids, or even voicing disappointment in some cases. However, we will not tolerate foul and/or abusive language, especially that which is directed at the players, coaches, referees, and staff members. Anyone engaging in this behavior will receive a warning. But if it is repeated or severe, the offenders may be asked to leave the property, either for the rest of the game or practice, or permanently. The referees, when present, will be given the leeway to eject both players and spectators from the game if there is any verbal abuse. The last thing we want to do is keep anyone from participating, but we want everyone to have the most fun possible and teach good sportsmanship, abilities and talents to the fullest. We ask that everyone: players, coaches, parents, family members and our league staff follow that mission as well.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

New Logo Contest
Updated Monday, November 2, 2020

Calling all local artists!  As part of coming back strong in Spring 2021, we will be having a contest to select a new logo for our club.  The contest will start this Friday, November 6, 2020 and will run through the end of the month.  Our Board of Directors will decide on the logo during the first week of December.  We will accept drawings of the logo mailed to our PO box (sorry, we cannot return them once we receive them), scanned images of the logo sent via email,  photos of the logo sent via email, or a digital image of the logo sent via email.

The only requirement is that the logo must fit into a 4" x 4" square.  However, it may be any shape, and preferably look like a soccer club emblem, though we are open to unique designs if they are soccer related.


Please submit designs to either of the following:

Fall Season Schedule
Updated Sunday, October 4, 2020

We are now on track to start our limited fall season on Monday, October 5, 2020.  The following is the schedule for our skills workshops.  All workshops start at 6 pm and will take place at the soccer fields.  For the scrimmages please click on the "Rec League Schedule" above.

Please note that this is not like the practices in a normal season where we have age groups on either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday.  We do not have as many coaches participating in this season so we are somewhat limited to the nights we can offer.  If more coaches are willing to participate, we can offer additional days.  We apologize if this causes an inconvenience.


Fall and Spring Season Information
Updated Saturday, September 26, 2020

Please note: We will not be doing in person sign ups  on Saturday 9/26/20.  We will be posting information in the next day or two on how to sign up if you must pay in person.  Please keep an eye here and Facebook page for this information. Thank you.

To all players, parents and friends.   Please read this in its entirety as it has some very important information regarding the upcoming fall and spring soccer seasons.  

This past Friday evening our Board of Directors met to discuss the upcoming seasons.  Unfortunately there were not enough players registered to have a regular fall season.  In light of this, we are going to conduct a limited fall season and resume regular season play in the spring.  

“What does this mean for me and my youth player(s)?”

For a reduced fee of $35 per player (to cover insurance and background checks for the coaches and staff) we will be offering two (2) skills workshops during the week, on either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday, with scrimmages on Friday evenings.  The exact schedule for the workshops and scrimmages will be posted later this week but they should be similar to the schedules we had for the practices and games last season.  The workshops will begin the week of October 5 with the first scrimmage to be held on Friday, October 9.  Only for this fall season, instead of having actual teams, we will be grouping the players in their respective age groups for these workshops and scrimmages.

Registration Information:

  1. If you have already registered your player for the fall season you can pay the $35 fee on TeamSnap starting this coming Tuesday morning (September 22).  You will not need to do anything else other than pay the registration fee. 
  2. If you have not registered yet, the registration and payment will be open Tuesday morning on TeamSnap.  
  3. If you have already registered and you do not want your player join us for the fall you do not need to do anything as we will not process any player who has not paid.  
  4. If you register for the fall season and choose to stay on through the spring season, we will be deducting the $35 from your spring registration fees.  
  5. The registration link to TeamSnap is https://go.teamsnap.com/forms/243633 but will not accept payments until Tuesday, September 22.

We will also be accepting registrations and payments in person at the concession stand during the Friday evening scrimmages.  There is no closing date for the fall season registration as players may sign up at any time since they are not assigned to teams, but players cannot participate in either the workshops or scrimmages unless they have paid the registration fee.  

Uniforms will not be provided for this limited fall season as they will not be necessary for the scrimmages.  However, players will still be required to purchase their own cleats and shin pads as their use is mandatory per the club rules.  There also will be no photo day for the fall season.

“What happens if I do not choose to register for the limited fall season?  Can I still register for the spring season?”

Yes.  If you choose to not register for this limited fall season you may still register for this coming spring season when the registration for that season opens in 2021.  However, the fees will be the “full” registration fee.  We are planning resuming our regular game and practice schedules for the spring season.  

Please keep an eye to both our website (https://www.belleviewsoccerclub.com) and our Facebook page for more details.

We would like to thank all of your for your patience and understanding during these trying times and we look forward to seeing you either this fall or spring.
