You can find some details about the programs here.

How do I register?

How do I order a uniform?

If you are a first-time player on an Pre-Select or Select team, uniform ordering information will be sent to you from upon acceptance to a team. For additional information please see our Uniforms & Spirit Wear page. In the Recreational Program, uniform shirts are provided by the club.

Will my child be allowed to play other sports too?

Of course! Being involved in a variety of sports and activities when young is beneficial to proper development in many ways. However, we truly hope that we can make soccer your child's favorite sport.

Why am I not receiving important emails from the Club?

One reason may be that the emails are being intercepted by your email program as spam. The system we use for mass emails has the following sending addresses: [email protected], [email protected] and [email protected] “Whitelisting” these addresses (a process which varies from program to program) should alleviate the problem.  At the very least please add these addresses to your addresses book.

Another issue may be that we have the wrong email address for you. You can log in to your account to check your email address, and change it if need be.

If your team has an active Team Page and you are not receiving "Discussion" notifications from your coach or manager, please check your account settings by logging in to your account and clicking the gear button in the upper right. See that that you have selected "Yes" where it says "Please send me team notification emails."

What is Blue Sombrero and where can I learn more about using the website?

Why does the website try to make me re-register when I'm trying to access my team information?

It sounds like your browser is caching your login information so it makes it look like you're logged in, when in reality you need to log in every time you go to the site. Make sure you're logged off completely, then clear your cache (Ctrl + F5), which should refresh the page. After that when you log in, it should let you navigate the site normally and access the team pages, schedules, etc.

I have more questions, who can answer them?

Please send your questions to [email protected]. We'll try to get an answer for you as soon as possible.
