Q: We missed registration, can we still register?
After Walk-In registration is over the Soccer Board meets and begins assigning players to teams. Registration forms may still be turned in to the club for a limited time, but the Soccer Board determines when teams are filled and when forms can no longer be accepted. The sooner you turn in a form the better because once the Board determines teams are complete, forms will be returned.

Q: Why is a copy of my child's birth certificate required at registration?
When you register your child for the first time in Woodbury Bethlehem Youth Soccer a copy of his/her birth certificate is required to verify your child's name and birth date. It will be retained, so make certain that you provide only a COPY. Please feel free to blacken out any and all social security numbers and parents' birth dates. This information is not used nor required.
Q: We changed our mind about playing soccer, can I have the registration fee refunded?
As long as Woodbury Bethlehem Youth Soccer can place your child on a team the registration fee is not refunded. This policy guarantees the maximum number of children who wish to play are given an opportunity to register and be placed on teams.
Q: When will I hear from my child's coach about which team he/she has been placed on?
As soon as that information is available the Soccer Board notifies the coaches and asks that they, in turn, call their list of players. However, the club is a completely volunteer run organization, and occasionally that information will not get to you until a week prior to the start of the program. We ask for your patience and understanding.
