Special note for players with ECNL or OSA tryouts:
1) Every player should have registered online BEFORE tryouts using your proper name on birth certificate.
2) Then, you should have paid by check at tryouts for Registration.
3) After tryouts, you will receive an email from "Blue Sombrero" asking you to "Accept the Spot" on your team. Please click Accept, but choose "pay by check" as you have already paid at tryouts. You will still see a balance and when the club updates the payment status you will receive another email confirmation. If you did not, pay by check at tryouts, you have the option of paying via credit card at that time.
4) If you cannot find the email you were sent, you can simply log back in to your account using the Registration Link to the left. Go to your account, under Participants, click on the Tryout Acceptance link. That’s it!
Check Tryout Status: Managers can view their rosters for who has completed their Tryout Acceptance by going BlueSombrero main registration page and log in to your account.
Then at the top click Team Central > Team Directory > then select your program > then your age division > then your team you should be able to view the players that have completed.
