My son/daughter plays travel. Can they still play Rec?
Yes, their spring Rec fees are automatically paid if they paid through their travel team however, they still must sign up by the deadline to avoid the late fee.
How can I coach?
We invite all of our player’s parents to take part in what always turns out to be a fun and very fulfilling experience as a coach or assistant coach. As a parent, you are asked to volunteer to coach when you register your child online. You may register yourself and spouse as Guardians and you may volunteer to coach or assist during that process.
I don’t live in Bay Village. Can my son or daughter still play?
My daughter just had her ears pierced, can we cover the earrings with tape or bandages?
No. For the safety of your daughter and the other players, earrings and other jewelry (except medical ID’s) are not allowed.

Go to baysoccer.org and find the link to the team of Board members and call anyone to volunteer. Or, look for a Board member at the Cahoon Park shed during the soccer games.
I would like my kids to be on specific teams, how is this possible?
With nearly 1,200 players, all managed by a group of volunteer parents and students, the Club cannot place players on a specific team.

When do games begin?
Spring games begin mid- to late April each year.
How are the teams selected?
Every effort is made to create equal teams. Teams are selected through a random, electronic draw. Players are sorted by talent level (asked of previous travel and recreational coaches) for older ages. For younger ages, players are sorted by “very energetic” or “less energetic”.
May I coach with a friend?
Yes, as long as both coaches do not have sons or daughters playing together on the age group’s “A” travel team.
How young can a player be to join soccer?
Players must be age 3 by April 1st to play spring rec soccer and age 3 by August 1st to play fall rec soccer.
