Fall Soccer Registration 2021 - CLOSED

There have been many changes to the age groupings for Soccer. The change was required to follow the guidelines that have been established by US Soccer. Instead of the players age being determined by a rolling calendar year it is now determined by YEAR of birth. This change has created new opportunities for some players in level of play groupings that are now available and also changes in the format of play.

Registration is available for ANY one that has a birth date between January 1, 2007 through and including December 31, 2016.

Birth Years                                          Level of Play                             Format of Play

2015 & 2016                                        Under 7 (U7)                                      8 v 8

2013 & 2014                                        Under 9 (U9)                                      7 v 7

2011 & 2012                                        Under 11 (U11)                                 9 v 9

2009 & 2010                                        Under 13 (U13)                                 11 v 11

2007 & 2008                                        Under 15 (U15)                                 11 v 11

The U7 grouping is the only age ban that will be co-ed. We will be playing against teams from St. Janes and Bethlehem Township Athletic Association.

Because of these changes we ask that you register quickly as we have a short window of opportunity to determine if we will have enough players to field teams at each level.

You will be able to purchase a uniform during the registration process, previously the younger groups did not need a uniform with a number, this year numbered uniforms are required from U9 on up. There is an option to just purchase shirt or shorts individually without purchasing an entire uniform kit (both shorts and shirt).



Many people have asked what the registration fee covers. Blue Mountain Youth Soccer League registration fees (both players and teams), referee fees, entire season of games, end of year activities, and most of the expenses associated with the Garcia Cup (tent, table, chair rentals and setup).

Registration for each athlete is $90.00, the uniform kit (shirt and shorts) will be $35.00. 


During the registration process you will be prompted to order a uniform kit if needed. All first year U9 players will need to order a uniform. Please keep in mind that you will be able to use this uniform season to season, judge accordingly when selecting the uniform size for your athlete to insure you will be able to get multiple seasons from this purchase.

The Protecting God’s Children™  Program for Adults was purchased to educate every priest, employee, and volunteer who works with children about the harms of child sexual abuse and what they can do to prevent it. The Safe Environment Coordinator organizes the training sessions as well as administers the web-based online system that tracks who has been trained. The system provides follow-up information and reinforcement to facilitators and to participants who have been trained. 

The Protecting God’s Children™ program is a three-hour video presentation. Any adult volunteer who comes into contact with children for more that 15 hours a year is required to attend this program. Workshops require PRE-registration. Past attendees are eligible to sign up for ongoing bulletins from Vitrus.

Track and Field Registration is NOT OPEN

2022 Track and Field at OLPH

It is almost time for Track and Field at OLPH!  This year, due to COVID-19, there will be some changes to how our program is run.  The changes were made to help ensure that all CDC guidelines are followed to do our best to keep everyone safe while we enjoy the great outdoors!  Here are the details:

  1. The track team will be open to children in grades K-8.
  2. Only the 5-8 graders will be competing against teams from other schools.
  3. We will offer a free “Running Clinic” on the OLPH property for our K-4 athletes.  This will allow the kids to hone their skills for fast starts, good running form, and fast finishes.
  4. For the 5-8 graders, there will be no throwing events at the meets this year and there will be no high jump event.  The athletes will be competing in the following events this year.
    1. 100 meters
    2. 400 meters
    3. 800 meters
    4. 1600 meters
    5. 4 x 100 relay
    6. 4 x 200 relay
    7. Long Jump
  5. Practices should begin around the 2nd week of March. 
    1. The K-4 kids will practice at OLPH on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:15 – 6:15 pm. 
    2. The 5-8 graders will practice at Notre Dame High School Track on Tuesdays from 5:15 – 6:45 pm and Thursdays from 6:30 – 8:00 pm. 
    3. Please note that the dates/times for practice are tentative. 
  6. The meets for the 5-8 graders have not been scheduled yet.  Based on past experience, the first meet is anticipated to be Saturday, April 10th.  We typically have 4 meets and then go into the Championship meets in May.  This year the Championship meets will not be held due to crowd restrictions regarding COVID-19.
  7. Spectators will not be allowed at the meets due to crowd restrictions.  However, we will still need volunteers to help run the meets.  Volunteers will have the opportunity to watch their children participate (hint, hint).
  8. As of now, all athletes and coaches will be required to wear masks at all times and have their temperature checked at the beginning of each practice.  Should the CDC guidelines change, we will as well.  The goal here is to run a compliant program which allows the children to get out in the fresh air.
  9. If you would like to participate in the 2021 track season, please use the Sports Engine site to register your athlete for either the 5-8 Track Division or K-4 Running Clinic.
