MYS Clinic Updates

Parents, 

I just wanted to clarify a couple of points on the clinics.    There are 2 separate clinics being offered.  For our PK/K (U6) group these are indoor clinics being offered at Forekicks.  These sessions are still on, and will not be effected by weather.   For G1 and above (U7 and above) groups these are outdoor clinics at Ghiloni park.   These sessions are canceled for tonight as the fields are closed.

MYS Update

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to let you all know that after more than a combined 80 seasons of volunteering for MYS Don and Terry Peltak have decided to step down from the Board.  Words can not convey what they have meant to the organization and how much their contributions have helped develop so many children into young adults and not just soccer players.  They will truly be missed.

While it will be impossible to replace Don and Terry we do need to fill their positions on the Board as well as a few other openings:

  • KG/PS (Under 6) Division Director

  • Purchasing Agent (Equipment)

  • Sponsor Coordinator

  • Assistant Registrar

  • Assistant Development Director


It is critical that we get volunteers to fill these positions in order for the organization to continue providing all of the programs for the players and coaches.  We also have other less formal areas (helping with weekly field signs, distributing flyers to schools, put out and bring in corner flags, etc.) where we could use help. As you can see from the examples, these  tasks can be shared by different people.

Please contact me at with any questions regarding any and all volunteer opportunities within MYS.

Adam

G5/G6/G7/G8 6:30 - 7:15



We will be offering 4 Technical Skills Clinics and 1 Goalie Clinic this season. These sessions are free attend and are a great opportunity for the kids to get some additional time to perfect the technical aspects of the game.  These session will be led by coaches from out training partner Global Premier Soccer and they will be held at Ghiloni park.

Fall 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.

The website will be updated with the most current information but we currently have a number of events scheduled:

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.

New Age Groups

Hi Everyone,

We wanted to let you know about some changes to the age groups that will be used in the fall as well as the changes to the number of players on a team.

US Youth Soccer has decided to mandate that all youth soccer programs adopt the International (FIFA) standard age groups.  Those age groups are based on the year that the player is born (all players born in 2000 are in the same age group no matter which month they are born).  In Massachusetts, we have been using a year and month method (1/1/2000-7/31/2000 is one age group and 8/1/2000-12/31/2000 is a different age group).  Mass Youth Soccer (MYSA) and the leagues (like BAYS, that we participate in) have been discussing how best to implement this change while not disrupting teams and the fundamental principle of youth soccer, having fun with your friends.

They have decided that all club programs and leagues will adhere to the age requirements as mandated.  Those of you that play on club teams will start to see some roster changes based on the age group changes.  For the town programs, they have added the player’s grade into the criteria.  So starting this fall the age groups will be a combination of age and grade.  They have also decided to change the names of the groupings to grades.  In the chart below you will see the new groupings and the criteria.

1st Grade and Lower 

1st Grade

2010 or later

KG and Lower 

KG

2011 or later

Pre-School and Lower 

PS

The way to use this chart to determine your child’s age group in the fall is to use the year they were born (for example 2000) look at that row and then move to the Grade column if their grade in the fall is that row (or below ie 9th) then they are that grade (in this case 10th grade).  If they will be in the 11th grade then they will be in the 11th grade age group.

We are updating the registration programs, policies and procedures to accommodate these new groups.  Please be patient as we work through this process and the inevitable bumps.
