Bruce Samlan Soccer League

Bruce Samlan Soccer League Recreational youth soccer league serving the North Central Illinois and South Central Wisconsin Staeline Area.
(7)

The Bruce Samlan Soccer league (BSSL) is a recreational soccer league under the Hononegah Youth Soccer Association (HYSA). Bruce Samlan was one of the first Hononegah Lions coaches and helped form the recreational league. BSSL serves children ages 4-18 and focuses on the introduction of soccer for beginning players and continuing development of soccer techniques for experienced players. BSSL has many divisions and focuses on promoting your child's passion for the game of soccer in a competitive but respectful format. Player development is more important than winning and many of the players have a lot of fun playing the sport without the added pressure to "win at all costs". It is truly about the kids...

Dear Bruce Samlan Families,

First and foremost, the BSSL Board would like to thank you for all your patience and support during these unprecedented times. We appreciate all your faith in our recreational league. The decision on playing a contact sport this 2020 year has not been without its challenges. Our number one priority is the safety of our players and families. We have continued to do our due diligence with contacting/following the guidelines set forth by the CDC, IDPH, IYSA, Roscoe Township, and the State of Illinois’ Restore Illinois Order.

It is with a heavy heart to inform you, that the Board has decided to not move forward with a Fall 2020 soccer season. With all the uncertainty with this pandemic, amount of restrictions/guidelines for each player and family, having Cross Park currently at an “enter at your own risk” ordinance, and having open vacancies on the Board that is why our decision is to not hold a fall soccer season. We are working with Sport Engine to refund all player registrations. Refunds should be expected between 3-4 weeks. Any player(s) that signed up for the recreational soccer season through Tiger’s Elite - Tony Pipitone, he will be contacting you about your refund.

We will have a few fields set up at Cross park for families to enjoy some soccer this summer and fall. Please use the state guidelines and Township “enter at your own risk” ordinance for use. We wish for you and your family to stay safe and healthy. We remain optimistic and hopeful to return to play in 2021.

We are always looking for volunteers to join the Board. We are in need of Board Members and Member at Large. Please contact Kelly Weber at [email protected] for more information. Our current openings include:

Director of Records (Secretary)

Director of Marketing/Sponsorships

Director of Volunteers/DIBS

Member at Large

Take Care and Best Wishes,


BSSL Board of Directors

Soccer season update!!!

Good Morning BSSL Families,
We wanted to send you an update and proposed plan for the "summer"/fall soccer season. We have been in contact with IYSA, Roscoe Township, IDPH, CDC and following the Governor's Phase plans. The Roscoe Township has decided to open Cross and Kelley Meyer Parks...see their important notice below
IMPORTANT NOTICE Effective May 29, 2020, the State of Illinois will move into Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois plan. As a result of this, we will be opening our parks for your use and enjoyment. In light of the current guidance issued by the State of Illinois and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, you are entering at your own risk. Please continue to practice social distancing while enjoying our parks and facilities within the park that may be open to public access. For questions and additional information regarding Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan, please visit: https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/restore-illinoisphase-3/. Thank you.”
BSSL proposed "summer/fall season" (This is all dependent upon the State moving forward with the Restore Illinois Phase plan).
Here is what the proposed season would look like-
Registration will close on Wednesday June 24th, we will conduct a Parent Meeting (virtually) on Saturday, July 25th. Teams will be allowed to practice beginning July 27th.
Pending we have moved into Phase 4, games will begin August. 8th - Oct. 17th (No games on Sept. 5th for Labor day weekend) and our rain date of Oct. 24th.
With the current unknowns, we are implementing several safety measures/guidelines for every one that will be attending any practices and/or games.
Once, registration is closed we will be sending out a list of safety measures and guidelines, please stay tuned.
Thank you,
Kelly and the BSSL Board

Dear Bruce Samlan Families,

Good Afternoon!

We hope you and your loved ones are safe during this unprecedented time. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread, we are continually monitoring the CDC and WHO for the most up to date information and planning our spring season accordingly.

As of today, the Illinois Youth Soccer Association has suspended all soccer sanctioned activities until at least April 15, 2020. However, at this time, we are still planning on our Season to begin May 2nd.

As you all know, every day brings new information concerning the virus and more precautions we should do and must follow. If anything changes, we will let you know as soon as we know anything.

The board of directors wishes you all well and we are looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Regards,
Jay Gilbert
Bruce Samlan Soccer League and Hononegah Youth Soccer Association President
