COACH OF THE MONTH

Now that we are at the beginning of June we are looking for our Coach of the Month for May. Please send us your nominations ASAP so that they can be considered for this award.

President Adam Matthews & MYS Board

 

------------------------------------------

The MYS Board has decided to run a Coach of the Month award program. We are looking for all of you to send us nominations for your Coach or another MYS Coach that you see do something exceptional.

Our first winner actually comes from a “nomination”/email I received from the Dover-Sherborn President. She wanted me to know what great sportsmanship Paul Munchmeyer had shown at their game. When I spoke to Paul he was very quick to let me know that Amy Rowe-Castoldi and he were a coaching team.

They had a choice during the first game of the season and their decision had a positive impact on all. The team was set to play Dover-Sherborn on Saturday, April 8th and it ended up that DS only had 6 players. Although Marlborough did not have to play with less on the field, Coach Paul offered to play short as well and the other team was exceptionally grateful. It was a competitive game down to the end with a 2-1 score, DS with the win, but in the end - the REAL winner was everyone involved - a great example of a coaching and solid sportsmanship!

We're all proud of you! Here's to an awesome season for your girls!!

What a great way to start off this program,
President Adam Matthews & MYS Board

Spring Tryouts - Updated with Location

For those unfamiliar with our programs above the Grade 2 age group. All our teams play in the Boston Area Youth Soccer (BAYS) league which has over 50 participating towns and offers division 1 thru division 4 playing levels. This league offers single age groups, age appropriate formats of 7v7 play for Grades 3&4, 9v9 for Grades 5&6, and 11v11 for Grades 7-12, and is a travel league.  In the spring season teams in division 1 and 2 at U12 and above are eligible for advancement to the Mass Tournament of Champions (MTOC).

The tryout program is intended to provide the opportunity for all eligible MYS participants to be placed on the appropriate team. Attendance is required for a player to be considered for placement on a fall season division 1 or 2 team in the G3 thru G6 age groups. And highly recommended for other division.  Players must tryout in their age appropriate group, this is the age group they will be playing in for the fall season. e.g. Current players in our grade 2 program will attend the tryout for the grade 3 program.   2 Sessions for each age group will be offered to give you multiple opportunities to attend a session. 

 

The schedule for tryouts is: 

 

May 15th  Grade 3 Boys and Girls 5:45 - 6:45   

                 Grade 4 Boys and Girls 7:00 - 8:00

May 16th  Grade 5 and 6 Boys and Girls  6:00  - 7:30

May 17th  Grade 7 and 8 Boys and Girls  6:00  - 7:30

 

May 22 Grade 7 and 8 Boys and Girls 6:00  - 7:30

May 23 Grade 4 Boys and Girls 5:45 - 6:45

             Grade 3 Boys and Girls 7:00 - 8:00

May 24 Grade 5 and 6 Boys and Girls 6:00 - 7:30

 

All tryouts are held at Ghilloni Park

 

Registrations will be opened for each age group, pre-registering helps us to speed up the process so when these are available, please register your child.  

 

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. 

 

Thanks

Henry Garcia

Spring Season Information

Hi Everyone,

This is just a reminder of the policy and Code of Conduct below. Before this past weekend we had violations 3 out the 4 prior weeks and multiple violations one of those weeks. While they were minor, they were still violations and they were all parent violations. Please follow the policies and let’s finish the remaining weeks of the season on a positive note.

Thanks,
Adam

------------------------------------------------------------

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.
