Registration For Our Lady of Sorrows Rec Soccer For The Spring 2023 Season Is Open Thru March 1
Our Lady of Sorrows has partnered with BUSA
BUSA is proud to be the managing partner for OLS Soccer, and we are excited to offer our services and programs to the OLS students. Our goal is to grow the club and add many new training and developmental opportunities for the players. In addition, we want to provide a “total soccer” atmosphere to OLS Soccer which is the recreational component, and the competitive component combined. This “total soccer” program is not available to many cities in this area.
Please take time to review the information below, and be sure to register your child for the Spring. We are looking forward to a fun and enjoyable season.
