We also offer an instructional session for players ages 3-5. The Mini and Little Striker's sessions have a flat fee structure. Discounts and late fees are not applicable. These sessions have a maximum capacity of 40 participants per session.

We place players by grade, which spans two consecutive calendar years.  Belle Clair is a recreational league and does not form teams by birth year. 
When registering, this is the grade you are entering in the new school year.

Coaches are required to contact each player on their roster, within two weeks of receiving the roster, to introduce themselves as the coach and to notify parents of the practice schedule.  We are always looking for new coachesEach coach will set their own practice schedule and location, independently of the league.  BCSL does not have access to practice schedules. The league is not able to place players on teams by practice schedule.
