Whether you are getting ready to register your player for the 2018 recreational season  for 2018-19, it's important you set your password in our new system if you have not already done so.

Ballistic United Soccer Club has moved to a new system for registration and communication? We said bye, bye, bye to Korrio and got in sync with League Apps!  
All member data was uploaded into League Apps, but all members need to SET A NEW PASSWORD before registering for their first program in the new system. Please DO NOT create a new account--this will result in duplicates! Thank you!

Important Membership Opportunities
In the summer and fall of 2017, over 1600 families received the BUSC Membership Book as a guide to preferred stores, restaurants, service providers, and vendors throughout the local community. The BUSC Membership Book will be printed annually and can serve as a reference for our families throughout the year. Our families can also use the Club Member Card from the book to find discounts especially for BUSC members!

A Message from Executive Director, Kevin Crow

... In last month's newsletter I mentioned we would be communicating new and exciting changes to our U5-U10 recreational age groups. Each year our staff and board of directors take on the challenge of improving programs and in the end our members experience. The club sends out an annual survey and asks membership about their prior years experience and to provide suggestions on ways to improve upon the programs. Below is a list of suggested improvements:
  1. Earlier start to season/earlier end to season
  2. Consistent number of training sessions
  3. Consistent days and times for training
  4. Consistent day and time for games
  5. Elimination of U9/10 Parent volunteer program
Through this exchange of ideas and recommendations our club is excited to announce some changes to the programs listed below.. .read more
