Spring 2021 Travel Registration is open!

Hello,

This spring MYSA and Essex County Youth Soccer Association is planning on having a travel season.  At this time WSA is opening up travel registration for returning fall players in grades 3-8 as well as players in grades 9-PG.

If our governing bodies (including the governor’s office) deem travel soccer to be too great a risk WSA will explore alternative options for play.  This may include returning to the in town model we instituted in the fall.  We are optimistic that we will have some form of ECYSA play with Covid-19 safety precautions still in place.

For updated information regarding the stages of play and guidelines from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts please visit:

mayouthsoccer.org/returntosocceractivitiespdf/

Wakefield Soccer is working with MYSA, ECYSA, local and state officials to ensure we are in compliance with all safety protocols. For any questions/concerns you may have about safety precautions around Covid-19 you can reach out to us at: [email protected].

For more information on the travel season please visit https://www.wakefieldsoccer.org/programs/travel/Spring-2021/

Volunteer to coach:

If you are interested in coaching this year please indicate so when registering and fill out the form at https://www.wakefieldsoccer.org/coaches/volunteer-to-coach/.  We need additional coaches this season at all levels.

Uniforms:

WSA uses a 2 year uniform rotation to minimize the cost incurred by our membership.  We are currently in the 2nd year of the 2-year cycle.  For players that did not purchase a uniform in the fall/last spring (grades 3 and 9-12) we are still looking into uniform requirements as set by ECYSA.

For returning players who are looking to replace damaged or missing uniforms for all other grades if you wish to order a uniform regardless of the ECYSA requirements you can visit https://www.wakefieldsoccer.org/programs/travel/travel-uniforms/ for more information.  Please contact your coach to confirm the number.

Intramurals/Academy:

Registration for grades Pre-K through 2nd grade will be opening at a later date.

To register for the spring season please go to:

We look forward to seeing you all in the spring.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Thank you,
Thomas Callahan
