Recreational Registration

Scottsdale Soccer is a non-profit organization that provides soccer experiences for children and supports the development of student athletes in our community. Attention is on the whole athlete, with emphasis on character, teamwork, commitement and self confidence. Scottsdale Soccer is currently the largest soccer club in the State of Arizona. Our Recreational Program has an annual participation of over 3000 children who play in the Fall and Spring Leagues.

We offer a variety of programs that take place over the course of September through May. A brief overview of what our Recreational Program has to offer can be viewed below. For more information on any given program, please explore the corresponding links on the left navigation.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Scottsdale Soccer Recreational and Competitive Soccer Programs are intended to be mutually exclusive: Blackhawks Competitive Program players play for the Blackhawks Competitive Program and cannot also register for the Recreational Program. Likewise, Recreational Program players cannot also register and play for the Blackhawks Competitive Program.

Age Group Policy

Scottsdale Soccer's Recreational Spring Program is a pure grade / gender soccer program for players in preschool through 4th grade. Nearly all children are best served by playing soccer in their proper grade / gender group for reasons of safety and skills development.

The Board of Directors of Scottsdale Soccer may request proof of grade and / or age to be established. Failure to respond to such request can result in the immediate suspension of the player involved. A Discipline and Rules Committee Hearing may be convened on the matter.


Playing Down

No child at Scottsdale Soccer will be considered to play in a division younger than their established grade without a written request from a licensed medical doctor. The Scottsdale Soccer BOD VP of the Recreational Program must receive a written request from a parent, prior to team formation, with a doctor’s note attached. The Director or the Director’s designee will evaluate each request on a case-by-case basis, although it is not Scottsdale Soccer’s intent to allow children to "play down" a division.

 

Playing Up

Siblings one year apart in age / grade are eligible to participate on the same team. In this scenario, the younger sibling would "play up" in order to participate with their older sibling. Other than this, no child in the Scottsdale Soccer Recreational Program may play in an older division.

    - Check your spam/junk mail folder for the email

  Find the program of interest. look for registration, and follow that information.

 

Q7. How do I log into my account?

Q9. Is my order complete?

Answer: You can make sure that your order is complete by logging into your account and checking your order history.  You will be able to view all completed orders on your account screen.  If you are missing an order, it means your registration is not complete.  On the right side of your account screen, you will see a shopping cart area.  If you can see order details in this area, it means your order is not complete.
 
 
 
Q10. Tryout Acceptance - Why does my order show a $0.00 balance, when I am sure that I owe money?
Answer: Some clubs do not charge a tryout fee, so your account will show a $0.00 balance if you have just signed up to tryout.  Once the tryout acceptance emails have been sent out, you will be able to go back to your account and pay the full amount for the season.  If you need to check on whether or not your child has made a team, you will need to contact your organization directly.
 
Q11. My child plays with an older age groups and the system will not allow me to sign for the older division.  How do I sign my child up for the older group?
 
Answer: Most clubs only allow players to sign up for a specific age group.  If your child plays in an older group and that option is not available during registration, you will need to contact your club administrator so that the child can be placed in the older age group.
 
 
 
Q12. I do not want to pay via credit card.  Are there other options available?
 
 
Answer: This is decided on a club by club basis.  If your organization accepts payment by check, you will see that option on the checkout screen.  If you do not see this option on the checkout screen, this means that your organization does not accept check payments.  You will need to contact your organization directly to request a different method of payment.
 
 
Q13. How can I get a refund?
 
 
Answer: Refunds will need to be provided by the organization with which you registered.  To request a cancellation or refund, please contact your club’s administration directly.  Credit card information is not stored by Blue Sombrero, so all refunds will be provided by check.  Refund policies differ for each organization, so please check with your administrator for refund policy details.

Q15. I’m having trouble with registration (I get an error message or my system says I do not have access to view a page).  What should I do?
 
 
Answer:  If you get a message that says you are not logged in, chances are you need to clear out the cache on your internet browser.  This can be done by going to the “Tools” menu option and then clicking on “Delete Browsing History.”  Once the system has completed this, you can log out of the website and then log back in.  If you were in the middle of a registration, you will be able to get the registration in your shopping cart and pick up where you left off.
