The Mass Mosquito Control Board recommends staying inside at dusk as this is when mosquitos are the most active. BYSA will be close our fields 30 minutes prior to dusk to ensure all players are off the fields in plenty of time, especially the younger players who have to come from the far end of the field.
This means the fields will be closed at the following times:
9/8 - 6:45PM
9/15 - 6:30PM
9/22 - 6:15PM
9/29 - 6:00PM
10/6 - 6:00PM
10/13 - 5:45PM
Hopefully we will have a frost soon and the warning will be lifted. As soon as that happens we will leave the fields open until dark.
Coaches will be ending practices in line with the above times and will be reaching out about possible changes in the days or times of practices. While this is certainly not ideal we always need to put safety first.

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.
