Salt Lake Old Boys Soccer Club: Welcome

Salt Lake Old Boys: Don't let the name fool you!

Establish in 1994 the Salt Lake Old Boys was the idea of two brothers, DJ and Pablo Martinez. The goal was to find a way to get a little exercise and have fun doing it. Since then the team has grown to be quite the successful club. The Salt Lake Old Boys are affiliated with the Utah Soccer Association, and have earned and received various awards and cup's over the years. Our success has spawned some players who have created successful teams of their own, all of which we enjoy competing against. Our humble idea of staying in shape, has become a labor of love and now includes 3 outdoor teams and 1 indoor team all part of the Salt Lake Old Boys Soccer Club. Our driving force remains the same: Play hard and have fun.

2016 Season is Hear

Here is some info from the League office concerning new registration for this year. 

 From: Bill Bosgraaf, Executive Director

It is that time again to start organizing the teams for the 2016 Season. During the winter months we have been busy wherein we reviewed the 2015 season and some of the issues that came forth along with recognizing that annually it is becoming more difficult to maintain field space with the various cities where we rent the field space. To start off with, only Club and Team registration is now open. Player rigistration soon to come

 To register your players:

1. As we did last year, a player can choose a payment plan between paying all up front to making installment payment between two to five months. Installment Payment Plan will be as follow: February-up to five months; March-up to four months; April-up to three months; May-two months; June through October-one payment only.

2. Players need to be aware that if they are on a payment plan and there are changes to their credit/debit card, they need to contact us immediately. Most of these issues include: debit cards not having enough funds for a payment, credit card expiration, credit card number change, stolen or lost cards.

3. If you have not been registered with the Utah Soccer Association in the last two years then you will need to register yourself into the system (do not register to a club/team in this part) prior to registering your Club or Team.

4. A player who will be registering with two teams within a Club must inquire with the Club/Team Manager in regard to which team will be their primary and secondary team and register for primary team first when registering.

5. A player who registers for multiple teams at different times must keep in mind that separate account transactions will be in place and they are not combined.

6. As a player, if you are already registered within the system from either 2014/15, you need to update your existing personal profile for the 2016 season. It is important that the player has an up-to-date (no sunglasses, hats. Caps, etc.) passport style photo loaded in and that all of the personal information is complete and up to date. The player will be declared ineligible until it is fixed. We need to report all registrations to the national office and they need proper information.

7. Anytime a player changes an email address, they need to change it in their personal profile. This needs to be current as they will not be able to access their own account if the old one is canceled.

8. We strongly suggest that you require your players to turn on the texting option. We do not use this often however we have found this to be a great tool to notify the team’s players when there are late notifications regarding a game, such as weather related cancellations. Along with that two days prior to their next game they also receive a notification about that game.

2014 Online Registration Instructions

I finally got access to the website and will be registering our D4, D2 and possible O-35 teams so that the rest of you can start registering.

The break down for fees is as fallows:

D2 = $250 D4 and O-35 = $243 If you register for either one of our D2 or D4 teams and then register for our O-35 as a second team that second registration will only be a total $150. These are total fees including, registration, ref, and team Yes, the higher divisions pay more in referee fees. This is an Utah Soccer Association imposed fee, not a club imposed fee. The only fee we have control over as a club is the club fee. As I mentioned earlier this helps pay for our website and supplies and because the D2 team is required to pay more in ref fees I am charging them less in team fees to try and make it a bit more even. Not completely even but a bit more even.

Please remember the earlier you register the easier it will be to pay. If registered by end of Feb (this friday 2/28) you can break the cost down into 5 payments, in March = 4 payments, April = 3 payments, May = 2 payments, June = in full. Now this new system is kind of confusing especially after getting used to the old system.

1) go to Utahsoccer.org and click on the Red Button on the bottom that reads "Register to a team" this will give you access to written instruction on how to register, (they were still a bit confusing for me so I'm listing bellow some steps that might help)

2)you will then need to return the the leagues website utahsoccer.org and click on the Yellow button that reads "Rigester/Login" and this will take you to the new system named League Man

3) You will need to log in using the email you used in the previous system (if you don't remember that email, I do have access the old system and can look it up for you, otherwise create a new account)

4) the fist time you attempt to log in it will ask for a password, you may use anything you want like "firsttime" because after logging in the first time it will require a password reset. At least for me it sent a new temporary password to the email I just used to login with. I then had to return to the the login page, enter the email again and the new temporary password.

5)Once logged in with the new/temp password put your cursor on the "profile" tab which is the second from the right then cursor over "account" and then CLICK on "edit" here you must change your password to something you will always remember. HINT- for "current" password use the new/temporary password you were assigned in the email. On this page you will also need to enter all you info as instructed in the downloaded instructions, such as US citizenship, country of birth, and so on. Then of course, click on update at bottom left.

6)Go back to "profile" tab then "account" and then click on "edit my picture". If you were smart and saved your pictures from last years registration, this will be quick, otherwise you'll have to start from scratch and take a head and shoulder shot of yourself and save it to your computer. PLEASE remember, NO hats, and NO sunglasses.

7)Registration to a team and paying for your registration - These instructions are pretty clear on the previously downloaded instruction from the league website. If you have question please contact me and I may be able to help.

8)Players I'm expecting to register as part of D2 are those players I've already spoken to. With these players I currently have enough players to field team of 11 players but I still would like at least 3,4 or even more for subs.

So I'm asking everyone to please keep asking and looking around for some quality players. I'm also looking for more O-35 / O-40 and D4 players. so please talk to everyone you know. I will be out of town starting Friday returning on Monday so if you need my help I will be available tonight through Thursday evening I hope this all helps. I will be posting it to our website so you can access it there and share it with your friends.
