Programs

Babylon Soccer Club (BSC) offers two soccer programs for the youth of the community: Intramural and Travel

The Intramural Program includes U5 (which is strictly instructional based), U6, and U7/U8 Divisions that contain teams that compete with each other in Babylon.

The Travel Program participates in the Long Island Junior Soccer League (LIJSL) and it consists of Divisions from U9 and older that compete with teams from other towns. Some U8 teams play up to U9 as well. This is at the discretion of the coach.
