IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING BLUE SOMBRERO/SPORTS CONNECT REGISTRATION SYSTEM

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 (Birth Years: 2001-2011) and strongly encouraged for developmental players (Birth Years: 2012-2016).  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. The current registration period is for Fall 2020.
  • $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 in April 2020 vs. another one time $3.00 transaction fee.
