The Registration "Home" is not currently available.
The Spring 2022 soccer registration will be available on the youth league website starting December 1, 2021, and will end January 2, 2022. The age groups/divisions carry over from the Fall 2021 season. So the age groups for Spring 2022 will be:
U6/8: Birth Years 2014-2016
U9: Birth Year 2013
U10: Birth Year 2012
U11: Birth Year 2011
U12: Birth Year 2010
U13: Birth Year 2009
We offer a U6/U8 season, with clinics run by coaches as well as volunteers from the boys and girls high school teams. The clinics are held on Saturdays mornings for one hour for six weeks (typically running the same schedule as the older kids play in RBJSL).
The Spring travel season (U9 through U13) is intended to be more relaxed with less practices leading up to the games, and less practices during the season. Players are able to participate in both soccer and baseball programs in the Spring, and it is understood that baseball takes priority over soccer practices and games when conflicts arise. Due to field conditions, it can be difficult to arrange more than one or two practices before the start of the games. During the season, practices are at most once per week. The games usually start in mid-March and go through the end of April, with only six total games.
Unfortunately due to lack of golfer participation, this year's annual golf fundraiser at Willow Hollow will be postponed. We are currently looking to reschedule this fundraiser for sometime in spring 2022. We will be refunding golfers payment who did register in the near future and contacting all of the sponsors directly regarding refunds. This is very disappointing to have to announce as it is our primary fundraiser event for the 2021 year.
The Oley/Brandywine Boosters Club supports the legion baseball teams involved in the Patriots Post 217 organization financially by holding periodic fundraisers to offset the rising costs associated with playing American Legion baseball. It is important to note that the Boosters club has primarily funded the Jr. Legion prep team in past years to help offset the costs for the 13-14 year old age group. It is important to get new individuals involved in the Boosters club as many of the current booster members have players who have or will be aging out of the Legion program in the near future. We are actively seeking anyone who is interested in being part of the Boosters club to please contact me by October 15th. We will be holding our reorganization meeting sometime in late October and new membership will be announced along with officers for the 2022 term. Anyone who is interested please email me directly at this email address.
Oley/Brandywine Boosters Club President
