2nd Grade

Welcome to Second Grade Soccer!

Second Grade Mites Soccer players are encouraged to continue building their skills without the pressure of score keeping.  We don’t keep track of goals and there are no goal keepers. Basic soccer skills are still the focus at second grade including dribbling with changes of direction and trying to control the ball to dribble away from pressure and beat an opponent. Passing and shooting techniques are also developed. 
The activities used have been developed by our Coach Mentoring group PROformance Soccer along with the WYS Director of Coaching.  We are focused on building soccer skills, instilling good sportsmanship, and having fun. 

Important Dates:

Fall Season: The fall season runs from September 9, 2017 until November 11, 2017. 
On Westwood Day, Saturday 9/23/2017, instead of regular games on the Sheehan, our Coach Mentoring group PROformance Soccer will run 60 minute soccer skills clinics at the Xaverian High School field: 800 Clapboardtree St, Westwood, MA 02090. Coaches are encouraged to attend and help out.
  • Clinics times are different to allow kids to participate in WW Day activities in the morning:
    • 2nd Grade Girls: 1:45 - 2:45 pm
    • 2nd Grade Boys: 4:15 - 5:15 pm

Spring Season: The spring season starts mid April until mid June. Games will be scheduled for the Memorial Day weekend.

    • On the Saturday of the Little League parade, instead of regular games, our Coach Mentoring group PROformance Soccer will run soccer skills clinics! Clinics will be held at the Sheehan. Just show up and play.

Re-registration for the spring season is NOT required as the 2nd Grade soccer program is a full-year program. Players usually remain on the same team for the fall and spring. 

2nd Grade soccer will be played at the SHEEHAN fields (510 Pond Street) on Saturdays. See Parking Note.     

  • Girls play from 11:30 am to 12:45 pm
  • Boys play from 2:30 pm to 3:45 pm

Each Saturday session combines a soccer skills/drills period followed by a 4v4 scrimmage game.

No make-up games will be played. If a game is canceled due to weather it will be posted here: Weekend Field Status by 7:30 am.

Parking:

Parking for the Sheehan field is limited to certain areas on Pond Street, Oak Street, and surrounding neighborhood streets.  Cars are not allowed to park on both sides of Pond Plain Road or Greenacre Road for any reason.  Please try to carpool or walk if possible.

Reminders:

  • Grade 2 Mites Soccer is not a drop-off activity. A responsible adult must stay with the player for the duration of the practice/game.
  • Colored team t-shirts are provided. Same Shirts and Teams will be used for the Spring Season - No re-registration required.
  • Shin guards and soccer socks that cover the shin guards are required.
