How long is the season?

Teams will typically start their season in August and end in June of the following year.

When will games be held?

League games will be held on Saturdays and Sundays only. Tournament matches will be typically be held on Saturdays and Sundays although there may be some matches held on Fridays or Mondays depending upon if the tournament is held over a holiday weekend. Please consult with your manager if you have any questions about game or practice times.

Tryouts for the 2019-2020 season will be held starting the week of May the 14th. Please check out our tryout page for more information.

My son is interested in becoming a goalkeeper. Does the club offer additional training? Yes!

If you are interested in having your player learn more about the goalkeeping position please email our Boys Goalkeeping Coach Derek Biss at dbiss@bethesdasoccer.org . Players must be a current BSC player to participate in goalkeeper training.
