                                 Fall Season 2011 Registration

The South Burlington Strikers Soccer Club (SBSSC) is organizing boys teams to play in the fall of 2011.
Teams participate in the fall league organized by the Vermont Soccer Association.

The Strikers fall program is intended for the more serious soccer player looking to develop their skills in
this competitive league. An increased commitment from both players and parents is required and
prior experience playing in a competitive league is preferred. For first year players, or those
looking for a less competitive environment, the SB Recreation Department offers an excellent fall
soccer program.

       South Burlington Strikers Soccer Club is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to
       strengthening our community soccer program. We strive to provide an atmosphere of good
       sportsmanship where players can learn, enjoy, and compete in the game of soccer.

The number of teams in each age group may be limited, depending on key factors:
      (1) Availability of a coach.
      (2) Sufficient registration numbers in an age division to form a team or teams.

                                                                      Reg. Fee      Reg. Fee
