    Soccer is a popular sport in Bay Ridge. Some people just love the sport. Some working parents love it because there is just one game/practice a week and no practices during the week for the younger aged teams!

    Some church group related teams take parishioners first and your may refund your money if the league is full of parish kids, which is understandable as it is set up for for parishioners and run by many volunteers in the parish.

    Registration for many of these programs started in the Spring so the coaches could order shirts and uniforms and have them ready for the Fall season.
