Wakefield Night at the Revs!
Wakefield Soccer is proud to announce the New England Revolution Night is coming back this season on Sunday, October 23rd vs Montreal Impact, 4:00PM
This is always a fun event for parents and kids as we take over a section of the stadium to cheer on the team and to tailgate as a group beforehand. The WSA will provide hot dogs and hamburgers but please feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks as well. The tailgate will start around 2:30pm in the main parking lot. We have anywhere from 75 to almost 200 people over the years and we hope 2016 is no different.
We will be in the sideline section, that are normally $40 face value, but we have for you at only $30 each due to our group discount!
We will have some field passes to raffle off for the kids as well at the tailgate. We only have 10 passes, but will be a great experience for the winners. We will also have a team signed ball to giveaway!
This event is not limited to WSA players and parents, so feel free to spread the word to family and friends to bring with you as well.
Tickets can be purchased using the link below and password. The tickets are limited so act quickly. All purchases with this code will join us in our Wakefield section, section 129!

Concussion Awareness Week
The Wakefield Soccer Association recognizes September 12-16 as Concussion Awareness Week in Massachusetts. Concussion Awareness Week is an effort of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) and ThinkTaylor, a non-profit organization founded by former New England Revolution player Taylor Twellman.
U.S. Soccer and Mass. Youth Soccer have taken important steps to address concussions in youth soccer, and WSA has adopted its own concussion policy based on those efforts. More information on the Mass. Youth Soccer effort to address concussion issues can be found at their website. The program of U.S. Soccer to address concussion issues is called Recognize to Recover.
One of the main issues addressed by the MIAA and U.S. Soccer is that parents and coaches must emphasize to players that they need to be candid about any injury they may sustain, and tell their parents and legal guardians, coaches, and referees. U.S. Soccer has also implemented a rule that there is to be no heading by players ten years of age or younger in games or practice. And any player that sustains a significant blow to their head or body, or who complains about or is exhibiting symptoms consistent with having suffered a concussion, or is otherwise suspected of having sustained a concussion, may not return to play or practice unless they have been evaluated by a healthcare professional.
