When does practice start?
Each coach determines when their team will start practice. The coach will notify his/her players via email or phone and let them know of the start date. Typically the teams start practicing two weeks prior to the season.
Where are practices held?
The coach will typically schedule practices around either the school the players are from or in the neighborhood where the majority of the kids live. All BREC parks are open for use by our soccer teams. In addition, you may contact local schools to get permission to practice on their facilities, which can be covered by our insurance at your request. Please contact the office for insurance information.

U9 – U12 teams may practice up to twice per week from 1 hour to 1 ½ hours.
U13 and above teams usually practice twice per week for 1 ½ hours
How do I find out what team my child is on?
Once you have registered you can login to your Blue Sombrero account by clicking here to check on the placement of your child. For help with this please contact Morgan Bellington via email by clicking here. Due to the high volume of registration near the start of the season it may take 3-4 business days for your child to be placed on a team. If you have not heard from your coach one weeks prior to the first games, please contact the soccer office, phone 225-924-2157 for your player status.
