MYS Opening Weekend is Here!

Hello MYS Friends... After a successful first week of clinics (and a bit of rain yesterday!), we are all looking forward to the opening weekend of our Fall season! First, I'd like to thank all of our volunteer coaches and Board members for helping to make this season possible. I hope you'll agree that their efforts to provide a safe environment for soccer give our kids a little bit of "normal" at a time when their world has been anything but. Please join me in thanking them when you see them tomorrow!

Here's a few additional notes for our families as we roll into Saturday...

COVID-19

Marlboro Youth Soccer complies with all Federal, State, and local regulations related to COVID-19. Please help do your part by keeping your child home if they are sick or not feeling well. If you or your child are experiencing any symptoms, even mild ones, please do not attend a practice or a game. All program participants (players, coaches, volunteers) should notify me directly if you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been asked to quarantine by our local authorities. Any information you provide to me will only be shared with our Board of Health to support contact tracing. You can reach me at or via phone at 781-258-9256.

Protect our Refs!

We'll have referees on hand for all Saturday games (Grades 1 through Grade 8). Referees are an important part of our competitive games and, like our players, many of them are also learning their craft. Mistakes will be made... AND THAT'S OK!!!  

We want our referees to enjoy their experience, so MYS will be placing extra emphasis on enforcing our strict Zero Tolerance Policy this season. You'll likely see signage posted at our fields with "gentle" reminders to respect our referees and the job they do. Let's work together to keep all comments from the sidelines filled with nothing but positive encouragement for our players!

Please be Patient!

Opening week is always a bit hectic. Ghiloni Park is a large facility, and it's going to take some time before players and families figure out where exactly they need to be. Some players don't have uniforms yet, and that process can take some time as well. We'll have several members of our Board of Directors on hand tomorrow morning to help point you in the right direction. You can identify us by our black and orange MYS coaching jerseys. Feel free to grab one of us if you have a question (or if you are interested in joining us and volunteering for our organization!).

That's it for now!... As always, you can reach me with any questions or concerns at or via phone at 781-258-9256. On behalf of our entire Board of Directors, I wish you and your families good health and the best of luck on the start of our season. GO PANTHERS!!!

Fall Season to Start on Tuesday, September 7th!

Hello Friends!... Our Board of Directors is excited to announce that our Fall 2021 season is set to begin on Tuesday, September 7th. Our Development Team has been working hard with our partners, the Boston Bolts, on a full program of activities for all age groups that involve expert instruction, competitive play, and most importantly, FUN!

You'll find a complete breakdown of all of our programs on our website at http://www.marlboroyouthsoccer.org/Page.asp?n=120846.  Here's a "Cliff Notes" version of our program for each age group:

  • Kindergarten - Starts Saturday, 9/11 - Our Kindergarten teams will have a full 8-week program of skills clinics and small-sided games led by the Boston Bolts. All teams will have opportunity for more competitive games towards the end of the season. Kindergarten teams play once each week on Saturday mornings from 8 to 9am at Ghiloni Park.
  • Grade 1 - Starts Wednesday, 9/8 - Grade 1 teams will have a 10-week program and 2 opportunities for soccer each week. Each Wednesday, our Grade 1 teams will have a skills clinic led by the Boston Bolts and our MYS coaches at the Bolts' Hillside School facility. Grade 1 teams will also have a weekly game on Saturday mornings from 8 to 9:15am at Ghiloni Park.
  • Grade 2 - Starts Tuesday, 9/7 - Grade 2 programs will look very similar to Grade 1 programs, except that each team will also have a Thursday afternoon practice, every other week. Grade 2 clinics will be at Hillside on Tuesday nights with Saturday games held at Ghiloni from 9:30 to 10:45am.
  • Grades 3-8 - Starts Tuesday, 9/7 - This year, our Grade 3-8 programs will return to a full competitive BAYS schedule. All teams will have an opportunity for a weekly or bi-weekly skills clinic, led by the Bolts at their Hillside School facility. Coaches will also schedule at least one weekly practice for their teams on their own schedule. Home games will be held at Ghiloni Park with away games throughout Eastern MA. Generally speaking, Girls games will be played in the morning and Boys games in the afternoon. The full BAYS schedule should be published this Thursday at https://bays.org/bays/schedule_by_placement_lookup. Rosters will soon be released and I expect that coaches will reach out to their respective families shortly thereafter.
  • High School (Grades 9-12) - Games start Sunday, 9/26 - Please stay tuned for additional details about our HS program, which plays a 7-week BAYS season.

Please know that we are still looking for coaches and assistant coaches for our Grade 1 and Boys Grade 3/4 programs. As most of you know by now, our program is run almost exclusively by volunteers. Without your involvement, our organization simply may not be in position to deliver the exciting program I've outlined above. Coaching is fun! It's a great way to spend some more time with your kids and have a positive impact on your community. You don't have to be a soccer expert, and our Development Team and Boston Bolts partners will be available to provide as much guidance, direction, and even practice plans as necessary. If you would like to help, please contact your respective Division Director, or email me directly at .

Lastly, as we make our final preparations for the Fall season, please know that we are still keeping a watchful eye on the COVID situation and Delta variant. The Commonwealth of MA has not implemented new rules or modified procedures for youth sports, and MA Youth Soccer has not made any modifications to their COVID-19 guidance. We'll continue to monitor the situation and will maintain compliance with all applicable Federal, State, and local regulations. We'll also be completely supportive of every families' individual choice to wear a mask and/or maintain social distancing.

Thanks so much for registering your child for our Fall season. On behalf of our Board of Directors, we are all looking forward to kicking things off soon!

Cheers,

Brian DuPont - President
