It is unknown how many teams which will take the field under the Bethesda South banner this fall. BSC as a whole contains upwards of 60 teams overall.
Bethesda SC says the new teams will compete in the National Capital Soccer League (NCSL) and Olney Bethesda Soccer League (OBSL). Tryouts are set for next month.
