Before you begin the registration process, below are some important updates to be aware of:
Chrome Browser - Blue Sombrero/Sports Connect 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/Sports Connect 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/Sports Connect 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 and strongly encouraged for developmental players. 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 - Nebraska State Soccer requires clubs to open registration for one season at a time. You cannot register for Fall and Spring soccer at the same time.
$3.00 Transaction Fee - Effective 12/4/19, Sports Connect will charge a $3.00 transaction fee for the initial order (regardless of the number of players on the order). If the registration is set up on a payment plan, each player on the payment plan will be charged an additional $3.00 transaction fee when the payment plan is collected.
Refunds - Refund request should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Refunds will only be considered if the request is submitted prior to the age group's second practice session less $15 administration fee. Refunds will not be issued after the start of the age group's second practice session. Refunds due to medical reasons will be reviewed by the Board on a case-by-case basis. Medical documentation may be required. The refund amount will be pro-rated based on the amount of time into the season and costs the club incurred.
1st & 2nd child are regular price, 3rd child and above receive $70.00 discount (each). Discounts are for registration fee only and applied to the least expensive player's registration fees.
There is a payment plan to help with the cost of registration fees. The first payment is due at the time of registration, the second payment will be due half way through the season. This date will be given to you during the registration process.
Every BENSC Coach will receive a 50% refund on registration fees for each child that plays for BENSC.
To receive this discount, each coach will need to fill out a Google Form (emailed to you during the middle of the Fall/Spring season) listing the team they coached and the number of children playing in the club.
All coaches must complete the 3 Coaching Requirements and fill out the Google Form to be issued a refund check.
