INTRODUCING BLUE SOMBRERO - NEW REGISTRATION PARTNER

Hello BENSC Families,

BENSC has partnered with Blue Sombrero for our future registration needs.  We signed on with them in April 2017 to align with Nebraska State Soccer's technology partner.  Nebraska State Soccer uses Affinity, which is owned by Dick's Sporting Goods.  Blue Sombrero is also owned by Dick's Sporting Goods, and will be connected to the Affinity system that Nebraska State Soccer uses.

You will create a new account with Blue Sombrero.  Our 'Register Now' button has been linked to the Blue Sombrero registration website.  Once on this site, please look under the News Articles for helpful links to create your account and to register.

Please see the "Important Information" section directly below before registering.

If you have any questions, please email registrar@benningtonsoccer.org

Thank you!

Bennington Soccer Club


IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING NEW BLUE SOMBRERO REGISTRATION SYSTEM

Before you begin the registration process, below are some important updates to be aware of:

  • Chrome Browser - Blue Sombrero is most compatible with Chrome.  If you are having any difficulties using another browser, please try Chrome.  Also, if you have any difficulties on a mobile device (phone/tablet) please try on a computer or laptop.
  • Birth Certificate Upload - will be required with Blue Sombrero so we are in compliance with Nebraska State Soccer regulations.  You will be prompted to upload the birth certificate to each player's profile in Blue Sombrero.  Some parents have reported the Birth Certificate upload pop-up box may take 2-3 minutes to complete the process before you are able to move on to the next step in the process.  Thank you for being patient if this happens to you!
  • Player Photo - Please remember to add a head shot of your child to their Blue Sombrero player profile.  This head shot will be used for their player pass that is used at the beginning of each game for team check-in by the referee.  The head shot photo is mandatory for competitive players (Birth Years: 1999-2009) and strongly encouraged for developmental players (Birth Years: 2010-2014).  The player head shot should be similar to a driver's license photo so the referee can easily identify the player with their picture.
  • Seasonal Registration Programs - Blue Sombrero requires each player to register for each season vs. the full year all at once.  We still offer the reduced pricing if players register for both Fall and Spring at the same time vs. only registering for one season, or for registering for Fall now and Spring later this year or early next year.  You will need to select both seasons (i.e. Fall 2017 & Spring 2018) and add them to your cart to "build" the full year registration option.  The reduced price is applied to the Spring 2018 program.
  • Competitive Age Registration Fees - Players born in 2009 or before will not see a registration fee until the player is assigned to a team.  Your registration email confirmation will show "Tryout Fee $0.00" when you initially register.  Once the player is placed on a team in the system, you will be notified and will be able to pay online in full or by our payment plan.  For new players in Spring 2018, we plan to assign players to teams in February 2018.

These leagues manage the match scheduling process. The games for the Fall should start in late August/early September and end in October.  The games for the Spring should start in late March/early April and end in May.  Most teams play a minimum of a 6-8 match schedule depending on number of teams in their division.

Teams play at various fields in the Omaha metro area. Some travel may be required (ie. Bellevue, Blair, Elkhorn, Fremont, Gretna, Millard, Murray, Nebraska City, Omaha, Papillion, Plattsmouth, Ralston, Springfield, Lincoln, York, Council Bluffs, IA, Glenwood, and IA, Sioux City, IA).

Practices - location and number of - will be determined by the coach. Location may vary depending on field availability throughout the City of Bennington.

Teams will likely compete in one or more tournaments during the season. This is organized by the team coach and tournament fees are in addition to the regular registration fee. 

Due to High School soccer in the Spring Season, we usually do not have enough players born between 1999-2002 to form BENSC teams for these birth years in the Spring.
