Fall 2020 Registration Closed

We are very excited to be playing soccer this fall! As we all know, the current prevalence of COVID-19 necessitates that we change our approach to the game and each other.

We are following the advice and directives of our local, state, and federal officials, as well as guidance from health and medical authorities to help provide a safer return to play, as soccer is considered a contact sport. The safety of our entire community is paramount.

Massachusetts’ Governor Charlie Baker issued a phased set of guidelines to reopen the Commonwealth, and as of today we are in Phase 3, Step 1 and classified as a Moderate Risk sport. This means that soccer games can be played, but there are modifications on and off of the playing field that need to be strictly followed.

To provide some information on what these requirements look like, here is a link to the Mass Youth Soccer Return to Play guidelines now in force. Please review the Parent and Player sections found on Pages 9 and 10, in the linked document: You will also be asked to click through to these guidelines and initial receipt during the waiver part of our registration process.

All players, coaches, referees, and spectators will be required to adhere to any revised published guidelines and protocols which will be made available closer to the start of the season. Each team is required to have an assistant coach who acts as a COVID-19 Safety Coordinator while on the field. 

Additionally, the session times and game/practice formats that we have used in the past were adjusted to accommodate all required social distancing parameters. We ask that you remain flexible and adapt!
