Technical Skills Clinics - 2nd Session

Our second session is schedule for Monday May 1st. 

 

Parents, 

Each season MYS offers a series of technical skills clinics aimed at giving our players some additional opportunities, outside of their normal team practices, to grow and learn.  These clinics focus on the technical aspects of the game dribbling/passing/core goalie skills.  These are open to all kids Grade 1 and up.   Kids should bring a ball and a drink and be dressed for practice, shin guards and appropriate foot gear.   All sessions are held at Ghiloni park and the schedule is:

 

Grade 1/2       5:30 - 6:30

Grade 3/4       6:30 - 7:30

Grade 5/6/7/8 7:30 - 8:30

 

Thanks

 

Henry Garcia

Spring Season Information

Hi Everyone,

As we prepare for the season to begin this weekend I wanted to bring a couple of items to your attention that will make the season run smoothly.

Everyone should show up early and be prepared to start games and practices on time.  Players can wear sneakers or soccer cleats, but no baseball/softball or football cleats.  Shin guards must be worn for practices and games.  There should be no jewelry other than medical alerts, no exceptions (earrings can be removed from newly pierced ears and replaced after the game/practice without any issues).  These rules are for the safety of all the players.

Everyone should read the Zero Tolerance Policy ( click here to view policy) and MYS Code of Conduct (included below). We are an organization that follows these policies and expects our volunteers and players to as well.  If you have you have any questions, please let me know because everyone will be held accountable for their actions and adherence to both policies.

Parents should cheer for their children but not try to coach them.   We have coaches to work with the players and often a parent giving advice to a player only confuses the player especially if their instructions go against what the coach has asked them to do.

Please remember youth soccer is about development, winning means absolutely nothing.

We are looking forward to a great season,

Adam Matthews
President
Marlboro Youth Soccer

 

Code of Conduct

  • Through submitting the membership application for my child, I also am a member of the Club, and am therefore subject to the Club's rules, and to the rules and regulations of the organizations to which the Club belongs.
  • My child plays soccer for his or her benefit, not mine.
  • I will not give instructions to players -- that is the coach's role.
  • I will never question the referee's judgment, integrity or honesty.
  • I will support all efforts to eliminate verbal and physical abuse from the game of soccer.
  • At all times I will show respect for the players, the coaching team, referees, and opposing players and coaches.
  • I will teach my child that doing one's best is as important as winning, so that my child will never feel defeated by the outcome of a game.
  • I will make my child feel like a winner by offering praise for competing fairly and doing their best.
  • I will encourage my child to play by the rules and to resolve conflicts without resorting to hostility or violence.
  • Children learn by example. I will applaud good plays by both my child's team and their opponents.
  • I will make sure that my child arrives for practices and games at the time designated by the coach.
  • I realize that the team can be penalized for my behavior. I will obey a request by a referee or from the team's coach to leave the vicinity of the field.

MYS Concussion Policy

Massachusetts Youth Soccer Association (MYSA) has accepted US Youth Soccer’s Recognize to Recover concussion program.  For complete details click here to get the policy document.

In short, if a Referee or Coach feels the player has suffered a concussion the player will be removed from the game or practice. Our Coaches have taken a concussion course and will do their best to evaluate the player. I have asked them to be conservative, so if they think the player might have a concussion they are not to allow the player to continue and are to inform the player’s guardians and the Marlboro Youth Soccer Division Director.  The player will not be allowed to play again (games or practices) until the coach is given a written release that the player has passed the Return to Play Protocol from a Health Care Provider (HCP). The release needs to allow for unrestricted play. If it states the player can participate in non-contact activities they will NOT be allowed to participate in games or practices.

We are taking a conservative and strict stance on this because it is in the best interest of the kids. We understand our coaches are not doctors and may think there is an issue when there isn’t but it is better to be safe than sorry.

MYS Spring Season Update

Hi Everyone,

Over the next couple of weeks you will be getting a number of emails from Coaches and Board members please make sure you read them all. There will be some very important information being distributed that will ensure everyone is kept up to date and aware of all the events, policies and procedures for this season. Email is our primary means of comminucation and our website would be an alternate source of information.

The rosters have been distributed to the coaches and they will be contacting you, if they haven't already. If you are not placed on a team you will be contacted by the Division Director. If you haven’t been contacted by either of them by Wednesday please reach out to the Division Director for your child’s group.

I'm sure you’re not surprised but currently the fields are closed. The City will contact us when the fields become available and we will update the website and let the coaches know. Keep in mind that fields are opened and closed on an individual basis. So some may open and have practices or games and others may remain closed. At this point I am not very hopeful that we will have all of the fields for Saturday the 8th or possibly even for the 15th but please plan on playing until your coach tells you the game is cancelled.  Some games may get moved to other fields, times or both and some travel teams may be able to play in other towns.  Your coach will keep you updated.

Looking forward to a great season,
Adam
