After School Sports @ BIS

Program Goals
The Burlingame Parks and Recreation Department strives to offer a wide variety of quality afterschool sports to as many kids as possible in the Burlingame community.  We accomplish this through the hard work of parents, teachers, coaches, administrators, and the recreation staff. We do not make any cuts in our program and encourage all kids to participate.

Registration Process
Participants can register for all sports through the Burlingame Recreation Department through our website, over the phone, or in person at the Recreation Center. Registration for Fall and Winter Sports begin in July.  Spring registration begins in early December.   We make every effort to allow all students the opportunity to participate in the afterschool sports program. Several sports are limited to the number of people allowed to register due to league limitations, such as golf or badminton, while other sports such as Cross Country or Track and Field can accommodate a large number of participants.

Waiting List
The amount of teams are determined by the number of coaches, as well as facility limitations.   If the sport is full, it is encouraged to sign up for the waiting list, and as spots or more coaches become available, the waiting list will be notified. 

Good sportsmanship is a very important part of the after school sports program. Players are expected to act with dignity and respect towards teammates, opponents & facilities. Parents are there to be supportive of players & coaches. Any unsportsmanlike conduct by players or parents may because to ban them from future events.

The Burlingame Parks and Recreation Department offers scholarship opportunities to participants who require assistance to pay the registration fee. We usually are able to offer a 50% or 25% discount on the program. In certain cases the PTA of a school will step forward and pay the registration fee for the participant.  If you have questions about scholarship email Joleen Helley
