Soccer Update - July 19, 2020

Dear Parents,

 
As we are all eagerly awaiting guidance on fall activities, we’d like to provide a planning update for the fall 2020 soccer season. The good news is that on July 6th the Commonwealth announced that Youth Sports can move to Phase 3, Step 1. Soccer, which is considered higher risk, is permitted at Level 1 only which allows for individual or socially distanced group activities such as no-contact workouts, aerobic conditioning, individual skill work and drills. During this phase no scrimmages, league games or tournaments may be held. For a detailed overview of the safety guidelines that our league will follow, please visit Mass Youth Soccer’s “Return to Soccer Activities”: https://www.mayouthsoccer.org/return-to-soccer-activities/
 
We will continue to closely monitor state and school district opening guidance to influence our planning and will provide further updates as they become available. To additionally help us with this planning, we will begin accepting fall registrations as noted below.
 
FALL 2020 REGISTRATION
To help us gauge interest for the upcoming season and further define how teams could be organized, the site is now open to accept Fall 2020 registrations. It’s important to note that all players will be “waitlisted” until further guidance on the season can be provided (estimated early to mid-August). Please DO NOT pay at the time of registration.
 
 
OPEN VOLUNTEER POSITIONS
As our organization is entirely run by volunteers, please also consider signing up for any of the various positions that make our league possible, including coaches, assistant coaches, and field support. New this season, and in accordance with state safety guidelines, a Covid-19 Safety Officer is required. This newly created position will be responsible for providing Covid-specific safety training for coaches and ensuring league compliance. If you are interested in learning more about this critical role, please reach out to me directly.
 
As always, thank you for your continued support as we navigate through these unprecedented times. We are committed to ensuring the safety of all players and volunteers, but we appreciate there may be many questions. We’ll continue to provide updates on our website as they become available.
 
Thank you,
 
Tom Guyer

Fall Registration Delayed

Registration for Bolton fall soccer is delayed.

We are holding off on opening registration until we receive guidance from MA Youth Soccer on what the fall season will look like so parents can make an informed choice regarding the fall season. 

 

We will post on the website and email to you when we know more.

Concussion Awareness

Concussion Awareness - Concussions in sports and elsewhere are getting a lot of attention these days, and for good reason, finally.  Several state youth soccer associations have made Concussion Awareness Training mandatory for all youth sports coaches.  Mass Youth Soccer is currently formulating its position on concussions.  In the meantime, here is what all coaches can do both for the benefit of their players and to use in everyday life.  Go to the Center for Disease Control web site and take the free on-line concussion awareness course.  Parents, too!

Thank you for doing this.  Concussion Awareness Training is expected to become mandatory for all youth soccer coaches soon.  Let's all get in the forefront on concussion awareness.
