FAQs about Bergenfield United

How long is the season?
For U8 - U14 teams, teams participate in the Fall and Spring soccer seasons. Fall practices typically start in August with games commencing in September and ending in mid-November. Outdoor spring practices begin in March with games beginning soon afterwards and extending to early June.

Bergenfield United also assembles teams U16-U19 based on the number of players available for the Spring season.

What fields and locations are the soccer games played at?
For U8-U12, all home games are played at Bergenfield home town fields of Hickory, Vivyen and possibly Pony at the PAL Complex. For all U13 and above teams all home games are played at Roy W. Brown Middle School Field. All team away games are played at the opponents home field which can be close as 5 mins. away to up to 40 mins. away.

When are the games and practices scheduled?
In the fall, the boys games are on Saturdays and the girls on Sundays. In the spring, both groups play their games on Sundays. Rescheduled matches during either season may take place on a Friday evening or other day of the week. Coaches provide the families with as much notice as possible about rescheduled games.

Practices tend to be 2 nights a week during the season. Coaches may also offer optional practice sessions (generally once a week) during the off-season.

How can I see the full schedule for the season?

Please go to the Northern Counties Soccer Association website for full details on the season schedule, including field assignment.

What are the fees for the Fall/Spring season and what does it cover?

Bergenfield residents will pay $290 (does not include uniforms) and out of town players $340 (does not include uniforms) that pays for both fall and spring seasons. High school teams that only play in the Spring have a fee of $200 (plus the cost of uniforms) for the season. Please note there is a discount for families with 3 or more children playing. The fees cover the cost of referees, insurance, administrative fees and uniforms. Please note that uniforms are expected to last players for three seasons, so take that into consideration when selecting size. The fee does not cover the cost of tournaments, team parties or other accessories that the team may elect to purchase.

What are the fees for the Uniforms?
Starting with the Fall 2018 Season, Uniforms kits will be ordered online separately by parent or guardian. The uniform fee will now be separate and not part of regular registration fee. We are still finalizing our uniform supplier and anticipate that uniform costs will be between $90-$100 for a full kit of home, away and practice gear. Uniforms are expected to last for three seasons.

I don't see a team for my son/daughter's age group. Should I still have them tryout?

Yes! We are always looking to build additional teams. If we do not have enough players for any age group, your child might be asked to play with the next oldest group.

What is the Bergenfield United Training Program?
The Bergenfield United Training Program is open to all children ages 6 and 7 who are interested in learning about the fundamentals of soccer. Held once a week on Friday evenings from 6:00-7:15, the clinic program offers an introduction to soccer. Parents can sign up for the just the Fall or just the Spring semester program for $60 or for both Fall and Spring semester program for $100. Register here. The first session for the Fall will take place in early September.

Is Bergenfield United the same as Bergenfield PAL?
While we are affiliated with Bergenfield PAL, Bergenfield United SC is a separate program. PAL recreational soccer runs in the Fall and does not require travel time to other towns.
