General FAQs

Answers to General Questions

Can I cancel and get a refund?

Refunds are sometimes possible – BSSC policies vary depending on the type of activity and timing of your cancellation. The closer you are to the start date, the less likely we will be able to refund you. There is no refund for unused services. Please check specific policies for your activity.

How early do I need to sign up for activities?

It depends on the activity – Some sell out within days of being posted, while others may be available on the day of the event. Sports leagues have limited space for teams and individuals, and are dependent on getting the appropriate number of male/female players. Register as soon as you know you can play so you don’t miss out! Day ski trips can fill up when it snows, but if it’s several days prior, we may add another bus – it’s always worth a call. For weekend overnight trips, we need 3-4 weeks lead-in to determine whether to pay for rooms or release them. Any vacations, especially with airline tickets, have registration deadlines months in advance. Check the website and book your travel by the dates indicated.

How old do I have to be?

Lots of people join BSSC after college. You must be 21+ for most activities, but age 18+ may play in our sports leagues, and minors are permitted on our day ski & snowboard trips. Participants are mostly in their mid-twenties to forties, but many of our “veteran” players are still at it! It’s more about doing what you enjoy and meeting like-minded people.

Sports FAQs

Answers to common questions

What are the sign-up deadlines for sports?

All BSSC leagues and clinics are first-come/first-serve. Teams in existing leagues are given until one month prior to commit to returning to play the next session before we accept new teams. Some leagues sell out 5-6 weeks in advance, so we recommend that teams and individuals register as soon as you know you can play. On the other hand, there might be space as late as the league’s start date, so give us a call.

Can I play a particular position on the team?

Probably, but we don’t actually coordinate how things work within your team. Once you meet everyone at the first game, you can work it out amongst yourselves. Indie teams are friendly and welcoming.  Please let the BSSC sports manager know if you’d like to help out by being team captain, or can play goalie or pitcher!

Do I need to bring my own equipment for sports leagues?

BSSC provides game balls and basics to play each sport (bases, hoops, nets, cones, and more). Softball bats, sticks (hockey and lacrosse), appropriate protective gear (shin guards, mouth guards, eye goggles, and goalie gear) and basic first aid supplies (bandaids, sports tape, ice packs) are each player’s responsibility. Check your sport rules for more specifics.

How can I play with friends? (What if I have a partial team?)

Register as an individual player and put the name of your friend(s) in the “teammate request” field. Choose one main person from your group and have everyone put that name in “teammate request”. As long as everyone registers at the same time, and we have space, we will honor your request. If you have a partial team, please contact the sports manager in case you can combine with another partial team.

How will I know my teammates, game location and schedule?

If you are part of a full team, the captain who registered the team will receive all the league info to forward to his/her teammates. If you signed up as an individual, you’ll be emailed the time and place of your first game about a week prior to the start date. When you arrive at the game, check in with the BSSC representative, and they will give you a team shirt and point the way to your teammates. After that, the schedule & standings will be posted on the specific page for your sport on BSSC.com and updated periodically.  You can also always find your personal schedule on your dashboard page once it’s posted.

I am not a great athlete – Can I still play?

Yes, all skill levels are welcome! If you are new to a sport (or rusty), we recommend you have some basic knowledge of the sport, unless it’s designated for beginners or includes instruction. When you register, we ask you to rate yourself on a scale from 1 to 5 (1= beginner). This helps us keep the teams fairly equal and competitive. Some leagues have multiple divisions where the highest divisions consist of seasoned BSSC teams. We usually place teams of individuals or “indie teams” into lower divisions to give you a chance to play the game effectively as a team.

I played in school – Will I find BSSC leagues competitive?

BSSC offers all levels of competition. For most sports, multiple levels are available within the same league. Advanced to low intermediate divisions are often specified for popular leagues like Soccer, Softball, Football, and Volleyball. Speak with the BSSC program manager about your sport for help finding the best match for your skills and experience.

What if I don’t have a team?

BSSC specializes in putting individuals together for teams. We will place you on a team of players who have all signed up individually or find you an existing team. Be sure to complete registration with payment. If we place you on an existing team, your fees will be refunded and you’ll pay the captain directly.

What if the weather is bad – When will you cancel my game?

You should always be ready to play! Cancellations depend upon the playability of a field, the risk of lightning, and/or an edict of the permitting authority – not whether it is raining or snowing. We use a lot of turf or synthetic grass fields, so games are rarely cancelled. In general, Softball & Kickball games are not cancelled until fields become “unplayable”. In winter, snow may dictate cancellations due to school closings, un-plowed parking lots, or if overall conditions become problematic.

Because conditions & weather can change quickly in New England, we make updates as necessary (24/7). We suggest you check before heading out to your league. Cancellations are posted in the following manner:
Website: bssc.com
Phone: 617.789.4070, ext. 700

What kind of cleats can I wear?

Because we play on all artificial turf fields, we do not allow the use of metal spikes (aka “soft ground” cleats).  All “firm ground,” turf cleats, indoor soccer shoes and running shoes are acceptable and appropriate options.

Travel FAQs

Answers to common questions

Can I cancel an overnight weekend or vacation and get a refund?

Refunds are possible – policies vary depending on the type of trip and timing of your cancellation. The closer you are to departure, the less likely we will be able to refund you 100%. Cancellations are subject to the regulations and cancellation fees set by BSSC, tour operators, and agents carrying out services. There is no refund for unused services. Please check specific policies for your trip. We also recommend that vacationers purchase travel insurance and can provide more info upon request.

Are there any group discounts for overnight weekend and vacation trips?

Yes, we make it easy for you and a group of your friends to go with us and save. For more info, please contact randy@bssc.com

Can I get my own air and book land only with BSSC?

Yes, most BSSC ski vacations may be booked without air from Boston. Before you book any portion of your vacation, call us for a quote and to discuss your possible flight schedule. If our trip includes transfers, you will need to coordinate times to meet the BSSC group or be responsible for getting yourself to the resort.

Do I need a passport for all trips?

Official travel requirements may change at any time. Therefore, please check for yourself when it comes time for you to travel.

Currently, for travel anywhere outside of the United States, including Canada & Mexico, you will need a passport that is valid at least 6 months after your scheduled return. When traveling within the United States, a valid driver’s license with your photo on it is acceptable for US citizens. Non-US citizens must check on their own for travel requirements.

For overnight weekend and vacation trips, how far in advance do I need to register?

For BSSC overnight travel, booking 3-4 weeks in advance is recommended. For week-long vacations, book early to guarantee your spot and get the best rates. Ski vacations are usually announced in the summer at a $100-$150 savings. Check each trip for specific deadlines and policies. The closer the travel date, the more complex and costly it might be to procure accommodations and/or airfare.

What are the rooming arrangements for overnight weekend and vacation trips?

BSSC traditionally offers “minimum occupancy”. Whether in a hotel or condo, it is typically two per room, and you each get your own bed. Nobody has to sleep on a pullout or rollaway. Select trips may also offer lower prices for triple and quad occupancy.

Single rooms may be available upon request for an additional fee. If traveling solo, we will match you with a roommate of the same gender and approximate age, or you may request to room with a friend or significant other of any gender.

Can I get my own ski pass or bring a non-skier guest?

Yes, most BSSC trip may be booked without including a lift ticket. Call us for a quote or for more information on optional activities at the resort.

Can I get rentals or lessons with my day ski trip?

Yes. For rentals, you pre-pay on-line so you’ll be all set when you get to the mountain. If you forget to pre-purchase, let the trip leader know that morning and they will make sure you get a voucher to receive our group rate (varies by mountain).

For lessons, we recommend you contact the mountain directly to select the appropriate package. If you choose a package that includes a lift ticket, simply register with BSSC as a “bus-only.”

Do I need a passport for all trips?

Official travel requirements may change at any time. Therefore, please check for yourself when it comes time for you to travel.

Currently, for travel anywhere outside of the United States, including Canada & Mexico, you will need a passport that is valid at least 6 months after your scheduled return.

The closer the travel date, the more complex and costly it might be to procure accommodations and/or airfare.

How far in advance do I need to register for a day ski trip?

Most people sign up 3 days to a week prior, but you can check the website or call us for last minute space. You should only register once you are sure you can go, since all day trips are non-refundable and not transferrable to another date.

What are the rooming arrangements for overnight weekend and vacation trips?

BSSC traditionally offers “minimum occupancy”. Whether in a hotel or condo, it is typically two per room, and you each get your own bed. Nobody has to sleep on a pullout or rollaway. Select trips may also offer lower prices for triple and quad occupancy.

Single rooms may be available upon request for an additional fee. If traveling solo, we will match you with a roommate of the same gender and approximate age, or you may request to room with a friend or significant other of any gender.

What if I am traveling by myself?

No problem! Many of our travelers go solo…that’s why our trips work so well. We match roommates so you do not have to pay a single room supplement and have an instant friend, or single rooms may be available on request for an additional fee.

BSSC trips are well-organized and staffed by friendly leaders who can arrange group meals and get-togethers. If you want to meet new people and make new friends, group socializing is there for you, but if you prefer to do your own thing, that is totally fine too.

Events FAQs

Answers to common questions

Can I cancel an event and get a refund?

Policies vary, but most one-day or ticketed events are non-refundable. If you can’t make it, you can send a friend in your place. There is no refund for unused services. Please check your confirmation for more specifics.

For events, can I just show up and pay there?

We recommend that you register in advance. Many events sell out, some require a guest list at the door or have reserved seating (like Red Sox or Patriots games) – AND prices are often lower the earlier you register! Some larger events allow for cash at the door, check the event on BSSC.com for specific details.

What are the demographics at BSSC events?

Each activity draws a slightly different crowd, but the majority of our party people are mid-twenties to forties. All events are inclusive with a pretty even mix of gender. At BSSC it’s all about meeting like-minded people and having fun!

What if I don’t know anyone at an event?

That’s why we’re here! Boston is a city in constant flux and BSSC makes it easy to get out, explore, and meet new people. Our events are well-organized and staffed by friendly people and attended by other young professionals just like you.

Do I need to be an AVP member?

No, BSSC decided not to partner with the AVP series this year to keep our prices lower.  You can still expect the great prizes and tournament quality that you’ve experienced in the past.  No need to sign up on any alternate sites.

Sports – About League Schedules

We build each session’s schedule by hand with careful consideration to producing a balanced and fair schedule for every team in the league. We do our best to accommodate special requests, but cannot guarantee that they will be met. The schedules for the session are communicated to teams as follows:

First Game Times. First game times are usually emailed and posted online 5-7 days prior to the start of the season.

Full schedule. The full season schedule is published 1-2 business days after the first games of the season.

Playoffs. Playoff schedules are usually posted a few days after the regular season has ended. Note that the eligibility for playoffs varies by league and session. Sometimes, all teams are eligible for playoff games, but in some cases they are not. Once the final standings have been updated, a schedule for playoff matches will be published.

While we do our best to adhere to published schedules, please be aware that schedules are subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances at fields and facilities. Cancelled games may cause the season to extend beyond the initially posted end date and/or change playoff dates. We strongly recommend that you build flexibility into your rosters to accommodate possible changes.

General – Weather Cancellation Policy

There are 3 ways to see if activities are canceled. We will always make an effort to give you a few hours notice, but that may not always be possible, so it is the participant’s responsibility to check these 3 sources.

BSSC Weather Cancellation Line: 617-789-4070 ext 700
Twitter @bssc
BSSC.com.

For outdoor activities, cancellations depend upon the playability of a field, not whether it is raining. Decisions are usually made after 4pm on weekdays and 2-3 hours in advance on weekends. Because conditions & weather can change, updates are made as necessary, and we suggest you check before heading out to your activity. Games scheduled for synthetic grass fields are usually never cancelled unless there is thunder & lightning. In case of lightning near a field, games will be stopped immediately and then resumed when safe…this may cause a delay in the schedule or require some or all games to be cancelled depending on the duration of lightning. Activities may also be cancelled per the directive of the field/venue owner if they feel damage may be done to the field by playing on it.

During the winter months, occasionally activities may be cancelled due to snow. Some sports leagues use school facilities which may be closed if school was cancelled. However, some schools allow us to play as long as the parking lot is cleared. Other facilities are always open, and we will only cancel if overall conditions are too problematic. We will usually not cancel in advance based on a forecast of snow, but wait until actual accumulation. Similarly, if it is snowing in the morning or early afternoon, but is due to stop, we will wait until 4 or 5pm to see if we can play.

General – Code of Conduct and Sportsmanship

BSSC is committed to maintaining a pleasant, comfortable, and safe recreational environment and therefore expects its participants to adhere to a code of conduct with respect to other participants, spectators, BSSC staff, game officials, agents carrying out services, and others. These requirements include, but are not limited to:
• Abiding by the rules and policies of all games, activities, venues and transportation providers.
• Maintaining high standards of sportsmanship, honesty and courtesy, including hand-shaking, or similar, with opponents after games.
• Respecting the instruction and decisions of game officials, activity coordinators and third party agents and interacting politely with them at all times.

BSSC also stands united behind the principles of respect, inclusion, and acceptance. We welcome and are committed to providing a fun and safe environment for all persons regardless of race, ethnicity, color, gender, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, religious belief, age, disability, veteran status or national origin. Our rules, despite gender requirements or game-play, are inclusive of all sexualities and gender identities and expressions, and we encourage you to identify in our leagues and activities as you prefer. If you should have any concerns or needs, please email your program manager (listed on each activity web page) for assistance.

The following are examples of unacceptable conduct in BSSC activities:
• Illegal activity
• Threatening, intimidating, harassing or violent verbal or physical behaviors
• Excessive, inappropriate, rude, argumentative or disruptive actions and/or profanity
• Excessive drinking or disorderly conduct
• Disregard of the rules of the facility or transportation provider (i.e. cleanliness, respectful communications with representatives and other patrons)
• Any other behavior, which in the sole discretion of BSSC, the game official, tour escort and/or agents carrying out services, is deemed to be in any way inappropriate

Any person, group or team considered to be in violation of this code of conduct can be immediately removed from the game or activity, requiring the participant(s) to leave the playing area and/or event venue in a timely fashion, and they will be subject to any or all of the following disciplinary actions, in each instance without refund of any kind:
• Verbal warning
