The 2021 season of BDSL soccer approaches! The biggest BDSL meetings of the year are right around the corner and here is all the prep, dates, and info you need about being ready to join the coming season of one of Region 1's best adult soccer experiences.



February Meeting 

This is the largest meeting of the BDSL year. All team application forms are due at the meeting. Because of this attendance for all teams is needed. We'll collect intial payments from teams along with the team application forms. We'll also go over the large amount of rule changes to the game in 2021. There will be a new team manager meeting for all new managers post general meeting to provide very important information on how to rule a BDSL team.  


2021 Team Application

NEW TEAMS ONLY: In addition to your application we ask you provided us a provisional roster, proper logo, and any materials that could support your entrance and divisional placement to the league in 2020 (indoor results, team structure, player accolades, twitter account ect...). We are looking for teams that will continue to maintain the status and engagement that our current teams set the bar with. Any open spots will go to the clubs we believe will do that best first and foremost.

Team Deposit: $125

March Meeting

We'll continue to finalize plans for 2021 season. We'll go over any potential rule changes within the BDSL suggested at the February meeting. Hopefully by this time the field of teams is set and we'll being to work on schedules for the league. This meeting is good for any issues that you might have coming for the 2021 season to speak about. Teams must also declare for their prefered cup to particapate in by this meeting to prepare for the draw at the April meeting
