Grading/Tryouts: There are no tryouts or grading for the Instructional& Developmental programs.

Seasons: These programs have a Spring and Fall season. The seasons typically run from April to mid-June in the Spring and September to early November in the Fall. As with any outdoor sport, the season may be extended slightly due to weather problems, if field space is available.

Playoffs/Tournaments: There is no pre or post season play for these programs.


Coaches: We are always looking for good coaches that want to work with children. All head and assistant coaches are required to pass a mandatory background check, attend a clinic that is hosted by our OBGC Soccer program and attend NYSCA training in order for them to qualify for the Club's liability coverage. Our coaches are the backbone to the Club's programs. Their attitude and approach are what makes the difference in a child's experience.

If you are interested in coaching please email Soccer@OBGC.com

Equipment: OBGC provides each child with a uniform consisting of a T- shirt. The only pieces of equipment that a child must bring are shin guards and #3 soccer ball.
