We recommend checking out Dick's Sporting Goods or Academy for package deals sold around this time frame. Thrift stores are also excellent places to find these items gently used. Amazon is also a reasonably priced source of these items. We have also started an online swap on our Facebook group page. Join us at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/635205286648041.


Concussion Policy

A new season brings new rules. Due to our insurance policy's requirements, if a player is hit in the head or suspected of having a concussion, they will be removed from the game/practice and cannot return to play/practice without receipt of a note from a physician clearing them for play. There are to be no exceptions to this rule. Please do not blame the Coach, they are just following mandated requirements.

To ease this new requirement in regards to location and cost, BYS has partnered with the nearby Innovative Urgent Care to offer you the required clearance for only $25 (regular $40). Innovative Urgent Care is located at 9910 W 1604 N, Suite 128, San Antonio, TX 78254. Please ask for Whitney Sanchez and mention BYS for your discount. Whitney has also graciously prepared the TBI documents you will need for your visit and they can be found here.


Uniforms

We HIGHLY recommend visiting the fields during registration to utilize the samples we have to best determine your child(ren)'s size of the uniform. Uniform orders are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. If you would like to order a replacement uniform and pay yourself, please contact soccer@mybridgewood.com and we will provide you with the details. Please note that BYS receives a volume discount on our uniform order, as such your individual order will be higher.

Picture Days

Picture days TBD.

Team Parents

In addition to hearing from your Coach, your Team Parent will also initially reach out to you regarding snack schedules. A Team Parent is there to help the Coaches out with non-coaching tasks. The Team Parent will also be contacting you over the season with items such as verifying the spelling of names for the trophies, End of Season (EoS) Party, and anything additional that the Coach requests. Could this Team Parent possibly be you? Please visit our Team Parents page for more details on this awesome opportunity.
